The Masters tournament is back in April after a brief hiatus, in fact, the shortest in its history. The 2021 Masters (Golf) precedes a recently completed 84th edition, held in November after the coronavirus pandemic forced it to be delayed by seven months. The tournament will be the inaugural major among the other four to be held at the Augusta National Golf Club.
It has been confirmed that the 2021 tournament will take place between April 8th and 11th of this year. It will retain its traditional venue at the Augusta National Golf Club.
