Much has transpired in the upper tier of pro golf in less than five months since November’s COVID-19-delayed 2020 Masters Tournament.
Jordan Spieth is back in the green jacket conversation. So is soon-to-be 48-year-old Lee Westwood, as the 85th Masters begins Thursday at a firm and fast Augusta National Golf Club.
There is no change, however, in the favorite’s role – Dustin Johnson’s record run around Augusta National Golf Club 144 days ago is still fresh in the minds of everyone.
Johnson, the world’s No. 1-ranked player, has the rare chance to pull off what could be called a “Dustin Double.” Since the 2020 Masters was the last major championship that year and this is the first one of 2021, Johnson can win the same major championship consecutively.
