The first Major of the year will take place in early April, being played, as ever, at stunning Augusta National.

Hideki Matsuyama became the first player from the continent of Asia to win The Masters when he triumphed in 2021.

Augusta National is one of the most famous golfing venues on the planet, designed by Bobby Jones and Alister MacKenzie it has seen much drama over the decades.

Jack Nicklaus has won The Masters on the most occasions with six victories, while Tiger Woods will still be hoping to have another crack at winning another after he dramatically won his 5th Green Jacket in 2019.

Tiger missed the 2021 event due to breaking his leg in a dramatic car accident at the start of that year.

Whether the crowd favourite will be back to defend his title is still to be seen.

Every year Rory McIlroy is one of the players that most comes under the microscope – he needs an Augusta victory to complete the career Grand Slam.

The Northern Irishman has come close on several occasions, no closer than in 2011 when he led by four shots going into the final round only to lose by 10 strokes.

So who will be slipping on a Green Jacket come the Sunday evening on 10th April 2022 - well we can't wait to find out!
