2020 Masters champion Dustin Johnson

The annual rite of spring is back this year when the Masters returns to its traditional April timeslot. Limited fans (patrons) will be in attendance at Augusta National to see the world’s top-ranked golfer, Dustin Johnson, defend the title he won just five months ago.

TV coverage of the 2021 Masters will be on ESPN (Thursday and Friday at 3 p.m. ET) and CBS (Saturday at 3 p.m. ET and Sunday at 2 p.m. ET).

But if you don’t have cable, or you’re looking for coverage that is far more comprehensive than the TV broadcasts, here are some different ways that you can watch a live stream of the Masters. Note that Masters.com will also have coverage, but those streams haven’t always been the most reliable, so we’ll look at some alternate options here:

While the television broadcasts only start about halfway through each round and won’t show every golfer evenly, you can watch four different live streams (Featured Groups; Holes 4, 5 & 6; Amen Corner Live; and Holes 15 & 16) all day for all four rounds of the Masters on ESPN+ right here:

Masters 2021 Preview

The azaleas are in full bloom, the birds are chirping and the roars (with a few less decibels) are back. The Masters will feel a whole lot like it did pre-pandemic as Augusta National hosts the 85th edition of golf’s annual tradition unlike any other this week.

Just five months removed from slipping on the green jacket last November, Dustin Johnson will be looking to become the first golfer to successfully defend a Masters title since Tiger Woods won back-to-back Masters in 2001 and 2002.

Johnson enters the week as the betting favorite, despite not being in top form. The No. 1 player in the world has struggled in his last few starts, logging finishes of 28th, 48th and 54th.

The talk of the game of golf heading into the 85th Masters surrounds 2015 champion Jordan Spieth, who captured his first win in nearly four years this past Sunday at the Valero Texas Open. Spieth’s resurgence this season has featured four top-five results, including his 12th career PGA TOUR victory in San Antonio this past weekend.

Among the other favorites and their accompanying storylines are:

  • Four-time major champion Brooks Koepka, who is returning less than three weeks after knee surgery
  • Jon Rahm, who is looking to win his first major and whose wife gave birth to the couple’s first baby last week
  • Justin Thomas, who is in search of his second-career major and is less than a month removed from a huge win at The PLAYERS Championship
  • Bryson DeChambeau, whose grip it and rip it style of golf has led him to the U.S. Open title last fall and a win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational a few weeks ago
  • Rory McIlroy, who will be looking to snap out of a recent funk and capture the elusive career grand slam

Last year’s Masters was postponed from its usual April timeslot due to the coronavirus pandemic, and in turn, presented the unique fall showcase. There was little electricity in the air as patrons weren’t allowed on the grounds. And the usual full display of blooming nature was replaced by fall foliage.

The 36-year-old Johnson made history in the first Masters ever contested in the fall, shooting a 20-under par score which eclipsed Woods’ Masters scoring record of 18-under. Johnson took a four-shot lead into the final round and ended up winning by five strokes over Australian Cameron Smith and South Korean Sungjae Im, who finished tied for second at 15-under par.

Johnson struggled out of the gate in the final round and watched his large lead quickly dwindle to a single stroke heading into the 6th hole. However, the world’s No. 1 player responded to the pressure, shooting a 33 on the back nine and finishing with a final-round score of 68 to capture the biggest title of his career.

Golf fans will be treated to the familiar sights and sounds this year as the Masters returns to its normally scheduled place on the calendar. Augusta National will also be welcoming a limited amount of spectators back to the grounds this weekend to generate a few roars around the course. Spectators will have to adhere to the COVID-19 protocols in place including masking and social distancing.

Conditions are expected to be much firmer and faster than the soft course that the players ate up in the fall. Temps are expected to be in the low-to-mid 80’s with winds less than 15 mph. There is a chance of thunderstorms throughout the weekend.
