After a delayed start, the 2020 US Master, the 84th edition, is set to get underway at the Augusta National on November 12th – 15th.
There is likely to be a field of 96 hoping for the glory of being able to don the famous green jacket, however this year there will be no patrons or guests allowed on the grounds at this third Major of the year.
