The Road to Augusta: Anticipation Builds for the 2024 Masters

Spring is in the air, and with it comes the unmistakable buzz surrounding one of golf’s most prestigious tournaments – the 2024 Masters. As the iconic azaleas begin to bloom at Augusta National Golf Club, fans around the world eagerly await the 2024 edition, promising a week of captivating storylines, breathtaking shots, and the crowning of a new champion.

Who Will Wear the Green Jacket?

The 2023 Masters saw a thrilling finish, with Jon Rahm etching his name in history. This year, all eyes will be on Rory Mcilroy again as he bids for a career grand slam. Major favourites such as Brooks Koepka will be hoping to bring the LIV brand more success on the Major stage and favourite Scottie Scheffler will be looking to impress following wins at Bayhill and Sawgrass in March.

Will a seasoned veteran add another Masters title to their legacy, or will a young gun rise to the occasion and claim their place among the legends?

Storylines to Watch At The 2024 Masters

Beyond the individual battles, several captivating storylines promise to unfold:

  • Can Jon Rahm Defend His Title? Repeating at Augusta National is no easy feat. In fact it’s only happened on 3 occasions. Jack Niklaus was the first, followed by Nick Faldo. The most recent defence was by Tiger Woods in 2002. To add to that difficulty, Rahm left the PGA Tour for LIV Golf earlier this year, which we already know with limited events makes being Major ready more difficult. 
  • Contenders: Scottie Scheffler will deservedly go into the Masters as favourite, following his formidable form in March. However, the Masters can throw up many storylines. Will Rory finally get the job done? Can Justin Thomas end his run of poor form? Can young hopeful Tom Kim live up to the expectation of him at such a young age?
  • LIV vs PGA: There was a lot of focus around the break up from the tour last season with a new found hunger from PGA Tour players to stop a LIV player from winning at Augusta. With the merger still up in the air, what will the mood be like between opposing tour players? And will there still be that extra desire to avoid a LIV win?
