It’s that time of the year again! The 87th annual Masters Golf Tournament is just around the corner, and we can hardly wait to see what’s in store. The Masters is the most prestigious event in the golfing world. It’s where the best golfers come together to compete for the iconic green jacket and cement their place in golf history. 

The 2023 Masters Tournament will be the first year to host LIV golfers on the field. The PGA Tour banned LIV members from playing in their events but has since declared that previous winners of the Masters and Players Championship have been invited to compete in this year’s Masters. 

There will be 18 LIV players in the mix, with six of those attendees being former Masters champions. The Masters will also be featuring a newly extended par-5 13th hole. 

With all of these new firsts, The 2023 Masters is sure to be one of the most intriguing yet. Here’s everything you need to know about the 2023 Masters Tournament, including the full Masters schedule, how to watch The Masters at home and how to buy tickets with SeatGeek.

Who won The Masters 2022 tournament?

The 2022 Masters Tournament came to an end with Scottie Scheffler scoring his first Masters Championship victory at 10-under 278. Coming in second place was Rory Mcllroy, and tied for third were Shane Lowry and Cameron Smith. 

This year will bring the same contenders to the green, and competition is looking fierce. Scottie Scheffler has had a killer season already, taking home victories at the WM Phoenix Open and The Players Championship earlier this year. If Scottie Scheffler secures the 2023 Masters Win, he will be the fourth ever golfer to win consecutive green jackets, and the first to do so since Tiger Woods in 2002.
