Masters 2022 Overview
The 2022 Masters field will include the five-time champion at Augusta, the one & only Tiger Woods who makes an incredible comeback after a lengthy layoff after a near-fatal car accident. Could Tiger adorn the Green Jacket once again?
The field of 91 will all be competing around this stunning Augusta National layout for a share of the $11,500,000 prize purse. The winner collecting not just the title and the permanent Master’s Trophy but also, a cool $2.070,000 winner’s cheque, a gold medal and probably the one thing that every golfer dreams about, being fitted out then presented with the world-famous Green Jacket.
This Augusta National course is a test for all and always produces thrills and spills every April. It’s what makes this tournament so exciting and an event that golfing and sporting fanatics alike look forward to every year.
The course will be playing 7,510 yards long, it’s a par 72 with four par fives, four par threes with the remaining ten holes par fours. It’s a parkland track that requires precision and accuracy, especially at the ever eventful Amen Corner where many a Masters has been lost and won.
Players to look out for
Scottie Scheffler is on fire at the moment and it could be a case of ‘catch me if you can’. With three titles in as many months, the other victory inbetween being the Arnold Palmer Invitational. This form has seen Scottie Scheffler rise to be the new World Number one.
How fitting would it be to see this talented young golfer adorning the Green Jacket on Sunday evening in Georgia? With three titles already in the bag this year, the next one could well be a major and it could happen as soon as this weekend.
If we forget about the missed cut last weekend, Rory’s recent form is remarkable with eleven Top 20 finishes in his previous thirteen attempts.
I couldn’t think of a better script this week for us all to be watching Rory McIlroy being fitted and presented with the Green Jacket, It would be a dream come true for Rory to achieve that ever-elusive career grand slam at Augusta this week and I’m sure it would be a popular victory for the whole sporting world.
Cmon RORY, you can do it!!
The 28 year old from Louisville, Kentucky hasn’t won since winning The Players Championship at Sawgrass in 2021 but he does arrive here at Augusta with the stats that matter. JT currently ranks 3rd on the PGA Tour for SG tee to green and 5th in SG approach play.
With those stats in the bag, you’d expect some fine recent form and this certainly applies to JT. It actually reads truly remarkable, with six Top 5 finishes in his last thirteen attempts, ten of those are Top 20s, JT is usually always lurking around at the top of leaderboards.

2020 and looking back to where it all began
A very tough year for us all with Covid and official lockdown commencing as the 2020 golf season was just days away. Our last event was September 2019 at Portal Golf Club hosting Liverpool FC – Forever Reds Golf day, who would have thought this would be the last event for nearly 2 years!
