Masters Tournament 2021: Defending Masters champion Dustin Johnson is focused on winning back-to-back titles this week at Augusta National, and becoming the first player to win two green jackets in five months. His quest, however, got off to a shaky start early on Thursday, with bogeys at 1 and 5. But the two-time major champ was able to turn things around later in his round.
On Friday, Johnson will get to sleep in a little, as he won’t be starting his second round until 1:36 p.m. ET. By then he should have a good idea of what the lead — and the cutline — will be. Lee Westwood and amateur Tyler Strafaci will play alongside DJ once again on Friday.
Other notable groupings for the second round include Justin Rose, Shane Lowry and Matt Kuchar (9:36 a.m. ET); Jordan Spieth, Cameron Smith and Collin Morikawa (10:54 a.m. ET); Bryson DeChambeau, Max Homa and Adam Scott (10:30 a.m. ET); Phil Mickelson, Tommy Fleetwood and Scottie Scheffler (10:06 a.m. ET); Rory McIlroy, Xander Schauffele and Jon Rahm (1:48 p.m. ET); and Patrick Reed, Daniel Berger and Paul Casey (2:00 p.m. ET).
Masters purse 2021
The purse at the 2021 Masters is expected to be the same as last year: $11.5 million. Based on that total, the winner’s share of the prize money would be $2.07 million.
Masters Tournament odds for 2021
Johnson (+950) is the favorite to win the 2021 Masters, according to odds from DraftKings. That means a $100 bet on Johnson would result in a $950 payout.
Bryson DeChambeau (+1100), Jordan Spieth (+1150), Justin Thomas (+1150) and Jon Rahm (+1200) round out the top five on DraftKings’ odds list.
