Augusta National's Masters Tournament is set to give the Peach State a slightly more refined and appreciable sporting experience than even Sunday night's WrestleMania. The centerpiece of EA Sports' Tiger Woods 12, Bobby Jones' course will once again host the PGA season's first major championship. Since 1934, the tournament has grown into golf's premier event, with the awarding of its famed green jacket among the sport's most beloved traditions.
TV schedule: The 2011 Masters Tournament begins Thursday, April 7 at 8 am ET in Augusta, Georgia's Augusta National Golf Club. The Par 3 Contest begings 12:30 pm ET on April 6. ESPN, CBS, and Masters.com will handle broadcasting throughout the tournament -- if you're thinking about heading out, there's actually a lot going on all week long.
Field: A complete list of players can be found here, highlighted by tournament record-holder Tiger Woods, last year's champ Phil Mickelson, Georgia's own Bubba Watson and Matt Kuchar, sweet hat bro Rickie Fowler, and world No. 1 Martin Kaymer.
Pairings and tee times for the first two rounds will be announced April 5.
