Masters Golf 2019 Live : The Masters morning rundown, your one-stop shop to catch up on the action from Augusta National. The 2019 Masters Tournament will be the 83rd edition of the Masters Tournament and the first of golf’s four major championships to be held in 2019. The Master’s festivities will begin Tuesday night with the Champions dinner, hosted by last year’s champion.
It’s that time of the year where everyone in the golf world has one question on their mind: Who are you picking to win the 2019 Masters? With an 87-man field featuring generational talent going head-to-head at Augusta National, rarely has such a call ever been more difficult.
All eyes are on Rory McIlroy this year as The Ulsterman looks to complete his career grand slam, but there’s some stiff competition throughout the field, namely from many of his young contemporaries like Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, and Rickie Fowler. Of course, we would be remiss without mentioning Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, both of whom are among a litany of names looking to add another green jacket to their respective collections.
Simply put, this field for the Masters is loaded with stars, including many who have already played tremendous golf in 2019 both on the PGA Tour and worldwide. Narrowing this down to a champion and top finishers is a tough task, but we here at CBS Sports are certainly up to it. Take a look at our 1-87 ranking of the Master’s field, and figure out when your favorites will tee off with our list of Thursday tee times.

The 2019 Masters is nearly here, starting off the 83rd edition of this storied event at Augusta National. While this tournament does have the smallest field of any of the four golf majors, it boasts all the best talent on tour.
In addition to the 20 past champions that will tee off beginning on Thursday—these players secure the right to compete in the Masters for life by earning a green jacket—there are 67 other contenders all seeking the glory that winning this tourney brings. It’s a tough major to predict a winner for, but some players are currently standing out as having the most potential to win the Masters in 2019.

“I wanted to hole that putt on the last (Wallace missed a birdie at the ninth), and I didn’t, and then went to a playoff and it got a little bit more serious than how the nine holes went,” Wallace said. “I guess I just I wanted to win this. I want to break history somewhat.”
Wallace tied Lyle with a five-under 22, which included this ace at No. 8:As Wallace alluded, no one has captured the Par 3 Contest and Masters in the same week. (Media members reminding their audiences no one has won the Par 3 and Masters in the same week: a true tradition unlike any other.) But there have been close calls, with Raymond Floyd (1990) and Chip Beck (1993) finishing runner-up.
Wallace, who won three times on the Euro Tour last season, will tee off with Bernhard Langer and Alvaro Ortiz at 12:10 p.m. on Thursday.
Finau returns to scene of crime
On April’s Fools Day, Tony Finau and Nike “released” the Finau1, a shoe with exaggerated ankle support. A sneaker that gave a not-so-subdued, and sardonic, nod to Finau’s gruesome injury at the 2018 Par 3 Contest.
However, Wednesday proved that fake boot is very much real, as the 29-year-old broke out the high, hightop at the seventh hole, the scene of the crime last spring.
