Who is predicted to win the Masters 2023?

Reigning champion Scottie Scheffler is back at world No.1, Phil Mickelson and arch-nemesis Tiger Woods could cross paths, and LIV Golf's ongoing provocation campaign has added real venom to the 2023 Masters, but until he finally gets to slip into that fabled green jacket, Augusta will always be chiefly about Rory McIlroy.

For nine years the Masters has been the only major title missing from the Northern Irishman's trophy cabinet, and his runner-up finish at Augusta National a year ago was his best in 14 outings. That beauty from the bunker closed out the joint-lowest final round in Masters history, and provided a springboard for a spellbinding upturn in form that's given rise to the hope that, at long last, his time may have come.

Then again. It's easy to forget just how dominant Scheffler was at last year's Masters. The American took the lead during Round 2 and never gave it up, the double-bogey finish meaning he "only" won by three strokes. 

How differently things may have turned out if Cameron Smith hadn't found Rae's Creek just as his chase was gathering momentum. The Australian is in the midst of the most sedentary season of his career despite – or perhaps due to – being LIV Golf's greatest asset, but if there's anybody capable of just switching it on when he wants to, it's him.

Atrocious weather – rain and thunder hit Augusta National yesterday – means those perfectly manicured greens are likely to be much softer and slower than usual. Ready for today's final round? Here's how to watch a 2023 Masters golf live stream from anywhere.

Masters 2023 dates: when is the Masters being played this year?

The 2023 Masters tees off on Thursday, April 6, with the fourth and final round set to be played on Sunday, April 9.

What is the Masters 2023 weather forecast for Augusta?

The Masters is usually a sun-drenched picture of opulence, but with heavy rain expected on all four days of this year's tournament, ticketless fans probably won't mind missing out on the trip to Augusta.

Those showers are likely to be accompanied by thunderstorms on Thursday, which is also set to be the warmest day by a long shot.

After experiencing highs of 86 Fahrenheit during the opening round, come the weekend players, spectators and officials will have to wrap up tight, with temperatures set to plummet to around 50 Fahrenheit on moving day.

The Augusta National grounds crew have their work cut out.

Who won The Masters last year?

Scottie Scheffler cemented his status as the No.1 golfer in the world by cruising to victory at Augusta National a year ago.

The American surged to a five-stroke lead during Round 2 and held his nerve, beating Rory McIlroy by three. 

Though Cameron Smith cut Scheffler's lead to a single stroke during the final round, a succession of torrid shots undid all of the Aussie's work, and he eventually tied for third with Shane Lowry.

Is Tiger Woods playing in The Masters this year?

The man you can't keep out of the headlines, Tiger Woods is expected to compete in the 2023 Masters. 

Although his most recent PGA Tour victory was four years ago and his limp elicits more winces than his sense of humour, you can never write off the five-time Masters champion.

He made a sensational comeback at last year's tournament, making the cut at his 22nd straight Masters despite struggling to walk. 

He eventually finished 47th, though his weekend also featured his worst ever Masters round, a six-over-par 78 on moving day.

How many times has Tiger Woods won The Masters? Who has won the most Masters?

How many times has Tiger Woods won The Masters?

Tiger Woods has won the Masters five times - in 1997, 2001, 2002, 2005 and 2019.

He's also the youngest ever Masters champion, having been just 21 years and 104 days old when he claimed his first green jacket in 1997.

Who has won the most Masters?

Only Jack Nicklaus has six Masters titles to his name and holds the record for the most majors, with 18. Tiger Woods is second, with 15.
