The Masters is here and if the four days in front of us can match the build-up, we really are in for a tournament for the ages.

Rory McIlroy is set for his latest tilt at the career Grand Slam, Phil Mickelson could become the oldest-ever winner, Bubba Watson wants to join an elite group with three or more green jackets, Sergio Garcia fancies retaining the one he claimed last year and Open champion Jordan Spieth is the bookies’ favourite.

Oh, and you may have heard, Tiger Woods is swinging like he used to and playing pain-free with a smile on his face.

The big names arrive at Augusta National in fine form – most of them have won over the past few months – and will battle it out for 2018’s first major.

We’ll make sure you don’t miss a thing with our live coverage from before the first drive is struck each morning until the final putt drops on Sunday night. We’ll have all the latest breaking news from the course with Derek Lawrenson and Charles Sale chipping in, the best pictures, reaction on social media and of course, you can follow your favourites with our leaderboard.
