At the 2020 Masters, 43 of the top 50 players in the Official World Golf Ranking are competing with the highest-ranked player not in the field being No. 13 Daniel Berger.
The first group teed-off at 7:10am EST and 25 minutes later or 7:35am, the horn sounded. (Golf Channel)
Players and their caddies returned to practice areas at about 9:40am EST.
The forecast calls for rain, including thundershowers and some lightning, until expected clearing in the afternoon. Nightfall (in Eastern Standard Timezone) will play a factor this evening.
With a weather delay this morning, there was no better time to reach back to 2005 and one of the greatest moments in Masters history. Just hit play. Just Do It.
