The Masters 2024: Ranking the favorites, contenders and hopefuls

AUGUSTA, Georgia — Along with the blooming azaleas and pollen-covered pines at Augusta National Golf Course, there are other signs that the 88th Masters Tournament, the first major championship of the season, is finally here.

Some of the best golfers in the world who have labored this season are making last-minute changes. Rory McIlroy, who will try to complete the career Grand Slam by finally winning a green jacket, visited swing guru Butch Harmon for help. Justin Thomas, who painfully missed the cut in a driving rainstorm in 2023, parted ways with his caddie, Jim “Bones” Mackay.

Defending champion Jon Rahm made the biggest change of all in December, when he jumped from the PGA Tour to the LIV Golf League. He’ll be one of 13 LIV Golf players in the field, along with Brooks Koepka and Phil Mickelson, who were runners-up a year ago.

It is the first time in more than eight months that the game’s top golfers — from both the PGA Tour and the LIV Golf League — will be competing in the same tournament.

Here’s a look at the 89 golfers in the field, from the guys who can win to those who are simply trying to make the cut.
