The Masters has returned to its April spot on the calendar with the 85th edition of the tournament entering Moving Day at Augusta National. The excitement is palpable, and history may well be on the line with a number of top-tier golfers looking for their first green jacket while defending champion Dustin Johnson became the third with that distinction to miss the cut in the last five years.
The most exciting time of the year on the golf calendar continues with the 2021 Masters already showing to be a star-studded through two rounds. While attending the Masters is a dream for many, simply being able to watch golf on the grandest stage of them all is an incredible treat each year, and we here at CBSSports.com are thrilled to bring you wall-to-wall coverage of the Masters throughout this week.
CBS Sports offers extensive, week-long coverage across all its platforms with its traditional 18-hole broadcast beginning with the third round on Saturday and continuing with final-round action on Sunday. Jim Nantz, in his 36th consecutive year covering the Masters, serves as host for the 34th time. Three-time Masters champion Sir Nick Faldo, on the 25th anniversary of his third victory, joins Nantz in the 18th tower as the lead analyst. Nantz and Faldo are joined by CBS Sports’ incredible golf team as detailed below.
Justin Rose has retained his lead through 36 holes, but it has diminished massively as a number of stars — namely Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas and Tony Finau are looking to bring him down on a Moving Day that should live up to its moniker. Round 3 is already underway, and the intensity is heightened with the first major of 2021 on the line. Follow live Masters leaderboard action.
