Who Won The Masters Last Year?

Rory Mc Ilroy during practice for the 2019 Masters

All eyes will be on Augusta this Thursday when the greatest golfers in the land swing it out for the chance to sport the famous Green Jacket.

Even seemingly unobtrusive requests to interview the head groundskeeper of the immaculate course or the person who dry cleans the coveted Green Jackets worn by all Masters champions and club members are all politely declined.

Five-time major victor Phil Mickelson sees Woods, who hasn't won a major since the 2008 US Open nor a Masters since 2005, threatening the all-time record of 18 major wins by Jack Nicklaus.

He came extremely close to winning his 15th major at both the PGA Championship and The Open previous year, only to fall short on the final day in both tournaments.

"I think I was really heartened by our staff and the way that our staff really was motivated and inspired by this effort", he said.

However, McIlroy has been in sublime form this season, culminating in victory in the Players Championship at Sawgrass, and many suspect this is the week he will add to his tally of four majors for the first time since 2014. "You have to do it first in order to truly understand that you can do it".

He's 43 now, something that comes into focus when he removes his hat and his bald spot seems bigger than ever.

As much as Augusta National is renowned for its beauty, it is also known as a place where patrons are not allowed to run or take photos during the tournament. Will this be the year that an amateur wins the event?

McIlroy needs a victory at Augusta National to join Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods in having claimed all four major titles. And that remains problematic for Woods, last seen on national television missing a short putt to lose to little-known Lucas Bjerregaard with a berth in the semifinals of the Dell Technologies Match Play tournament last month.

"I feel like I can win", said Woods, who won four times here. "I put myself there with chances on the back nine on various Sundays and just haven't done it".

Wear and tear is an issue for any older athlete, and Woods is no exception. Looking at the statistics in iron play he's really strong with his iron.

A field of 72 of the world's top women amateurs competed last week in the 54-hole tournament, the first two rounds taking place at neighboring Champions Retreat before the top 30 played the final round at Augusta National - the club founded in 1933 that excluded women until 2012.

But I also expect to play my best in front of him, to show what I've got.

That library will be open for business as Woods begins play in his 22nd Masters.

Rory McIlroy: Can he complete the Career Grand Slam?

Well, there's a reason he's been spending a lot of time practicing 5-footers.
