The Masters: Latest tee times, groups, how to watch, updated odds and prize money on day two

The Masters is in full swing, with Scottie Scheffler backing up his pre-tournament status as favourite to hit a flawless 66 on a weather-hit day one.

The world no1 sits at six-under, one off the pace set by former US Open champion Bryson DeChambeau. Scheffler has seemingly fixed his putting woes and picked up back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and Players Championship, before having to settle for second at the Houston Open.

The 27-year-old has one major to his name, winning the Green Jacket in 2022, and it would be a big surprise if that tally was not added to in the coming months.

Second-favourite Defending champion Jon Rahm arrived at Augusta National for the first time as a LIV Golf player but endured a tough opening round to drop almost entirely out of contention, while third-favourite Rory McIlroy is T17 on one-under.

Not every player managed to get round the course after rain saw the start delayed by two and a half hours, meaning Tiger Woods and 26 others will resume at 7.50am local time (12.50pm BST) before the second round begins soon after.

When is The Masters?

The 2024 Masters got underway on Thursday, April 11, 2024, and runs through to Sunday, April 14 2024.

As ever, Augusta National in Georgia will host the tournament. Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Tom Watson will once again take up their roles as honorary starters, before the first round then gets up and running.

Erik van Rooyen hit the opening tee shot at 10.30am local time (3.30pm BST) after delays due to adverse weather. The final group of Dustin Johnson, Collin Morikawa and Tommy Fleetwood teed off six hours later.

The winner will be presented with the famous Green Jacket on Sunday evening.

How to watch The Masters

TV channel: All four days of the tournament will be televised live in the UK on Sky Sports Golf and Sky Sports Main Event.

Featured group coverage will begin at 2pm BST on Thursday and Friday, with full coverage following at 7:30pm BST.

Live stream: Sky Sports subscribers will be able to watch all the action online via the Sky Go app.

The Masters prize money

The prize money will soon be confirmed.

Last year, the total purse was $18million, as Rahm took home $3,240,000 for winning the Green Jacket.

Brooks Koepka and Phil Mickelson finished in a tie for second and received $1,584,000 each.

What is the Champions Dinner?

All previous winners of the Masters are invited to the Champions Dinner, which is held on Tuesday evening on the week of the tournament.

The defending champion delivers a speech, something Rahm admitted had been playing on his mind before he hosted this week.

"When I tell you that this has definitely been rent free in my head...I usually have no issues public speaking,” he said.

“No problem. I'll get up there and talk about anything.

"Just the image of standing up and having everybody in that room look at me and having to speak to all these great champions, it's quite daunting."

Rahm also got to set the menu for this year’s dinner, which included ‘Mama Rahm's Classic Lentil Stew’.
