The chairman of Augusta National said yesterday that they plan to allow a limited number of spectators for the Masters in April. But because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the tournament was moved to November for the first time ever.

Furthermore, a small number of spectators will also be allowed on site for the Augusta National Women's Amateur and the Drive, Chip and Putt National Finals, which were postponed previous year, in the run up to the Masters.

It is hoped that all four golf majors will be held in their traditional slots this year.

"Nothing is, or will be, more important than the well-being of all involved".

The Masters is scheduled to take place at its Georgia home from April 8 to 11, with Johnson looking to follow up the stunning 20-under-par performance that saw him win a first green jacket.

"While we are disappointed that we will be unable to accommodate a full complement of patrons this year, we will continue our efforts to ensure that all who purchased tickets from Augusta National will have access in 2022, provided conditions improve".

Ridley added that the club is in the process of communicating with all ticket holders and said that refunds will be issued to those patrons not selected to attend.

"We miss the fans out here every week", Smith said. "It's going to be really exciting".
