PREPARE yourself for another four days of golfing nirvana from Augusta National.
The Masters is set to go ahead despite the ongoing threat to worldwide sporting events of coronavirus, giving Tiger Woods the chance to retain the Green Jacket he won in dramatic circumstances last year.
Rory McIlroy is the bookies' favourite this time around among a star-studded field for the game's most illustrious major.
When is The Masters 2020?
The Masters tournament will take place between Thursday, April 9 and Sunday, April 12.
As always, it will be held at the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, in the United States.
Last year's winner Tiger Woods is looking to become the first person to retain the title since 2002 – a feat he achieved – and land his sixth overall victory.
Could the Masters be cancelled due to coronavirus?
No, according to Augusta National chairman Fred Ridley. On Wednesday 5 March he reassured fans with a statement reading: "The safety, health and well-being of everyone is our top priority at Augusta National Golf Club.
"We will continue to review the available facts and information with the experts and authorities, establish precautions and take appropriate action to ensure the safety of all involved.
"We are asking that everyone follow the preventative actions advised by the CDC to mitigate the spread of any virus. In addition, we strongly encourage all those travelling to Augusta, Georgia, to become knowledgeable of the most recent travel protocols and restrictions."
How can I watch it on TV?
Every day of the tournament will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Golf and Main Event.
If you want to stream the action, pick up a Now TV pass from £5.99 and watch on your TV, games console, tablet, mobile or computer.
Unlike previous years, after the cut on day two fans will not be able to catch any live action on the BBC, although they will run highlights in the evenings.
