How the 2024 Masters field is shaping up at the turn of the year

Augusta National Golf Club

Take a look at how the Masters 2024 field is filling out as changes to the system of qualification could mean a smaller field for the first Major of the year.

There will be a LIV presence with plenty of former Masters champions having jumped ship.

Defending champion Jon Rahm will be among those LIV rebels turning out at Augusta. He joined the likes of Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson after the 2023 PGA Tour season.
