The Masters 2017: Tee times, pairings, field, leaderboard and more

Here is everything you need to know about the 2017 Masters.

The Masters, one of the most prestigious tournaments in golf, is set to take place this week at Augusta National Golf Club from April 6-9.

We already know Tiger Woods won't be participating in the 2017 Masters, but there are still intriguing questions entering this year's tournament. Will 2016 Masters winner Danny Willett pull off another monumental upset and claim his second straight green jacket, or will Jordan Spieth avenge last year's final-round collapse? If not, maybe world No. 1 Dustin Johnson, the favorite to win the 2017 Masters, can earn his fourth tournament win of the year.
