Photos: 2023 Masters at Augusta National Golf Club

The first men’s major championship of 2023 is underway.

The 87th Masters began Thursday at Augusta National Golf Club, as 88 golfers began their quest to claim the coveted green jacket. And there are plenty of mesmerizing storylines.

Can Rory McIlroy complete the career grand slam? Can Scottie Scheffler become the fourth to go back-to-back? How well will Tiger Woods play, and how will the 18 LIV golfers in the field fare? Then there’s the weather, which is going to be sketchy with rain and storms, especially on Friday and Saturday.

Safe to say, excitement levels are off the charts, and the week is just getting started.
