Welcome to Championship Sunday at The Masters. We’re here for you all day, as Dustin Johnson looks to hold onto his massive lead for his first Green Jacket. Refresh this page throughout the day for live blog coverage of the 2020 Masters. The live leaderboard is available here, or under the live blog coverage below.
3:20 p.m. – Tears and A Green Jacket
Dustin Johnson has the Green Jacket now, and an emotional interview on the 18th green has us all choked up a little bit.
Congratulations to our 2020 Masters Champion. We’ll see you here again in just five months!
2:51 p.m. – Dustin Johnson Is Your Masters Champion
With a long list of records, Dustin Johnson has won the 2020 Masters Tournament. He finished with a 268, breaking the Tournament record by two shots. He also had the fewest number of bogeys in a win.
Cameron Smith and Sungjae Im finished tied for second at 15-under. Smith became the first player to break 70 in all four rounds of a Masters tournament, shooting 67-68-69-69.
Check out our final round photo gallery and summary here.
2:15 p.m. – 20. Under. Par.
Nobody has ever done this before. Dustin Johnson is making this very unusual Masters something for the record books. He now sits 20 under with two holes to play. The scoring record is in SERIOUS jeopardy now. 270 would tie it. 269 and 268 are very much in play.
And while that’s incredible, Cam Smith is doing something incredible too. He has a chance to be the first player in history to have four rounds in the 60s at the Masters.
1:45 p.m. – 19-Under Now for DJ
For just the second time in Masters history, a player has reached 19-under on the leaderboard. Dustin Johnson’s birdie at 14 put him in the rare air that Jordan Spieth was previously the only man to reach in 2015.
There’s still a lot of bogeys hiding out there in the final four holes, but DJ appears to be well in command.
Oh, and if you’re wondering what happened to Abraham Ancer, who was near the top not long ago, he’s 5-over today, with bogeys on 3, 4, 6, 7, 10 and 11. Augusta National is rarely kind to first-timers.
1:30 p.m. – Drama Evaporating on Memorable Masters
Dustin Johnson is pretty much removing any of the typical Sunday drama we would expect from Augusta National. Quietly 2-under on his round through 13 holes, he currently is on pace to break the scoring record. He also has a four shot lead over Cam Smith and Sungjae Im, who haven’t been able to gain much traction yet.
Meanwhile, Tiger finished his round of 76 by doing something he has NEVER done at The Masters… he birdied all of the last four holes. Turn that nasty 10 on the 12th into a par, and he would have shot a 69 final round, and would be a respectable 8-under par. But alas, it wasn’t meant to be for the defending champion.
Tiger will be hanging out at Butler Cabin waiting for DJ to come in. He will have company there, as amateur Andy Ogletree has locked up the low amateur title this year, with a strong 2-under tournament, after an even-par final round.
Ogletree will be able to hang his hat on having tied with tournament favorite Bryson DeChambeau, who finished 2-under. And, of course he beat Tiger.
Oh, and Bernhard Langer shot a 3-under, 285. That’s 63-year-old Bernhard Langer to you.
12:45 p.m. – Tiger Salvaging Some Respect
After that whole 12th hole debacle, Tiger Woods has bounced back with birdies on 13, 15 and 16. Sure, he’s still 1-over for the tournament, but it’s a lot better than it had been!
12:15 p.m. – Johnson and Smith Make the Turn Up Top
Dustin Johnson has maintained his 2-shot lead as he’s made the turn in at 35. Cam Smith’s 33 helped keep this thing interesting as we head into the home stretch. Buckle up boys and girls.
But here comes Cameron Smith, who birdies 9 after this approach.— Golf Central (@GolfCentral) November 15, 2020

11:45 a.m. – Tiger Has Disastrous 10 on 12th
Well, what little hope Tiger Woods had for making any sort of charge up the leaderboard went splash on the Par 3 12th hole today.
Here’s the rundown: Splash, penalty, splash, penalty, bunker, splash, penalty, rehit on fringe from bunker, lag putt to a foot, tap in for…10.
11:20 a.m. – Rory… Is That You?!
Well, our jinx streak continues, as Sungjae Im has now fallen 3 back with a bogey on 6 and Dustin Johnson’s birdie there. Cameron Smith is now in second place at 14-under, after birdies on 2, 3 and 7… and a remarkable save just now from the trees on 8.
But we’re here to talk about Rory McIlroy right now, who was left for dead after a 75 in Round 1. But he’s stayed steady and as he sits 3-under in his final round through 8 holes, he’s only five shots back of our leader, at 11-under overall.
11 a.m. – We Have a Challenger!
And just like that, the lead is down to just one shot, as Dustin Johnson has back-to-back bogeys on 4 and 5 (after a birdie on 3), and he’s just 15-under now. Meanwhile, the 2019 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year, Sungjae Im has birdies on 2 and 3 and is just one shot back of the leader. He is in trouble on the sixth though.

Last two holes: 2 bogeys.
10:05 a.m. – WGAC Pre-Show Recap
In case you missed the WGAC pre-show with John Patrick and Steve Smith, you can now watch it below! And our WGAC team will also be on air live immediately after the tournament today for post-round coverage.
10 a.m. – Bryson is Dialed In
He’s not going to win the tournament, but Bryson DeChambeau is making sure the final round is just as wild for him as the other rounds have been. He nearly holed out for only the second Masters albatross ever on 13.

9:41 a.m. – DJ is On the Course
Our final grouping has teed off, and Dustin Johnson is safely on the first green in two shots. It’s time to get excited!
Among the top 10, only Cameron Champ has made any movement so far. And he’s done it with flare. The Masters rookie has birdied his first three holes to get to 9-under par. (Oops…as soon as we hit update on the page, Champ triple-bogeyed the par-3 fourth hole. Sorry about that Cameron. Our fault for talking about it.)
9:30 a.m. – Masters Sunday Hype
The Masters folks are doing all they can to hype us up before the 10 a.m. television coverage starts.
9 a.m. – Hole Locations Are Quite Intriguing Today
The good folks at Augusta National are doing their best to make sure these golfers don’t feel comfortable today. Take a look at these hole locations compared to last year’s final round.
Couple of different Sunday hole locations compared to 2019. The 16th is particularly interesting. pic.twitter.com/C0Iyx98hwC— Rex Hoggard (@RexHoggardGC) November 15, 2020
7 a.m. – This Is All About Dustin Johnson
It’s going to be all on the world’s No. 1 golfer today. He pretty much hold his destiny in his hands. Can DJ hold off a pack behind him to win his first Green Jacket?
A special thanks to our friends at Augusta National Golf Club.
