Welcome to the 86th Masters weekend, well eventually anyway. The start of the opening round has been delayed by 30 minutes.
According to tournament officials, the gates will now open at 7:30 a.m., with Honorary Starters taking the tee at 8:15 a.m. and first tee times at 8:30 a.m.
So push back all those first round start times we told you about with our Augusta sister stations, and get ready for another amazing day at Augusta National.
We’ll have complete coverage all day right here.
