Willett back in Augusta to defend Masters title

Hatton will tee off at 12.45pm local time alongside current Open Championship victor Henrik Stenson from Sweden, and Argentina's Angel Cabrera who won the Masters in 2009. This year marked Garcia's 37th birthday as well as the 37th anniversary of the first time his idol, Seve Ballesteros, won the Masters title.

That happened just yards away from where he first slipped on his green jacket a year ago after shooting a bogey-free 67 as Spieth melted down on No. 12 on Sunday.

On the plus side, three 50-something-year-old players will be hanging around, including past champions Fred Couples (1992) and Larry Mize (1987), as well as Steve Stricker.

"Like I was saying earlier, you've achieved the greatest height in your game".

A bogey at the last gave him a one-over-par 73 that left him eight shots back of first-round leader Charley Hoffman.

Asked if Augusta's chef was confident of making Yorkshire puddings from scratch, Willett told his pre-tournament press conference: "He'd best be, otherwise I'll be in the kitchen making sure his oil is hot enough!"

A year ago it logged the most accidents among the 10 biggest commuter railroads, including its first fatal wreck in two decades. Christie has cut an annual state subsidy for the agency and diverted $2.94 billion in capital funding to day-to-day operations.

Willett also revealed that he plans to use the dinner to pay tribute to the late Arnold Palmer by leading his fellow champions in a toast to the four-time Masters champion, with the glasses charged with his favourite drink of iced tea and lemonade.

The Masters tweeted a picture of Tuesday night's Champions Dinner, which included dozens of major champions rocking their green jackets.

A brutal opening hole that played more like a par-5 into the wind. "I feel ready to go". "Playing Augusta at the weekend would be nice with the (good) weather coming in, but we had that in our own hands and unfortunately we let that slip".

"Honestly, I think he'll be quite thrilled to get this Masters out of the way and then concentrate on the rest of his career without being the current Masters champion", Montgomerie said.

Willett became the first Briton to win the Green Jacket in 20 years when he shot a five-under-par 67 as 2015 champion Spieth crumbled during a thrilling final round. I'm going to have to drive it well, hit my irons well, putt it well. "I don't know how to spell oscillating, but I heard people say that, so I think it was definitely moving a little bit". "Today you just sort of go with it".
