The azaleas are back, the flowers bursting with color, and, after an absence in the pandemic-scarred 2020 event, the patrons are too. Those are just a couple of the ways earmarking the differences between this year and last at Augusta National, which, on Thursday, will host the first major championship of the 2020 season, the Masters. Back in its traditional spot after being contested in November because of the novel coronavirus, there’s no shortage of storylines and possibilities, ranging from Dustin Johnson trying to defend his victory from less than six months ago, to Jordan Spieth, the 2015 champ who returns to Georgia as a favorite—this after ending a winless drought of almost four years with a victory last week in Texas.

To help set the stage for one of the most exciting weeks of the season, here’s a look at the 2021 Masters from a number of perspectives.
