Mickelson Ready for 2021 Masters Tournament

Lefty in search of fourth career green Jacket

For the second time in six months, the best talent in men's golf will descend upon Augusta National Golf Club for The Masters.

Phil Mickelson will be competing in his 29th career Masters Tournament this week at Augusta National, and boasts one of the most decorated resumes in the history of the event. Mickelson is a three-time Masters Champion, winning the Green Jacket in 2004, 2006 and 2010.

After competing in the event for 28 years and playing his signature risk-reward style, Mickelson has gotten to know every nook and cranny of Augusta National, and for Mickelson, the main focus throughout the tournament is his performance on the greens.

"I would say for the last decade, the greens here are in the top 25% of softest we play on [the PGA] Tour, and the golf course's only defense is the greens," Mickelson said. "So when the greens are firm, the precision, the course management, the angles ... all of this stuff becomes incredibly important in your ability to play this course effectively."

Here is a breakdown of the television coverage for the 2020 Masters Tournament (all times ET):
