Masters honorary starters 2024 tee off time, names, and more revealed

The Masters continues its tradition of commencing the tournament with honorary golfers, who take the initial shot of the event. The 2024 Masters Honorary starters will commence at 10:10 a.m. ET on Thursday, April 11, with Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, and Gary Player executing the inaugural shot.

All three are past Masters champions and have upheld this tradition for the past few years. Jack Nicklaus, who holds the record for the most Masters victories in history, has served as the honorary starter of the Augusta event since 2010.

Two years later, in 2012, Player joined him, followed by Watson. These legendary golfers will take the ceremonial shot, after which the tournament officially begins at 10:30 a.m. ET.

Jack Nicklaus secured his first Masters victory in 1963 by defeating Tony Lema by one stroke. He then won in 1965 and successfully defended his title in 1966. His fourth triumph at the Masters occurred in 1972, followed by another win in 1975. Nicklaus clinched his sixth Masters victory in 1986.

Meanwhile, Gary Player boasts three Masters titles, with his first victory in 1961. He claimed his other two victories in 1974 and 1978.

Tom Watson, the third honorary starter of the 2024 Masters, has won the tournament twice. His initial triumph was in 1977, followed by another win in 1981.

Earlier, the Masters was supposed to start at 8:00 a.m. ET and the honorary starter at 7:40 a.m. ET. However, it was postponed due to inclement weather.
