The 85th edition of the Masters is set to take place from 8 through 11 April 2021 at Augusta National Golf Club in the state of Georgia, USA. The tournament is known for its stunningly beautiful golf course, meticulous organisation, and a thrilling showdown when it comes to the final round on Sunday.
It’s the only one of the four men’s majors that always takes place at the same venue, yet the tough and already impressive test the tournament presents to the invite-only players evolves constantly. “I have never seen a course that has been renovated and improved as much as Augusta National,” says Mercedes-Benz Brand Ambassador Bernhard Langer about the challenge ahead.
As a proud Global Partner of the Masters, Mercedes-Benz contributes luxurious mobility to the tournament. All players will be provided with an individual Mercedes-Benz vehicle for their time in Augusta, turning every transfer during the week into a time of delight, tranquillity, and comfort.
“I like talking to Mercedes,” says two-time Masters winner Bernhard Langer as he gets the local weather forecast from MBUX, the cutting-edge user interface of his S-Class. Mercedes-Benz Brand Ambassadors Jon Rahm (Spain) and Ian Poulter (England) are also looking forward to their vehicles for the week.
At age 63, the remarkable Bernhard Langer still keeps on breaking records. Just back in November at the 84th edition of the Masters he became the oldest player ever to make the cut at the tournament. Having won the major in 1985 and then again in 1993, Bernhard has secured a lifelong invitation to compete here, and he intends to make the most of that opportunity each year.
Driving down Magnolia Lane, the famous tree-lined approach to Augusta National Golf Club’s iconic Clubhouse, is a moment Bernhard is always looking forward to. “It’s like coming home,” he says. “I like it here.” Currently second in the PGA TOUR Champion’s overall ranking, he is very much a force to be reckoned with.
Jon Rahm, currently number three in the world, is very much a contender when it comes to winning this major. Having finished within the top ten for the last three editions of the Masters adds to show that Jon has what it takes to perform exceptionally well here.
15 worldwide victories heavy, Ian Poulter adds an impressive track record at the Masters, including three top-ten finishes, nine top-25 finishes and 14 out of 15 cuts made. It was also here when he met the Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 4MATIC for the first time – a vehicle he now drives year-round. Yes, Ian’s definitely set for the #PerfectDrive on and off the course.
