Augusta National will allow a limited number of patrons to attended the 2021 Masters, the tournament announced on Tuesday.

"Following the successful conduct of the Masters Tournament last November with only essential personnel, we are confident in our ability to responsibly invite a limited number of patrons to Augusta National in April," said club chairman Fred Ridley.

The number of fans who will be granted access to the first major of 2021 remains unknown.

"While we are disappointed that we will be unable to accommodate a full complement of patrons this year, we will continue our efforts to ensure that all who purchased tickets from Augusta National will have access in 2022, provided conditions improve," Ridley adds.

Ridley also announced the club intends to host the Augusta National Women's Amateur and the Drive, Chip, and Putt National Finals after both events weren't contested in 2020.

The Masters runs April 5-11, and Dustin Johnson is the defending champion.
