» Masters tee times: Who is paired with Tiger Woods?

This year’s field matches last year’s qualifying list of 87 players, which was the smallest in two decades. The Masters hasn’t broken 100 since 103 players teed up in 1966. The 2011 Masters field came closest with 99 qualifiers.

Play begins Thursday, April 11, at Augusta National Golf Club.

The Masters — an invitation only event — traditionally has the smallest field of golf’s majors. Players qualify through one of 18 categories or through special exemption.

Shugo Imahira of Japan has been awarded a special invitation to play in the Masters. Imahira won the Bridgestone Open on the Japan Golf Tour and is ranked No. 53 in the world. Special invitations are typically reserved for international players who do not have full PGA Tour status.

This is the second straight year Augusta National has given out a special invitation.
