The Masters: 10 of the BIGGEST HITTERS lining up at Augusta

All the talk might be about big-hitting Bryson DeChambeau heading into this week's Masters at Augusta National, but it's with very good reason given the course typically favours big hitters. 

DeChambeau, the pre-tournament favourite for the final major of 2020 alongside fellow bomber Dustin Johnson, arrives here fresh off his recent US Open triumph and a number of social media posts that have seen him crushing his ball past the 400-yard mark for fun.

While power will be key to master Augusta National this week, so too will the ability to work your ball off the tee with a number of doglegs, and a red-hot short game and well-behaved putter.

DeChambeau - and the rest of the power hitters on the PGA Tour - will certainly need to place a premium on good distance control as they will have tons of short irons and wedges into the greens on par-4s and par-5s this week.
