    Louis Oosthuizen has been paired along with Bryson DeChambeau and Jon Rahm in one of the featured groups for the opening two rounds of the 2020 Masters.

    All eyes will be on DeChambeau to see if he is capable of tackling the challenging Augusta National course, while Rahm, who celebrated his 26th birthday on Tuesday, goes in search of his maiden Major crown.

    Oosthuizen will once again be out to go one step further than in 2012 when he lost to Bubba Watson in a dramatic playoff in Georgia. A second Major title will be a welcome victory for the South African.
