The 2017 Masters Tournament will be the 81st edition of the Masters Tournament and the first of golf's four major championships to be held in 2017. It is scheduled for April 6–9 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia.


The Masters has the smallest field of the four major championships. Officially, the Masters remains an invitation event, but there is a set of qualifying criteria that determines who is included in the field. Each player is classified according to the first category by which he qualified, with other categories in which he qualified shown in parentheses. Dates when a qualifying category will be completely determined are indicated in italics.

Golfers who qualify based solely on their performance in amateur tournaments (categories 6–10) must remain amateurs on the starting day of the tournament to be eligible to play.
