The 2020 Masters will be the first ever played in November.  For that matter, this will be the first Masters ever played later in the year than April 15th.  We know you have questions about this historic event, so we’ll try our best to set the proper expectations for this once in a lifetime experience.

What will the weather be like in November at the Masters?

According to our friends at Weather.com, the average high temperature in Augusta for the month of November is 69 degrees.  The average low temperature is 41 degrees.  That’s 8 degrees cooler, on average, than the typical day in April.

In our experience, the weather in Augusta in the shoulder months will vary over the course of the week.  We have a saying about the weather at the Masters — At least one day will be hot, at least one day will be cold, and at least one day it will rain.  We expect that will hold true for the November Masters, as well.

What time is sunset in November at the Masters?

The days will definitely be shorter in November than in April.  In fact, they will be almost two and a half hours shorter. Whereas sunset in April would normally fall close to 8:00PM, the sunsets for the November Masters will be closer to 5:30PM.

For this reason, it seems safe to assume that tournament play will begin first thing in the morning.  Historically, the first tee times for the final rounds are usually about 10:30AM, but you can expect them to start a couple hours earlier in November.

If weather limits play, there is also the possibility of starting players off split tees on one or more days.  This is rare for Augusta National, but not without recent precedent.  The final Sunday round played in 2019, won by Tiger Woods, was started on split tees so they could conclude play before incoming storms arrived.

What about the azaleas?

Azaleas are typically a springtime flower, so the groundskeepers may opt for other fall-blooming plants.  However, there is a breed of azalea called the Encore that has been cross-bred to bloom in the late summer and fall so there is some hope for azaleas in November.  Augusta National has the finest horticulturists in the world who will be working overtime to make the course look spectacular in fall colors.  It will be exciting to see what they come up with
