ESPN releasing new documentary on the Masters
ESPN announced Monday that it is releasing a new documentary giving a behind-the-scenes look at the 2020 Masters.
“The One in November” will chronicle a Masters unlike any other with a focus on the days leading up to the event, following those on the ground who are responsible for conducting the world’s most famous tournament. ESPN says “Viewers will see and hear from officials and executives from the organization, who offer a rare glimpse into their roles in preparing for the Masters.”
Featured in the documentary are Augusta National Golf Club and Masters chairman Fred Ridley and Lee Elder, who broke the Masters color barrier in 1975, as the club prepares to announce the creation of the Lee Elder scholarships. There will be a segment on the construction of the Champions Dinner hosted by Tiger Woods, along with a storyline on Cameron Champ’s experience as a first-timer at Augusta National. Also in the film are Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Gary Woodland and Ian Poulter.
“The One in November” premieres March 16 at 7 p.m., and will run a handful of times leading up to the 2021 tournament. The film was produced by Augusta National Golf Club in association with Boardwalk Pictures.
The 2021 Masters begins April 8. Dustin Johnson is the defending champ.
