The men’s major golf season begins this month at The Masters, with round-the-clock coverage from Augusta National exclusively live on Sky Sports.
The tournament is back in its traditional spot in the schedule, having moved to November last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, with world No 1 Dustin Johnson returning as defending champion after winning the Green Jacket in record-breaking fashion in 2020.
Sky Sports will show nine consecutive days of live coverage from Augusta National, including all four tournaments rounds from April 8-11, with plenty of bonus programming and additional action available throughout the week.
Global broadcast restrictions mean that full live coverage will begin from 7.30pm over the first two days, 8pm on Saturday and 7pm on Sunday – all on Sky Sports The Masters – although there will be lots of live action to enjoy before then across all four rounds.
The Featured Groups option is one of several extra feeds available to watch throughout the tournament, with those marquee players available from 2pm over the first two days on Sky Sports The Masters and then via the red button throughout the weekend.
You can follow players’ progress through Amen Corner – Augusta’s signature three-hole stretch – on the red button or for free via the Sky Sports website and the Sky Sports YouTube channel, while there’s an extra stream on the red button covering the fourth, fifth and sixth holes.
The 15th and 16th hole feed is also available for all four days, while the On The Range show is available on the red button on Thursday and Friday and then on the main channel for the final two rounds.

AND THERE’S MORE…
Live coverage starts even earlier in 2021, with the final round of the Augusta National Women’s Amateur and the traditional Drive, Chip and Putt both live on Sky Sports Golf during Easter Weekend.
The entire schedule during tournament week will be dedicated to the opening men’s major of the year, with special documentaries and highlights from the Masters archives, plus live preview from Monday to Wednesday to bring you the latest news and interviews from Augusta.
There will be two-hour highlights shown each morning to look back at the previous day’s play, while the final round will be repeated – in full – the day after the Green Jacket has been awarded.
Other special Masters programming will be available to download via Sky Sports On Demand, while Sky Q customers can catch up with clips, highlights and entertaining features.
Live text commentary from first tee to last will be available on skysports.com and Sky Sports’ mobile apps, with live clips available via Sky Sports’ Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.
