When is the Masters 2016 live on TV?

Live coverage begins Day 1 on Sky Sports 1 and 4 this Thursday from 7pm until 12:30am.

Day 2: Friday 7pm-12:30am on Sky Sports 1 and 4.

Day 3: Saturday 7pm-12:30am on Sky Sports 4 and from 8pm Sly Sports 1.

Day 4 (final round): Sunday 6pm-12:30am on Sky Sports 4 and from 6:30pm Sky Sports 1.

Weirdly for a 21st century sporting event, Augusta National Golf Club have very strict limitations on the amount of golf that can be shown live, which means Sky won’t be able to bring you every ball hit.

For example, on the first day the first pairing tee off at 1:20pm, but live coverage doesn’t start until 7pm. Annoying, right?


Can I watch if I don’t have Sky Sports?

Yes, Day 1 highlights will be on BBC2 on Friday 8th April from 6:30pm-7:30pm.

Day 2 highlights: Saturday 1:30pm-2:30pm on BBC2

Day 3 live: Saturday 7:30pm-midnight BBC2

Day 4 (final round) live: Sunday 6:30pm-midnight BBC2
