Remarkably, none of the top 10 ranked players in the world have ever won the Masters including top contenders Justin Rose, Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy.

World No.12 and four-time Masters champion Tiger Woods is the highest ranked player to win the competition though his last victory came in 2005.

Fans around the world will be desperate to tune in to soak up the action, but how can you watch the tournament in the UK?

RadioTimes.com has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch the Masters on TV and online.

When is the 2019 Masters?

The 2019 Masters tournament starts on Thursday 11th April and runs until Sunday 14th April.

The four-day event will see the biggest names in golf compete for the prestigious title.

Where is the 2019 Masters held?

The Masters is held at the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, USA.

The UK is five hours ahead of Augusta, meaning much of the action will take place in the evening for British fans.

Why can’t I watch all of the Masters live?

Tournament officials at the Augusta National Golf Club limit TV coverage over fears that too much live broadcasting would cut attendance figures at the course.

Over the years, more of the tournament has become available for fans at home, with mainly the opening days affected by the TV blackout as opposed to the weekend drama.

The official Masters website also exclusively airs coverage from several parts of the course including Hole 16 and Amen Corner.
