Find out how to watch the tournament on TV in the UK below, including Masters 2018 dates, start times, coverage details and more.
When do the 2018 Masters start?
The first round begins on Thursday 5th April, with round two teeing off on Friday 6th April. Anyone who makes the cut will go on to the weekend’s third round, with the fourth and final round starting on Sunday 8th April.
What is the time difference between Augusta and the UK?
The UK is five hours ahead of Augusta, where the 2018 Masters are held. Play begins around 8am in the US, meaning the action tees off at around 1pm in the UK.
How can I watch the Masters on TV in the UK?
Sky Sports has full live coverage of all four days, while the BBC will also broadcast live TV coverage on Saturday and Sunday. There is also live radio coverage on BBC Radio 5 Live. Check out the timetable below to find out when the coverage starts.
The Augusta National Golf Club, responsible for hosting and running the Masters, is highly protective when it comes to the tournament – and that includes how much coverage it allows to be broadcast.
With the rise of huge sports broadcasters and fierce bidding wars for marquee events, the Masters remains one of the only major sporting events of the year which does not allow viewers at home to watch ‘every moment live’.
This year, while play begins at 1pm UK time, both Sky and the BBC will not be able to broadcast full TV coverage on the first three days until 8pm. On the final day, full coverage starts at 7pm.
If you want to catch the action before that time, you have to rely on online and red button live streams. If you’re a Sky customer, press the red button on Sky Sports Golf just after 2pm to watch live streams of featured groups and action from the practice range. Coverage of specific holes will be available later in the afternoon before the main TV broadcast begins.
The BBC Sport website will also have live feeds to choose from on the Saturday and Sunday, and red button coverage from 5.30pm each day.
The players will go out in groups of three on Thursday and Friday. If they start early on the Thursday, then they will be scheduled later on day two.
Tiger Woods starts his second round at 6.27pmUK time along with England’s Tommy Fleetwood and Australia’s Marc Leishman.
The draw below only includes the first two rounds, Thursday and Friday. After that, the field is cut: only the players who are within 10 shots of the leader will be able to play the whole weekend.
Over the weekend the playing order is based on the leaderboard, with those at the top going last. For the final two days, players play in groups of two.
