mastersThe gods of sports and online video do not want you to get any work done. How else to explain that live coverage of the Masters will be online just days after March Madness concludes?

The famed golf competition is back starting April 9 on CBSSports.com and Masters.com, but will not be a simulcast of the television coverage. Instead there will be live streaming of the “Amen Corner” (holes 11, 12, and 13), the “15 and 16 Live” (holes 15 and 16) as well as the Masters Extra, which will cover the entire course for one hour prior to the televised coverage.

And just as the March Madness On Demand player got a makeover, so too will you be able to watch all the Masters action in a high-quality stream this year.

For golf on the go, there is also a Masters App for the iPhone (free!) that will provide all the same coverage as online plus the Par 3 Contest and player interviews from three locations.

    The Masters are giving this away for free!! Now that is what I call fufilling the promise of the mobile web.

    Great post. The best app I have downloaded.
