Are you a golf fan who’s sick of Tiger Woods giving press conferences and just wants to watch some golf already? Well, your patience is about to be rewarded, as the 2010 Masters Tournament this Thursday at noon– Oh, no, you have a day job? Never fear, friend. That’s what the Internet is for.

CBSSports.com and Masters.com will be providing over 86 hours of live video from the Augusta National Golf Club, an increase of 50 percent over last year, spread out across numerous coverage options.

The Featured Group channel will track selected pairings working their way along the back nine, while separate channels will focus on the entire field as well as specific holes. (Trivia: The 11th, 12th and 13th holes at Augusta are called the Amen Corner thanks to golf writer Herbert Warren Wind, who covered more than 30 Masters tournaments and also did a little amateur golfing on his own. Now you know!).

AT&T will also be streaming live content to phones via the U-verse TV 2010 Masters app, which includes an updated leader board, news updates, a course map and video archives. In addition, the Fan Zone site will broadcast streaming Masters content.

For early adopters watching at home, the tournament will be broadcast in 3-D to each and every one of the 36 people in America who currently own a 3-D TV set, as Will Durst writes on the Masters site. However, the 3-D feed will also be available for those with 3-D-enabled computers.

We’ll update this list as more options become available!

  7. Get the Masters Online; Forgo the Azaleas, Bloody Marys and Adultery | Death By Cucumber | Great News In No Time Wednesday, April 7, 2010

    [...] NewTeeVee reports that there are two go-to sites for live golf coverage this weekend: CBSSports.com and Masters.com. These sites will offer about 86 hours of live golf from Augusta National Golf Club. That’s about a 50-percent increase from last year. But watching online also means you get more options than a traditional telecast. For example, the Featured Group Channel focuses on a specific group of golfers, while other channels focus on a certain hole or even the entire field of players. Not only do you get this comprehensive coverage, but there’s also video archives and news updates on the sites. If you’re an AT&T user, there’s the U-verse TV 2010 Masters app, too, which gives you a live scoreboard, updates, a course map and more on your cell phone. For those of you lucky enough to be home during the tournament, the Masters will be broadcast in 3-D on your television or computer (if you have the appropriate hardware). ESPN will air the first two rounds, and CBS will air the last two rounds — both, of course, in high definition. [...]
