April Madness, anyone? Okay, we might have to work on our sports metaphors, but for golf fans, things are only just getting started with the 2013 Masters Tournament. It’s the first of the four annual major golf championships, and it’s going to unfold this week at the prestigious Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia.
Unfortunately, much of the action will happen while most of us are at the office. Luckily, key events will once again be live streamed online: CBSSports.com and Masters.com will stream more than 90 hours live from the competition, with action unfolding on a total of four live channels, and ESPN will stream parts of the Masters online as well.
- Streaming on CBSSports.com and Masters.com will start Monday at noon E.T. (9 a.m. PT), with daily live streams of key events continuing until Sunday, 4/14. Golf fans can find a complete schedule of the daily events on Masters.com.
- iPad (S AAPL) users will be able to tune through the official Masters Tournament iPad app.
- iPhone users get the same experience on a slightly smaller screen through the official iPhone app.
- Android users can download the official Masters Tournament Android app on Google Play.
- ESPN will stream live coverage of the Par 3 Contest, First Round and Second Round Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, respectively. Live streams will begin at 3 p.m. ET, and are available both through on ESPN3 as well as WatchESPN on the web as well as mobile apps and the Xbox 360. However, these services aren’t available to everyone; ESPN3 is only available through participating ISPs, while WatchESPN requires a pay TV account with a participating provider. Check ESPN’s website for details.
