Only a select few will be on the grounds during Masters week. But thanks to increased broadcast coverage and presentation improvements on several mediums, golf fans will feel like they're at Augusta National.
Masters.com is again streaming 4K video during the tournament, featuring live feeds of the practice facilities, Amen Corner, the 15th and 16th holes and several featured groups. (For a reminder, 4K means more pixels on the screen at once that creates images that are crisper and capable of showing more details than standard HD.) Viewers can also catch the Honorary Starters ceremony on Thursday morning at 7:45 AM ET.
ESPN will once again handle Par-3 Contest broadcast duties, airing the competition from 3 PM ET to 5 PM on Wednesday. ESPN also will air Thursday and Friday coverage from 3 PM to 7:30 PM, with CBS taking over on the weekend starting at 3 PM on Saturday and 2:00 PM on Sunday.
AT&T/DIRECTV will be broadcasting two channels in 4KHD, an Amen Corner channel and a channel featuring the 15th and 16th holes.
Also on the TV side, CBS Sports Network will be showing action from the driving range. CBS begins this presentation on noon at Monday, with 9 AM to 11 AM on Tuesday and Wednesday and 11 AM to 1 PM throughout the tournament.
The 2017 Masters begins on April 6. Danny Willett is the defending champion.
