One of the year’s biggest golf tournaments will kick off on Thursday, and there are several ways to stream the action live without missing a hole.

The Masters tees off at 7:45 a.m. ET on Thursday and ends Sunday with the winner putting on the traditional green jacket. While the event will air live on ESPN and CBS over the next four days, some people can’t sit in front of a television to see every shot. So, CBS, ESPN, and the PGA are making it easy to watch the tournament elsewhere.


Golf fans who have access to a browser over the next four days will be able to stream the Masters live for free from the official Masters website. Viewers can watch the broadcast simulcast, as well as individual areas on the iconic Augusta golf course, including Amen Corner and holes 15 and 16.

CBS (CBS) will stream the entire Masters broadcast daily for free on the CBS Sports website.

While neither the Masters nor CBS sites have provided detailed information about the types of devices viewers can use to stream the tournament, chances are that the streams are compatible with most updated browsers and on relatively new devices.


Augusta National, the organization that hosts the Masters, has also released mobile apps for both Android and iOS that let golf fans stream the event live to their smartphones and tablets. The apps are free and include everything from the leaderboard to live feeds of the aforementioned Amen Corner and holes 15 and 16 to the driving range. And of course, the apps will provide a broadcast simulcast, so users can watch every last shot.
