One qualm that golf fans have every year is the struggle to watch the Masters, especially early on during the tournament, as TV coverage is limited. But the official website has become an excellent place to stream the Masters and has coverage of featured groups and holes when there is no coverage on television.
Masters TV schedule
CBS has been the official TV broadcaster of the Masters every year since 1956 and continues to televise Rounds 3 and 4. ESPN holds the television rights to Rounds 1 and 2. The exact times for the 2022 TV schedule will be released close to the event.
The Masters is played annually at hallowed Augusta National in Augusta, Ga. One of the most famous courses in the World, Augusta is a 7,768-yard par-72, featuring Ryegrass fairways and Bentgrass greens.
The private course was established in 1933 and began hosting the Masters the following year. It also began hosting the National Women's Amateur in 2019.
For the fourth straight year, the Masters paid out from an $11.5 million purse. The champion, Hideki Matsuyama, took home $2,070,000. Will Zalatoris pocketed $1,242,000 for his runner-up finish.
The coveted Green Jacket
Money isn't the only thing that golfers play for at Augusta. There's also the coveted Masters Green Jacket. This is a tradition that started in 1937 when all Augusta National members wore the jackets at the tournament to make them stand out from the public. It wasn't until 1949 that the winners began receiving the Green Jacket — and the first one was awarded to Sam Snead.
