Preview – Golf: The Masters

US Masters

The first major golf tournament of the year begins this evening from Augusta, Georgia.

Well, actually the tournament begins in the afternoon for us, but Augusta are infamously strict in how much TV channels are allowed to cover. While the tournament begins at 13.00 for us, coverage doesn’t start until seven hours later.

Anyway, last year the coveted green jacket went to American Patrick Reed. In terms of UK hopes, Rory McIlroy came joint fifth last time, and has been desperate to win the Masters as it is the only major he has not yet won.

The Masters is on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Golf at 20.00.
