Sorry if this has been already posted. I remember being able to watch most of the tournament on TV, including the coverage of 4 specific holes. Now it only starts at 3pm? I would love watch the morning pairings too.

Sadly, TV coverage has always been relatively poor.  It was years before they showed any of the front 9 at all.

Yep, your only option is to stream it...

The "track" feature on the mobile app is really cool, even for a non-millennial like me.

Masters.com apparently has video of every shot pretty close to when it happens. That is a crazy feature. I haven't played around with it yet, though.

They have really good streaming covering, too. The featured groups today include Tiger. Stream quality is pure.

I cant see anything there, is it because I'm not watching in the US?

Yeah, I think I saw on reddit someone said it was US only. You could always try using a VPN and see if that works

Yeah, the streaming is great right now!

I'm on CBSSports and the feed is fine - probably the same as the Masters direct feed

TV broadcast for The Masters has ALWAYS been 3pm Thur-Sat and 2 on Sunday.  As long as I have been watching anyway.  The only tournament where you can literally watch from the first tee shot to the final putt is The Open... Augusta National is very stingy on giving a ton of TV time.

I wasn't able to watch the TV broadcast.  Do they replay it?  Or can I find it online?

Thanks!

Never mind, the entire 5+ hour broadcast is on masters.com.  Sweet!!

Masters.com is just the best.  I got 700mbs downloading the broadcast.  Six hours of HD video, almost 10GB, downloaded in a couple of minutes.  The coverage starts about 20 minutes before the leaders tee off, so you get all of Tiger's shots.

For those who can't or don't want to download the whole thing, note that the tracking feature on Masters.com doesn't just show diagrams of the shots in a very cool 3d viewer that is to the PGA Tour's shot tracker what Skyrim is to Pong, but it shows video of every shot.  Just click on the shot number on the diagram to get a 5-10 second clip of that shot.  It defaults to a small video, but you can expand it to full screen with a click.

Between Masters.com, The Golf Channel, and CBS I thought the coverage was the best it has been.

    • I’m putting this here.... move it if needed. Fairly early in the season. Played maybe 7-8 full rounds so far. I’m close. I shot 41 on Tuesday on the front of a course I had not played since 2016. It’s a 128/70.8. A bad double blow up hole and 2 3 putt bogeys but not disappointed when with the 3 putts I still got by with 15 putts on the front. However I blew up and shot 45 on the back. Still for a course I’ve only played maybe 3 times it’s not awful. Then my college buddy comes down Wed. We play competitive to the point of defending home turf. I kicked the shit out of him last time he came down. He drilled me 2x at his course. I go out and make 2 putt pars at 1-2 and drill a 30 foot bender at 3 to get to -1 while he is respectable +3. Anyhow take double at 4 and 8. Bird 9 and end up +3 for the side 39. Home course I can shoot anywhere from 72-78 on a mid season round. I’m happy I’m under 40 with a pair of ugly dubs. But I for 2nd straight day just fall apart on the back. Ball striking gone. My putter is the only reason I break 90 after a solid front. I guess my question is there anyone else who can’t string 18 together? Am I over thinking it this early in season? Losing focus after a solid front?   
    • It probably falls under the same reason why so many 'old school' people still believe putt for dough, drive for show: Pure stubbornness. As @brocks has mentioned Jack got it all going with his moving the goal posts and apparently at that time he just had his way. And some of the guys here just can't let that 'Major wins' thing go despite it being shown quite clearly that 15>18. And I wouldn't doubt that despite Jack himself admitting the superior fields these days he'll hold on to that 18 as long as he can as the sole determining factor of greatness. 
    • Thank for the feedback guys! Yeah, from what I could find out they were the 1986 model. Not much else out there. Foam filled with brass inserts. I will probably pull the 2 iron (that I will never even attempt to hit, lol). Taking them out for a spin in the AM. Regripped 4-pw with Pure DTX in green, in honor of the 5th green jacket! Got to go to my 1st PGA tournament ever last Sunday...what a day that was!
    • That is your body talking to you. I had the same experience some 25 years ago. I would suggest you listen to it and stay off  the weights. I do not know how old you are but  at about 50 most people start to feel the effects of the tight muscles from the heavy lifting. If you are preparing the body for golf and life, you are far better off using exercises that are dynamic in nature and build strength by creating muscle integration instead of muscle isolation. You need to keep the muscles lengthened around the back not tightened. That will only cause you more problems down the line, but I would imagine you already know that. You could also have used inversion therapy to lengthen the muscles in the back and create more separation between the vertebrae . That might not be advisable anymore. Good Luck. .
