I am fortunate enough to be invited to the final round Sunday at this years Master's...it will be my second time as I went in 2009...I feel very lucky to have gone once much less twice.  However, I will be driving all day Saturday to get there and was wondering what AM radio station has the Masters live in Georgia so i can listen to Saturday's round on my way there...any help would be appreciated...I really need to get Xm radio in my car

I too am curious about radio coverage as I have to drive on Sunday for a work travel.  Gonna research it and get back to this thread. Hopefully Sirius has it on one of their sports channels.  Stay tuned (pun intended).........

.......FWIW, Sirius XM is covering it live everyday Thursday through Saturday.  XM channel 146 and Sirius channel 209.

CBS Sports is covering the prime time feeds on TV, so maybe their radio affiliates will have live coverage?

Thanks but I do not have Sirrus...I am sure Sirrus will be covering it on the PGA Tour station...I am hoping someone can give me the AM station as I remember listening to it back in 2009 driving over there from Atllanta on Saturday???  I guess I can do a search but maybe someone can help...thanks.

Good point.  And I have to thank you for starting this thread!  I have Sirius but never realized that the PGA channel was on the 'plus XM' tier.  If not for this thread and checking out exactly which channels I have (and don't have), I would've missed the final round this coming Sunday!!  I added the 'plus XM' for a whopping 2 bucks a month today.  Cheap insurance to be able to keep track of the final round this Sunday.

Thank you, i-Guy.

Very cool and glad this helped you out...I had XM on my last car and basically lived on the PGA Tour station when driving to work and back each day...I have owned this car about 3 months now and miss it bad...I keep telling my wife I am going to get XM in this car but juist have not gotten around to it...this may have been the push I need...enjoy the Masters !

Y'know, I got to thinking about this (I know, I know - a dangerous thing....).

But I have T-mobile cellular, which means I have unlimited tethering available at no extra charge.  Technologically, and theoretically speaking, I COULD tether my laptop through my cell phone and WATCH The Masters final round live as I'm tooling down the freeway at 70 MPH.

Gents any other ways you know of. I'm in Okinawa Japan and AFN (Armed Forces Network) is going to only show Sunday's final.

    • Driver does seem inadequate since it's got a big head on it but a 3 iron for those who carry would do just fine I imagine. Better yet, just get a cattle prod. It can fit in the bag and doesn't count against you as a club. A lil ol zap to the zipper fly area ought to adjust a persons attitude right quick. 
    • Where is the hole in your game?  Do you struggle close to the green?  Then look at lob wedge.  If you find yourself always needing a 200 yard club then go for a wood or driving iron. I would suggest since you already mentioned you don't hit your hybrid so well replacing it as well.  I don't hit hybrids myself, but there are many different types of hybrids from fat sole driving irons to short shaft woods.  A true hybrid will go a lot farther than an iron of the same loft making a 5 hybrid get into you 3 iron range.  If you go this route I would suggest a 2 and 4 hybrid to cover the gap between driver and irons. My personal preference is toward big fairway woods.  Most people will carry at least a 3 wood.  Lots of pros are using a strong 3 wood, whether it is called a 2 wood, 3+, or mini driver, these guys are using 11 to 14 degree woods with lots of club head speed to get 300 yards out of their fairway wood.  But with slower swings that most amateurs have they should be using a 12 to 14 degree driver meaning they should be using more loft on their fairway wood as well.  To go this route you might want to look at a 4 wood and 7 wood setup.  A 7 wood should be around the same yardage as a 3 hybrid. One last suggestion.  Find a 2nd hand store and look at some older model clubs.  You might just run across a 1 iron for less than $10.  For that price you could grab a hand full of long irons, hybrids, and woods that you can then hit the driving range and find what works for you.  
    • So IMO, if there are easier options to hit that can produce similar results, why play blades?  I had a set of Titleist 710 Cavity Backs and sold them for blades. Simply because they looked cool, and "all good golfers play blades". Well, I wasnt as good a ball striker that I thought I was. I now play AP2's and my handicap is as low as its ever been. For guys like Jordan Spieth and Luke Donald in your example, if they hit it pure most of the time, why risk that 1% where you dont pure it and the blade iron leaves you 15 yards short of your target and in a creek/hazard.  The technology in irons today is incredible for hitting high shots while still being able to work the ball plenty. Im not knocking anyone who plays blades, because that is impressive. It all comes down to preference.
    • KFC fried chicken scented sunscreen.   
    • Exactly, it comes up a lot in some of those "senior" golf tip sections on TV and in Magazines. We don't have those twist-o-flex spines anymore like we did in our 20's, so a little head start helps. But I think ANYONE can use it to help rotation. We may THINK we get around a lot, but sadly if you saw yourself on video... not so much. Then I wouldn't do it with the long irons. :^)  But seriously, folks... I run into this as well and it's my hands... I will tend to flip and steer the club trying to get the perfect ball flight. Hands get ahead and it's pulled or hooked. REALLY trying to keep my head behind the ball and WATCH the club hit the ball helps a bit, though. Good Luck.
