The Masters is coming 6-9th April 2017
In its 81st year, the four-day U.S. Masters Tournament will once again take place at the Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia.
Some love the Masters because of its incredible standard of play. Some tune in just for the beauty of Augusta. Either way, a VPN can give you a great view. Here’s how you can stream.
Watch the weekend live on BBC iPlayer (UK)
There are a few different broadcasters this year, but the BBC’s broadcast is usually the most popular.
The free BBC iPlayer streaming service has live streaming coverage of the final two days of the tournament.
Here’s how to watch the golf Masters Tournament 2016 on BBC iPlayer:
- Get an ExpressVPN account and install the app on your preferred device.
- Connect to a UK ExpressVPN server.
- The Masters will most likely be on BBC Two, so go to www.bbc.co.uk/bbctwo to start watching. You don’t even have to sign in!
Watch the Masters on CBS or the official website (USA)
As always, the U.S. has its own broadcasters too. CBS has been televising the U.S. Masters for over 60 years, but the channel now only shows the weekend’s action. You can also check out the live coverage on the official Masters site.
In 2016, live tournament play will air from 3pm to 7pm U.S. Eastern Time on the Saturday and from 2pm to 7pm on the Sunday.
Here’s how to watch the Masters outside the U.S. with a VPN:
- Sign up for ExpressVPN and install the app on your favorite device.
- Connect to an ExpressVPN server in the USA. There are more than 20 to choose from!
- Go to www.cbssports.com/stream and watch the Masters 2016 live. Alternatively, you can go to www.masters.com/en_US/watch/index.html. You may need to register with a U.S. address, but it’s free.
Masters Tournament 2016 schedule:
The four-day tournament begins Thursday 6th April 2017 and finishes Sunday 9th April. First tee times are 8am U.S. Eastern Time, but most TV stations only cover the last 4-5 hours of each day.
The winner’s ceremony is set for 7pm on Sunday.
Who’s getting that green jacket?
You can’t predict the Masters, but let’s try anyway.
It’s the only major Rory McIlroy hasn’t won yet, but he’s not the force he was. Rising star Jason Day scored his first major at the 2015 U.S. PGA, so he’s a good bet. But ExpressVPN’s pick would be Jordan Spieth – he won it last year and he’s still in great form.
