Masters 2019 Live

Masters 2019 : The Masters 2019 Golf Digest team of editors offer updates, insights and analysis on all the action from Augusta National. Patrick Reed returns to defend his Green Jacket as the stars of world gold descend on Georgia for The Masters.

With 54 holes in the books and 18 more to get in before inclement weather hits on Sunday afternoon, the 2019 Masters will be off and running early. Play begins at 7:30 a.m. ET with the televised broadcast window beginning at 9 a.m. and the 54-hole leaders taking the course shortly thereafter.

That means Tiger Woods, making his first appearance in a final pairing at Augusta National since 2007 after shooting a 7-under 67 on Saturday, will lineup alongside Tony Finau and solo leader Francesco Molinari at 9:20 a.m. Molinari is on top of the pack at 13 under, while Woods and Finau (who shot one of three 8-under 64s on Saturday) are two back at 11 under. There’s plenty of big names behind them also in contention for a green jacket, and Sunday will be a sprint to the finish among some of the top golfers in the world.

There will be plenty of action throughout the day at Augusta National, but with golfers playing in threesomes and starting at both the No. 1 and No. 10 tees, there’s a lot to wade through. All that’s left is to find out when Woods and your favorite golfers are playing so you can follow them throughout the day, both on CBS Sports and streaming on Masters Live. Well, we are here to answer that question for you. Here’s a look at the tee times and pairings for Sunday as the 2019 Masters continues from Augusta National. Also, here’s our complete TV coverage and live streaming guide for the Masters.The 2019 Masters, men’s professional golf’s first major of the year, will be held at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, from Thursday, April 11, 2019 (4/11/19) to Sunday, April 14, 2019 (4/14/19).

As the fourth round starts on Sunday, Tiger Woods will be two strokes behind leader Francesco Molinari, who is 13 under par. Tony Finau is tied for second place with Woods at 11 under par. Brooks Koepka is at 10 under par.This is a tradition unlike any other for the Masters — an early start Sunday with hopes of finishing ahead of thunderstorms.

Players will start in threesomes on the first and 10th tees, with the first group out at 7:30 a.m. The leaders will tee off at 9 a.m., about six hours earlier than a typical Sunday at Augusta National.

Assuming there are no delays, the final round should end about 2:30 p.m.

CBS Sports will broadcast the final round starting at 9 a.m.

Club chairman Fred Ridley says an early start gives the tournament the best chance to avoid rain and end on Sunday. The Masters has not gone to a Monday finish since Seve Ballesteros won in 1983.Due to the threat of impending weather, the Masters is moving up tee times on Sunday.

According to the Augusta National Golf Club, players will be grouped in threesomes with tee times scheduled for 7:30 a.m. off the No. 1 and No. 10 tees.

The leaders will then tee off at 9:20 a.m.

Gates are now scheduled to open at 7:15 a.m.

“The safety of everyone on our grounds is paramount,” Masters Chairman Fred Ridley said in a statement. “We also believe the earlier start will give us the best opportunity to compete the Masters on Sunday. This decision should benefit everyone — the players, our patrons, and our fans watching around the world. Given the competitiveness and drama of this year’s Tournament, we look forward to an exciting conclusion tomorrow.”It proved a decent introduction. Jack Nicklaus destroyed Greg Norman by taking just 30 shots for the last nine holes to win a record sixth Green Jacket.

The roars were loud, the colours vibrant, water everywhere. The roars got louder. The television commentary was sublime. I was hooked.

It’s taken 33 years to visit Augusta National for the first time. Here are five reasons it’s been on my bucket list.The Masters is about so much more than the four days that decide the winner.

The tournament is neatly packaged between the honorary starter’s drive on Thursday and the presentation of the Green Jacket in the Butler Cabin on Sunday.

But even before the opening tee shot, there is Tuesday’s Champions Dinner and Wednesday’s par-three contest to lighten the mood.

The menu for the Champions Dinner is created by the previous year’s winner. In 1997, England’s Nick Faldo chose tomato soup followed by fish and chips. In 2012, Charl Schwartzel requested a South African braai – a type of barbecue – with monkey gland sauce.

Defending champion Patrick Reed has opted for the safer option of steak, mac and cheese, and creamed vegetables.

“I’m definitely going to fatten everyone up,” said Reed, who has included grilled chicken and seafood “to try to please the 30-something men”.

The par-three contest has a relaxed air, with players’ partners, children and friends donning the caddies’ white boiler suits and allowed to hit tee shots and putts.

Beware the ‘par-three curse’ though – in the 58 years it has been contested, nobody has won it and then gone on to secure the Green Jacket.

All the while the patrons – always patrons, never spectators – move serenely around the course. They have to, or they risk being chucked out.

The rules are simple. No running. No shouting. No mobile phones. And if you have a Masters-approved chair, you can plonk it in your favourite place, wander off for the day and return safe in the knowledge nobody will have touched it.

The patrons are handsomely rewarded for their good behaviour. Pimento cheese sandwiches – a local favourite – set them back a little over £1, while a local beer is not much over a couple of quid.

And then there’s big John Daly. He’s becoming something of a Masters institution. The 1995 Open champion is in Augusta again this year, but not to play. He has set up his van in a parking lot just round the corner from the entrance, selling memorabilia.

Masters 2019 Live : How To Watch the Masters on Sunday ?

Masters 2019 Live : The Masters 2019 Tournament is the 83rd edition of the Masters Tournament and the first of golf’s four major championships to be held in 2019. It is being held from April 11–14 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. The Golf Digest team of editors offer updates, insights and analysis on all the action from Augusta National.

The most highly-anticipated tournament of the year is already nearly over over. The third round of the 2019 Masters is in the books, and we could have the makings of a Masters Sunday showdown for the ages. Francesco Molinari holds a two-stroke lead over Tiger Woods and Tony Finau, while Brooks Koepka, Webb Simpson and Ian Poulter are all also within striking distance.

Sunday’s final round promises to be very exciting, and unlike the previous three rounds, you’ll actually be able to watch the Masters Sunday action on TV in the morning. Why? An ominous weather forecast for Sunday afternoon resulted in the tee times being moved up by several hours. The good news? There are a few ways you can watch all the action on Masters Sunday.

Just as in previous rounds, online streaming options abound. You can watch groups play Amen Corner starting at 7:40 a.m. ET, and coverage of the 15th and 16th holes begins at 8:40 a.m. ET on Featured group coverage also begins with the first tee time at 7:30 a.m. ET.

Broadcast coverage begins at 9 a.m. ET on CBS, with the green jacket ceremony scheduled for 2 p.m. ET. You can find all the streaming options available to watch the Masters on Sunday, as well as the TV timeframe, below.
Only the Masters could keep secret the kind of massive digital media initiative they rolled out this week at the 83rd edition of their tournament. Augusta National Chairman Fred Ridley announced on Wednesday during his one annual press conference that they had been working on a feature that would make video of “virtually” every shot hit by every player available on their website and mobile app minutes after it was struck. It sounded wild in theory, and then we saw it in practice on Thursday morning during the first round.

It’s a mind-boggling media achievement and a reminder that this tournament can do almost anything it wants. Other leagues and tournaments are encumbered by immobile cruise-ship size and media rights deals that might preclude something like this. The Masters can do and share its product however it wants, renewing its one-year handshake TV deal with CBS each year.

And then there is the matter of wherewithal — we’ve seen Augusta put up a sprawling new media center and a massive merchandise palace in each of the year two years, completing both projects in less than a year and with not sign of disruption to the tournament that had been there before. Now this digital effort could change the way golf is catalogued and shown forever, although it’s hard to see anyone ever doing it as well and efficiently as the Masters has shown so far this year.

The Masters field is a trim 87 players so the tee times of some of the featured groups do not start until late in the morning, unlike a regular PGA Tour week or another major when they may be out before 8 a.m. If you want to watch the very first groups out on the course, then that Track feature on the Masters app and website will be doing the instant highlights thing all morning and afternoon.

Following that, it’s on to the featured groups stream, which has also expanded its coverage in recent years. It used to be that the stream would not go live until the featured groups were in the middle of the round, somewhere on the first nine. But now we get that stream up and running from the very first tee. That seems like an obvious and simple choice but at Augusta, limited coverage used to be a credo and every extra minute added was supposed to be a gift to us all.We have an incredible leaderboard after Day 1 of the Masters, as the year’s first major gave us a little bit of everything on Thursday. Tiger Woods shared the lead for about an hour as he surged on his back nine, only to have a hiccup at the 17th hole to finish his round at 2-under, one back at the time. Scoring was stagnant for much of the day Thursday at the Masters, until Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau and others in the afternoon wave opened things up. Sitting one back starting the day? Phil Mickelson, three-time Masters champ, who has the chance to become the oldest major champion in history with a win, which would best Julius Boros (and Jack Nicklaus in 1986, of course). But there’s a lot of golf to be played.

One of the best ways to watch the Masters each year and see every single shot on the course is Featured Groups coverage, which follows groups exclusively throughout their rounds each day. With fantastic pairings set for Sunday’s final round, the Featured Groups option will allow fans at home to see the entire round for some of the most notable golfers in the 2019 Masters field.

Tiger Woods will headline this special grouping for the third straight day. He enters Round 4 in the final pairing at Augusta National for the first time since 2007 and just two shots back of leader Francesco Molinari and tied with Tony Finau. The Molinari-Woods-Finau pairing will be the focus of coverage, but once the leaders are on the course, a second contending group will be picked up as well.
