In addition to its comprehensive, almost commercial-free TV coverage, the Masters golf tournament announced Wednesday that it will have apps for Android-based smartphones and tablets for online viewing of this year’s tournament. Though the golf that counts won’t start until next Thursday, April 5, Masters coverage this year begins next Monday with a new live program called “On the Range” which will air live on

In past years the Masters has had only apps for Apple iPhones and iPads, and charged $1.99 for a premium iPad app; this year, all apps are free and can be downloaded from the links on this page.

Live television coverage of the event this year starts on Wednesday April 4 with some coverage of the famed par 3 contest, aired from 3 p.m to 5 p.m. Eastern time on ESPN. ESPN will also broadcast live golf coverage from 3 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 5 and Friday, April 6. On the weekend TV coverage shifts to CBS, from 3:30 p.m. to 7 pm on Saturday, April 7 and from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday, April 8 (all times Eastern).

Real golf nuts will probably watch both on TV and online, as the Masters once again will outdo all other sports events with seven different live feeds to choose from, including cameras focused on the famous “Amen Corner” stretch of holes 11, 12 and 13. There will also be live 3D streaming video from the par 3 contest as well as during competition, along with more scores, stats, highlights and Masters features than you will probably have time to consume. Stay tuned here to MSR for more ways to follow the Masters as we lead up to the big week.
