Comprehensive Coverage April 4 to 8
The Masters Tournament from Augusta National Golf Club returns to ESPN International for the twenty-fifth consecutive year with comprehensive live coverage across 25 countries and territories in the Caribbean.
ESPN’s coverage of the Masters will include the return of four-time Masters Tournament Champion, Tiger Woods and reigning 2017 Masters Tournament Champion, Sergio Garcia. Woods’ participation in this year’s tournament and his quest for a potential fifth green jacket is generating ample excitement. Number one ranked Dustin Johnson and 2015 Masters Tournament Champion Jordan Spieth are among the favorites to win the tournament this year – while four time major winner Rory McIlroy is seeking his first Masters Tournament win and a career grand slam.
“ESPN is extremely proud to continue to bring golf fans live coverage of The Masters, one of the world’s premier sporting events contested each April at the iconic August National Golf Club,” said Michael Walters, vice president of programming, ESPN International. “Now in our twenty-fifth consecutive year, we plan to broadcast and stream more hours of live coverage in Latin America & the Caribbean than ever, including Featured Groups of the Day and Amen Corner feeds, and an expansive, multiplatform news and information lineup.”
Television coverage on ESPN will include over 25 hours of live Masters content – including the Par 3 Contest on Wednesday, April 4.
