The most wonderful time of the golf season is here, even if it has come seven months later than we originally expected. The 2020 Masters is underway, and this year’s event is yet another star-studded affair at Augusta National Golf Club with a loaded 92-man field featuring most of the best golfers in the world.
Tiger Woods is defending his fifth green jacket, and he’s off to a hot start at 4 under through his first 18 holes. Rory McIlroy leads the pack looking to breakthrough at Augusta National, but Bryson DeChambeau entered as the favorite in the field. Let’s just say that DeChambeau did not start as hot as Tiger did. Jon Rahm looks to continue his 2020 surge, and there’s also a lot of steam behind Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Xander Schauffele and Brooks Koepka as well.
While attending the Masters is a dream for many, simply being able to watch golf on the grandest stage of them all is an incredible treat each year. We here at CBS Sports are thrilled to bring you wall-to-wall coverage of the Masters throughout this week with a variety of ways for you to watch your favorite golfers play one of the most exciting courses in the world.
With Round 1 unable to be completed Thursday due to inclement weather, it will wrap up beginning at 7:30 a.m. ET on Friday. It is anticipated that Round 2 play will begin shortly thereafter at 9:35 a.m., and the question is whether that will be completed so the cut can be decided before the traditional Moving Day.
Enough talking about it. Here’s how you can watch as much Masters as possible throughout the week. Be sure to stick with CBS Sports for live coverage throughout and download the CBS Sports App to watch Masters Live on your mobile device.
