How to Follow the 2018 Masters

By: Golfshake Editor | Tue 03 Apr 2018 | Comments


It's been labeled the most hotly anticipated Masters in recent memory, dominated by a series of startling stories coming into the week potentially setting up an all-time classic. Four-time champion Tiger Woods is back and looking to secure a staggering victory, while Rory McIlroy is seeking to complete the career Grand Slam. Old Augusta favourites Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson are on form, and it would be hard to ignore the top five in the world rankings: Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Jon Rahm, and Jordan Spieth. For once, the hype around the year's first men's major may be entirely justified. 

And there are many ways for you to follow the showpiece from home. Sky Sports and the BBC will again share the televised coverage in the UK, with radio and online services also keeping golf fans updated of each shot and moment from Augusta National throughout what is the 82nd Masters Tournament.
