How to watch The Masters golf in the UK – what time does Tiger tee off?

How to watch The Masters golf in the UK this weekend? One of the most iconic tournaments in golf has just teed off. Here’s how to watch The Masters in the UK.

Four days of intense competition awaits in one of the landmark events on the sporting calendar. It’s the first major of the 2022 golf season, at one of the most famous courses in the world. And, he’s back. What’s not to love about The Masters at the Augusta National this weekend?

As we mentioned in the intro, Tiger Woods is back in action for the first time in a pro tournament since a car accident in February 2021 left him with serious leg injuries. He’s seeking a 6th Masters title, and the first since his emotional win in 2019.

Woods said he wouldn’t enter if he didn’t think he could win another Green Jacket, and you’d have to be crazy to bet against him. The favourites this weekend include modern greats like John Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas and Dustin Johnson. You can never count out the likes of Jordan Spieth, Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka either.

It’s going to be an enthralling four rounds at Augusta. Here’s how to watch tonight on Sky Sports
