Masters 2018 – Golf, Live,streaming

The Masters 2018 is here. Golf’s major championship season begins with the first round of play on Thursday at Augusta National Golf Club, the prestigious ground on the Georgia-South Carolina border that will host the tournament for the 82nd year.

Every year, this Masters 2018 is a huge deal. Some think it’s the major on the golf calendar, but even if you’re not one of those people, it’s a massive event. Along with the end of March Madness and baseball’s Opening Day, it helps officially ring in springtime in the sports world. It’s extra big this year, because Tiger Woods is playing for the first time since 2015.

Woods is one of four co-favorites entering the tournament, according to Vegas oddsmakers. He’s at 10/1 to win, the same odds given to Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, and Justin Thomas. A Woods win would be a storybook moment unlike any in recent history.

The Masters remains golf’s hardest major to watch on TV. AGNC has strict limits on how much of the tournament its broadcast partners can carry, which means most of Thursday and Friday’s rounds will only be available via live streams of particular groups and spots on the course. Here’s full information on how to watch Thursday’s round:
