When do the 2018 Masters start?

The first round begins on Thursday 5th April, with round two teeing off on Friday 6th April. Anyone who makes the cut will go on to the weekend’s third round, with the fourth and final round starting on Sunday 8th April.

What is the time difference between Augusta and the UK?

The UK is five hours ahead of Augusta, where the 2018 Masters are held. Play begins around 8am in the US, meaning the action tees off at around 1pm in the UK.

How can I watch the Masters on TV in the UK?

Sky Sports has full live coverage of all four days, while the BBC will also broadcast live TV coverage on Saturday and Sunday. There will also be live radio coverage on BBC Radio 5 Live. Check out the timetable below to find out when the coverage starts.

Be warned however: strict Augusta coverage restrictions mean that, unlike most sports events, you will not be able to watch the whole tournament live.

While play begins at 1pm UK time, both Sky and the BBC will not be able to broadcast full TV coverage on the first three days until 8pm. On the final day, full coverage starts at 7pm.

If you want to catch the action before that time, you have to rely on online and red button streams. If you’re a Sky customer, press the red button on Sky Sports Golf just after 2pm to watch live streams of featured groups and action from the practice range. Coverage of specific holes will be available later in the afternoon before the main TV broadcast begins.

The BBC Sport website meanwhile will have live feeds to choose from on the Saturday and Sunday, and red button coverage from 5.30pm each day.

The Masters website also has all the live feeds available online here.

How do I watch the Masters if I don’t have Sky Sports?

BBC2 will have live TV coverage of the final two days, and BBC Radio 5 Live will be broadcasting from Augusta throughout the tournament.

You can also watch the Sky Sports coverage in full via Now TV. Purchase a Sky Sports pass from £7.99 here and enjoy exactly the same coverage as a Sky subscriber.

What are the tee times, and when is Tiger Woods playing?

The full play timetable will be published laster in the week, with details of when all the players – including Tiger Woods – will begin their rounds.

The players will go out in groups of three. If they start early on the Thursday, then they will be scheduled later on day two.

The draw only includes the first two rounds, Thursday and Friday. After that, the field is cut: only the players who are within 10 shots of the leader will be able to play the whole weekend.

After that, the playing order is based on the leaderboard, with those at the top going last. For the final two days, players play in groups of two.
