CBSSports.com broadcasting Tiger Woods’ Masters action


As Tiger Woods played a practice round with Fred Couples at Augusta National and prepared for his 2 p.m. press conference, just a reminder that Fort Lauderdale-based CBSSports.com (and Masters.com) will be the only place you can catch all of the Masters’ first and second rounds -- or Woods’ return to pro golf.

ESPN will be able to break into programming Thursday for Woods’ first round tee shots from the first hole. But other action will have to wait until ESPN’s 4 to 7:30 p.m. time slots on Thursday and Friday.

CBSSports.com in conjunction with Masters.com, meanwhile, has beefed up its coverage of the Masters significantly since last year. The site will feature all four days of the tournament, including more than 86 hours of live video – up more than 50 percent from the 2009 Masters.

The company has also added the Featured Group channel, which will show live video of selected pairings on holes 10 through 18. After CBS’ television coverage of action on Saturday and Sunday, CBSSports.com will show a Masters Live recap show.
