How to stream The Masters 2016 using the Masters app

Of the four majors, The Masters offers the most streaming options for fans around the watch to keep up with what's happening at Augusta National Golf Club.

That pioneering attitude toward streaming and digital coverage continues in 2016 with the Masters app for Android and Apple (iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch) devices. The app will offer constant news updates and access to video streams, including the television broadcasts of The Masters 2016, as well streaming coverage from the Augusta National practice range, Amen Corner, holes 15 and 16, as well Featured Groups coverage, which, for the first time, will offer combined 18-hole coverage of two concurrent groups during three waves each day.
