The 2018 Masters Tournament begins with the biggest names in golf coming off wins and high finishes galore, surging the buzz around the year's first major. Tiger Woods is in the conversation again, as are Justin Thomas, Phil Mickelson, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose, Jason Day, Sergio Garcia, Bubba Watson and many more top players.
The Masters TV schedule is something a lot of golf fans know by heart. It's predictable for a reason, and ESPN and CBS air five days of live golf action from Augusta National Golf Club that begins on Wednesday with the annual Par-3 Contest (which was rained out in total for the first time in 2017). ESPN has TV coverage of Thursday's first round and Friday's second round, with CBS airing coverage of Saturday's third round and Sunday's final round.
All of this coverage can be streamed online using the Masters app, Masters.com, ESPN app or CBS Sports app. However, if you prefer to watch the 2018 Masters on good, ole-fashioned TV, here are the 2018 Masters TV times and schedule.
