You know it's officially Spring when the new version of the Masters Tournament app shows up in Google Play and the Apple App Store. And the 2018 edition is the best Masters app yet.
Not only can you download the app and watch the Masters broadcasts from ESPN and CBS, but you can also watch three live streams from Amen Corner and Holes 15 and 16, as well featured groups.
Even better this year is the integration with IBM's Watson technology. After creating an account for the app, users will have access to the new My Reel feature, which will deliver personalized highlights as the app learns which players you like and focus on most. Watson evaluates hundreds or thousands of highlights based on patron and announcer reaction, as well player gestures of intensity and emotion to prioritize what app users see.
Equally helpful is the app recognizes when a fan stops using the app, so it delivers the My Reel highlight package in linear time, letting a fan pick back up where they left and avoiding videos and news which could spoil what happened since they were last on the app.
Of course, you get all of the news and features from the on-site Masters reporters, and you can follow the live leaderboard.
If you don't have the Masters app, then you're not getting fully into the tournament, so find it in your platform's app store now.
