While network television coverage of the Masters doesn't begin until 3pm ET on Thursday and Friday, Masters.com has several channels of excellent Masters action online. The problem? The screen on your phone or computer isn't quite as big as your beautiful flat-screen TV.
If you have Google's beautifully simple $35 dongle already set up on a bigger screen, then watching the Masters app or Masters.com on your TV is a breeze.
You can do this from your Android device with a Chromecast:
- Turn on your Google Chromecast and make sure it's connected to your phone.
- On your Android device, download, install and open the Google Cast app.
- At the top of the screen, hit the hamburger/3-bar menu in the search box.
- From the menu that flies in from the left, select Cast Screen/Audio.
- On the screen that loads, hit Cast Screen/Audio, confirm the Chromecast you're sending to, then exit the app.
- Fire up the Masters app, open up a stream and enjoy!
If you're doing this from your desktop or another computer:
- Install Google Chrome if you don't already have it.
- Go to the Google Chrome Web Store and install the Google Cast extension. It'll create a Chromecast button to the right of the address bar in any tab you open.
- Go to Masters.com and click the Live button at the top of the page to open the streaming channels. Pick the one you want to watch.
- Click the Chromcast button on that tab and connect to the dongle in your TV or larger monitor.
- Click the full-screen button in the Masters.com streaming player to have the biggest view of the action possible on your computer.
