What channel is The Masters on? TV details for final day at Augusta

The main coverage of the season’s opening major from Augusta National will once again be on Sky Sports, with highlights on the BBC not starting until midnight on all four days.

Ewen Murray and Andrew Coltart are part of a Sky Sports Golf team providing the channel’s commentary on the event’s 86th edition.

On each day, coverage will start at 2pm with ‘Featured Groups LIVE’ and one of those in Thursday’s opening round includes Tiger Woods.

The early spotlight will be on new world No 1 Scottie Scheffler as well in a group that also includes 2013 champion Adam Scott.
