Get your Masters fix on TV this week

CBS, ESPN and Golf Channel will all televise memorable Masters moments.
Tiger Woods bore us back into the past at the 2019 Masters.

Masters week just won't be the same in 2020.

The annual right of passage into spring has been postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic. That's the bad news. The good news is you can still get your Masters fix.

Three networks - CBS, Golf Channel and ESPN - will be reliving many of the greatest moments from Augusta National and The Masters.

ESPN will televise five memorable final rounds Wednesday through Friday, starting at 3 p.m. ET Wednesday (1986); 2 p.m. ET (2012) and 7:30 p.m. ET (1997) Thursday; and noon ET (2013) and 6 p.m. ET (2005) Friday. On the weekend, CBS picks up the action with three final rounds: 1:30-2:30 ET (1975) and 2:30-6 p.m. ET (2004) Saturday and 12:30-6 p.m. ET Sunday (2019). You might recognize the champions a few of these years - Jack Nicklaus in 1986, Phil Mickelson in 2004 and, of course, Tiger Woods, last year.

Golf Channel's week-long schedule will be complementary to the tournament action.

You can relive 2019 by watching Golf Central Live From The Masters recapping the third round at 7 p.m. ET Saturday. The pregame show before the final round will air at 11:30 a.m. Sunday, leading into the final round coverage on CBS, and at 6 p.m. ET, come back to Golf Channel for the recap of one of the best days in modern golf history.

Celebrating The Masters, a collection of past critically acclaimed GOLF Films Shorts originally produced for Golf Central Live From The Masters, will air at 8 p.m. ET Monday and Tuesday and following encore final round Masters telecasts airing on ESPN and CBS from Wednesday through Saturday with corresponding Masters champion-winning press conferences.

Golf Channel will air GOLF Films featuring Masters champions, including Arnie, Jack and Hogan, and several hours of Masters highlights throughout the week, including Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Nick Faldo, Gary Player, Tom Watson, Billy Casper, Larry Mize, Seve Ballesteros and Bob Goalby.

Feherty will dip into its archives for episodes with green jacket winners airing Wednesday through Friday, featuring Nicklaus, Faldo, Watson, Fred Couples, Raymond Floyd, Bernhard Langer, Ben Crenshaw, Mickelson, Mark O'Meara, Fuzzy Zoeller, Jordan Spieth, Zach Johnson and Jackie Burke Jr.

Five editions of the Drive, Chip and Putt National Finals will also air beginning at 7 a.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

Got the DVR set for the 86 replay and 75. Most forget that you usually only saw the back nine back then on TV. The 2019 Masters was the closest to the feeling that I Had in 86 watching Jack. Can’t wait to watch both again!! Be safe

I am a huge fan of Tom Watson, Arnold Palmer, who I had the opportunity to meet many years ago, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Phil Mickelson, so I would enjoy watching episodes or Masters highlights of any of those golfers.
