The Masters 2021 – Live TV Coverage on Sky Sports, Highlights on BBC

The men’s first major golf tournament of the year takes place this week (8-11th April) as the Masters are held at Augusta National.

All four days of the event will be shown exclusively live on Sky Sports with nightly highlights on the BBC.

The tournament is back in its traditional spot in the schedule, having moved to November last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The world No 1 Dustin Johnson returns as the defending champion after winning the Green Jacket in record-breaking fashion in 2020.

Full live coverage will begin from 7.30pm over the first two days, 8.00pm on Saturday and 7.00pm on Sunday – all on Sky Sports The Masters.

The Featured Groups option is one of several extra feeds available to watch throughout the tournament, with those marquee players available from 2pm over the first two days on Sky Sports The Masters and then via the red button throughout the weekend.

The 15th and 16th hole feed is also available for all four days.

There will be two-hour highlights shown each morning to look back at the previous day’s play, while the final round will be repeated – in full – the day after the Green Jacket has been awarded.

Former European Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley will be apart of Sky Sports expert team which also includes coach Butch Harmon and former PGA champion Rich Beem, with the three pundits joining Ewen Murray and Robert Lee in the commentary box.

The BBC will show round one highlights on Friday 9th at 12.30am-2.00am and 3.15pm-4.45pm on BBC Two. Round two on Saturday 10th at 12.50am-2.20am and 10.30am-12.00pm on BBC Two. Round three highlights will air on Sunday 11th at 12.05am-1.30am and 11.30am-1.00pm on BBC Two. The fourth and final round highlights will air on Monday 12th from 12.00am-2.00am and 2.30pm-4.30pm also on BBC Two.

Eilidh Barbour will front the BBC’s highlights in the company of Andrew Cotter, Ken Brown, Iona Stephen, Mark James and Iain Carter.
