Sky Sports has retained live coverage of the Masters from Augusta National after signing a new TV deal with the tournament organisers.

The broadcaster - which airs all four days' action from the golf Major - was first awarded the television rights in 2011.

Sky Sports remains the only UK television provider to show live coverage of rounds one and two from the Masters - one of the world's most popular and prestigious tournaments.

It shares live coverage of days three and four with free-to-air broadcaster the BBC.

Under the new deal, Sky Sports will also show live coverage of the Par 3 Contest, held every year on the Wednesday of Masters week.

Viewers will have access to additional content on the internet and through the red button, plus highlights on 'Masters Breakfast'.

Barney Francis, Managing Director of Sky Sports, said the broadcaster is "delighted" to extend its partnership with Augusta National. 

"The Masters is more than a Major, it is a magical tournament played on a magnificent golf course, producing incredible golf every year," he stated.

"Only on Sky Sports can viewers enjoy all four days live, plus the annual Par 3 Contest with extra coverage across a variety of platforms."

Mr Francis said Sky looks forward to continuing its coverage of the Masters and providing the exposure deserved by this "unique" golf event.

Bubba Watson won the 2014 Masters - his second win in three years - after carding a final round 69 to win by three shots.

The unorthodox left-hander held off the challenge of Jordan Spieth and Jonas Blixt to claim the famous Green Jacket.
