What is the Masters?

The Masters was established in 1934. It's held in Augusta, Georgia every year, with the winner getting a prize of over $1 million and a green jacket. This makes it an official money event on the PGA Tour, the Japan Golf Tour and the European Tour.

The Masters is invitational, so there are fewer competitors than in other golf championships.

The current champion is Sergio Garcia, but Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth are tied for the tournament's record score and Jack Nicklaus holds the most Masters wins.

When is this year's US Masters?

The 2017 US Masters aired between April 6th and 9th. Next year's will be between April 2nd and 8th.

How can I watch the US Masters?
