Sky has bolstered its analysis team for this week's 2017 Masters golf tournament. 2018 Ryder Cup captain Thomas Bjorn and three-time Major winner Padraig Harrington are now on board to offer their expert insight.

Bjorn, a 21-time winner on tour, will be on hand on Thursday and Friday, while Harrington will offer analysis over the weekend, when the winner of the iconic green jacket is decided.

The team also includes 2014 Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley and regular contributor Butch Harmon.

Live coverage of the competition started on Monday. The tournament proper starts on Thursday at 7pm.

"I'm extremely excited to have two such respected golfing personalities on the team," said Jason Wessely, head of golf at Sky Sports. "Their insight and opinion will add yet another level to our Masters coverage, which includes new programming and features throughout the week."

Programming includes 'Masters Breakfast' (which reviews the previous evening's action), and live coverage of featured groups, Amen Corner and holes 15 and 16.

Sky Sports is also the only broadcaster to use Pro-Tracer (a small camera that follows the arc of the ball's flight) with enhanced ball flight apex, plus 360-degree hole analysis.
