The Masters is so exciting that the coverage is not limited to just television broadcasts. The online streaming provides plenty of additional looks at the course from many different angles.

While ESPN will cover the first two rounds on Thursday and Friday, this will likely be dominated by the superstars. This often gives very little attention to the field as a whole.

Fortunately, you can follow virtually whoever you want on the live stream presented by Here is a look at the online schedule and different options available on Thursday, April 11.


Amen Corner: 10:45 a.m. - 6 p.m. ET

The thing that makes the Masters such an enjoyable tournament for both golfers and fans is the majestic scenery around Augusta National Golf Club.

One of the most famous parts of the course is Amen Corner, a collection of parts of holes 11, 12 and 13. 

When a player makes it through this stretch, especially on the last day, they usually breathe easier as they look to finish the round strong.

You can watch every group go through this famous corner throughout most of the day.


Range: 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. ET

One more way to get the full experience of Augusta is to watch your favorite player before he even starts his round. 

This live stream will show the practice range as the golfers warm up prior to their tee times. You could also get some inside info on how the shots are falling if you want to place a last-minute bet.


Holes No. 15 and No. 16: 11:45 a.m. - 7 p.m. ET

After the golfers make it through Amen Corner, you can watch them shortly after as they attempt to make it through holes No. 15 and 16.

The 15th hole is one of the longest on the course, a par-five that is 530 yards long. Conversely, the 16th hole is only 170 yards long and is only a par-three.

Featured Groups: Noon - 7 p.m. ET
