Sky Sports picks up exclusive rights to show live coverage of the Masters golf

BBC loses out as all four days from the Augusta National are set to be shown by Sky

Sky Sports will become the exclusive live broadcaster of the Masters golf tournament in the UK after securing a new deal that starts in 2020.

All four days of tournament action from the Augusta National in April (9-12) will be broadcast live on Sky Sports’ dedicated golf channel, with coverage also on Sky Sports News and Sky Sports’ social and digital platforms.

Previously coverage was shared with the BBC.

Sky Sports managing director Rob Webster said: “The Masters has provided some spectacular moments on Sky Sports – not least Tiger Woods’ unforgettable comeback this year – and we look forward to broadcasting many more at one of the most iconic global sporting events.

“We are proud of our 10-year association with Augusta National, and our golf team does a great job sharing the magic of the Masters with our viewers.”

Sky Sports first broadcast The Masters in 2011.
