CBS to Offer Masters Golf Online

Mar 1, 2007  •  Post A Comment

CBS will put an extra hour per day of coverage of the Masters golf tournament online to drive Web traffic to CBSSportsLine.com.

The live streaming coverage will start one hour before television coverage begins on USA Network on April 5 and 6, and on CBS on April 7 and 8.

The new “Masters Extra” programming builds on the “Amen Corner Live” feature at CBS SportsLine, which will show replays of the golfers navigating the legendary 11th, 12th and 13th holes at Augusta National Golf Club. In 2006, CBS SportsLine served 3.4 million video streams from Amen Corner.

“Masters Extra” will be produced by CBS Sports and use the network’s regular lineup of announcers, who will cover the entire field as they play the earlier holes on the course.
