The Masters to screen on 7MATE

Later this week Adam Scott wiil try for his second green jacket and 7 MATE has it all covered.

It’s the first time the Seven Network will broadcast The Masters and adds to an impressive suite of golf tournaments on Australia’s leading network including all major Australian golf tournaments – the Masters, the Open, the PGA Championship and the Perth International.

Peter Donegan hosts 7mate’s Live coverage of The Masters. Australian major winner Ian Baker-Finch and Wayne Grady will preview all the action from Augusta at the start of each day’s play and ‘Whispering’ Pat Welsh will also be updating from the fairways of Augusta.

Of the six Aussies in the tournament, 2011 runner-up and last year’s third placegetter, Jason Day is hoping to shake off his thumb injury to again contend at Augusta.

And after playing the final round last year with Adam Scott, Warrnambool’s Marc Leishman is back to improve on his impressive fourth place in 2013.

John Senden will join the field after winning the Valspar Championship in Florida recently, while Steven Bowditch triumph this week at the Texas Open will also see him take to the Augusta fairways.

And Aussie golf fans will be watching with added interest to see if 19 year-old West Australian Oliver Goss can top the list of amateurs, or pull off a fairytale win.

In addition to Seven’s expert team, there will be commentary from a string of the biggest names on golf via the host broadcaster CBS, including iconic host Jim Nantz, three-time winner Nick Faldo and Ian Baker-Finch, who will once again be commentating from Amen Corner on the 11th and 12th holes.

7mate’s coverage tees off with the Par 3 contest on Thursday April 10, followed by the four days of the prestigious tournament.
