After closures and delays, fans are excited to see their favorite sports resume a (somewhat) regular schedule. Opening day for baseball was April 1, and the PGA Masters returns for its 85th tournament tomorrow, April 8. The tournament takes place at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia with 72 holes over 7,475 yards of green, and current champion Dustin Johnson wears the Masters’ jacket and will defend the title. Here’s how to watch the four-day tournament live and for free.

How to watch

ESPN and CBS will be providing full coverage of the Masters Tournament live for cable subscribers. For those only able to watch online, masters.com will be doing a simulcast of the full tournament for free. You can also go to CBSSports.com to watch live, or download the CBS Sports app to catch the highlights in real-time.

Other platforms will be streaming the tournament at a nominal cost, but you can catch the whole tournament with a free trial depending on the platform.

Paramount+ is covering the tournament and offers a free seven-day trial, which can be canceled or changed at any time—you can sign up, watch the Masters, and cancel as soon as the four days of the tournament are over.

G/O Media may get a commission

FuboTV also streams sports live and on-demand. You’ll be able to watch the Masters tournament from multiple devices, and they also offer a free seven-day trial that you can cancel any time.

When to watch

Tee off begins bright and early tomorrow at 8:00 a.m. ET with U.S. players Hudson Swafford and Michael Thompson. To see a full list of tee times, check the PGA Tour’s website here. Catch the honorary starters each morning at 7:45 a.m. ET, where greats like Robert “Lee” Elder, the first African-American to play in the Masters Tournament, will start the day with a ceremonious tee off.

You can also catch pregame coverage of your favorite players as they practice before their tee time with “On the Range” every day from noon to 2 p.m. ET on ESPN and CBS Sports. Later, you can watch interviews and highlights from the day’s game and players on “Live at the Masters” on the Golf Channel.
