'working' seems a very genorous word for your contribution to debenhams today!

where is the masters coverage, only showing 3 hours per day for such a big tournament is disgraceful. I know that you can watch on BBCi but that is only Amen Corner which consists of just 3 holes. I hope the BBC lose the rights to Sky soon so we can watch all the tournament.

Massive day for Rose. A good start is essential to give him the self belief. If he gets 1 under after 6 what price a pillar to post victory?
PS I've got a 5 e/w double going on Rose (only 25/1) from Ogilvy at 33/1
Fingers crossed

Why do some peope just not understand!

The BBC are showing every second of coverage that they can. Augusta National Golf Club let very little be shown of the tournament. The BBC and other stations cannot show any more than they do. I'm sure that if the BBC could, they would show coverage nearly all day, like they do for The Open

If Sky were to get the UK rights instead of the BBC, it'd be exactly the same.


Can people please understand this!

kingrolloll - Rose never seems to get of to a good start here, but he always seems to be able to dig in and pull things back. If he is level going through nine that will do me, and then perhaps pick up a couple on the back nine.

It's important for everyone to realise that Augusta National is run by idiots.

OMG you're joking no? that's ridiculous. So if the winning score comes from a blinding early round we won't actually see any of it! GREAT! FANTASTIC! SUPER! (now that's sarcasm)

I give the TV Coverage of the Early Holes a Big Fat Thumbs UP!

Hoping the Gym will have some coverage of the Golf on 1 of the 4 screens they have set up as Im heading down there after work and I would like to be kept updated on Rose's progress.

That's unlikely - the ones with any sort of chance will still be out there by the time we start watching. On Sunday, we probs won't miss much actual action.

Presume we're in for another Tiger Woods day from whoever is providing coverage - will we be missing vital shots from other competitors (like Justin Rose's bunker shot on 18 yesterday) while we watch a resume of Tiger's scowls throughout the day?

I heard Snedeker went to the bath twice before this tournament and ate a bacon sandwich.

That is all the information I can provide.

Snedeker did win an PGA event last year. Can't remember what, though.

why is the coverage of this masters so poor? If it was on sky or santanta we would certainly be seeing a lot more action, as opposed to holes 11-13 only. Until far later at night..

Me too! I feel like a superstar! Twice on the main live commentary and once (which is still there) on the golfing main page with my quote praying rose keeps his performance up for the next three days.

Considering Heathrow is at least a 2 hour drive away from me (Bristol would be nearer!) and it would take a good 8 hours flight to reach Orange County it would be pointless as your working day would be over.

However if you and your company is willing to pay the bill I am more than happy to back my bags, get in my car and fly across the pond :)

Well the weather sounds a damn sight better over there than here for the weekend.

Going to be raining here so I think the golf isn't going to be going ahead, neither the polishing and cleaning of the car.

The Masters committe limit the amount of coverage that can be shown.Even with the upside of losing Lineker, could anyone take the interminable adverts we'd get with Sky.
