AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - The Masters is adding an extra hour of
television coverage next year.
Augusta National chairman Billy Payne said Tuesday that ESPN's
weekday coverage will start at 3 p.m., which is an hour earlier.
The coverage ends at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday and Friday.
Payne also said that British-based Sky Sports will join the BBC
as a live broadcaster next year.
The Masters will be held April 7-10. Despite the additional hour
of coverage on the weekdays, it remains the major championship with
the most limited live TV coverage
