masters

If you’re into golf, you probably already know what’s going on this weekend. If you’re not, let us enlighten you. This weekend — Thursday to Sunday — is The Masters Tournament, an invitational golf tournament that’s been held since 1934 at the private Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. While there are those lucky enough to attend in person, the rest of us can solace ourselves by viewing the televised version. Here are five places to watch The Masters while imagining you’re right on the green.
