The 83rd Masters golf tournament hits the fairways and greens of Augusta National Golf Club next week – and we're pretty excited. The first major tournament of the year is always an event to anticipate for golf fans, and the 2019 edition is looking very hard to predict indeed. We'll tell you how to get a US Masters live stream from absolutely anywhere you are in the world.
Patrick Reed is the defending champion having last year won his first Masters tournament after making a three-foot long, par-saving putt on the final hole to win by just one stroke from countryman Rickie Fowler.
Rory McIlroy's rich vein of form has understandably made him most bookmakers' favorite – the Masters is the one major that has so far eluded the 29-year old. Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose and 2018's stand-out player Brooks Koepka will also be hoping to challenge. And then there's four-time winner Tiger Woods…
Below, you'll find our quick and easy guide for how to watch a 2019 Masters live stream online from anywhere in the world. It's extremely easy to do, even if you are away from your home country when it's on and want to tune in to your preferred coverage.

Watch all the action free at Masters.com
Your initial go-to option for streaming this year's US Masters is an absolute gimme. Simply head to Masters.com, hit the 'Watch' tab and away you go. As well as having all the live action from all four days of play – with a spotlight on featured holes and groups – it also includes footage from the practise range and as many highlights and interviews as you can handle.
If you're in the US, the alternative is to watch the coverage on ESPN and CBS, while UK audiences get to watch the concluding two rounds without those pesky ad breaks. We explain more below.
But if you try to watch the golf away from home, you may find that your usual coverage is geo-blocked. It's frustrating, but not unsurpassable.
How to watch a Masters live stream in the US
ESPN and CBS have the share of the spoils in the US, with the former taking the first two rounds (and par three contest) and CBS with rounds three and four.
Note that you will need a US IP address in order to access the above stations or otherwise you won't be able to access the content from abroad – if you want to do so, you'll have to follow our VPN guidelines above and log in with a VPN, choosing a US server location.
They aren't you're only option though, with all of the top US-based TV streaming services all providing an alternative. Each one offers a free trial to get you started and has masses of other content and channels for you to enjoy if you subscribe:

How to watch the 2019 US Masters: live stream in the UK
If you're in the UK and want to revel in the glory of the Masters over the pond, then Sky Sports is unsurprisingly the place to go – with the BBC joining the action for the last two rounds. But if you don't want to bother yourself with a Sky Sports subscription, there is another way.
Don't have Sky and don't fancy subscribing just for the golf? Well Now TV may well be a decent fit for you. It costs £14.99 for a week's worth of access. And pretty much every streaming device you can think of has a Now app.
Want to record the US Masters and watch it later? TVPlayer will also allow you to do that too. You'll need to sign up for a paid account, but the good news there is that the site offers a 14-day free trial so no payments required!
