Where can I watch early coverage of the Masters?
Viewers in the UK will be able to watch the full action from 8pm on Thursday on Friday.
Featured group coverage will show the early action and two of the marquee groups morning groups for the opening two rounds.
That stream will be available from 2.15pm on the Sky Sports red button, Sky Sports Xtra and Sky Sports iPad app.

What more coverage can I see?
There is the chance to watch the players go through their paces throughout the week live on the daily On The Range show, starting on Monday, April 3 at 5pm, while there are a whole host of Masters documentaries throughout the week on Sky Sports 4.
Why can’t I watch all the Masters on TV?
The powers that be at Augusta are intent on keeping their club the most lucrative – and secretive – in the world.
Incredibly, it was not until 2002 that the men in green jackets finally decided to show all 18 holes of the leaders on Sunday.
This year, full coverage on Sky Sports on the opening two days will not begin until 8pm – although the show starts at 7pm.
It used to be worse.
For years there were not even any cameras on the front nine, so worried were the members that it would put people off actually coming to the course.
