Perhaps the most beloved of golf's four major tournaments, The Masters will have a very different look in 2020. Perennially held in March or April since its debut back in 1934, this year's event was pushed all the way back to November due to the coronavirus pandemic. Fans have had to wait incredibly patiently for another glimpse of the glorious Augusta National layout.

That also means the usual springtime pink, orange and yellow blooms that decorate the course will be replaced by the more muted colours of autumn (or "fall" if you're an American). Conditions will also be cooler, although officials expect the notoriously tricky greens to present the usual challenges for the world's best golfers.

One colour won't change for the 84th Masters and that is the famous green jacket handed out to the winner and claimed for a fifth time last year by Tiger Woods. The jacket, the Masters Trophy and the US$2.07 million first prize all await the winner in the 2020 tournament. This is how you can watch it live.

When is the 2020 Masters golf tournament?

Originally scheduled for April, this year's Masters is being held from 13–16 November AEDT at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia.

Watch the Masters on 9Gem

One option for watching the golf is on free-to-air television, although the Nine Network won't be showing any of the action on its main channels. Instead the tournament will be on 9Gem, with coverage from 5am–9.30am AEDT for the opening 3 rounds, even if play extends beyond 9.30am. Subscription options Kayo and Foxtel have extended coverage of the first three days of play. 9Gem will then show full coverage of the final round from 2am–7am or whatever time the tournament ends.

Live stream The Masters on Kayo Sports

Another option for watching this historic event is through Kayo Sports. If you are a new customer, you can watch all 4 rounds and much more for free using this 14-day trial. Following the trial period, the Basic subscription and 2 simultaneous streams is $25 a month. There is a Premium option for $35 a month which has an additional stream.

What sets this popular platform apart are its impressive array of special features, some tailored specifically to this week's tournament. Foxtel and Kayo are using a special camera dedicated to the famous Amen Corner, which takes in holes 11, 12 and 13 at Augusta National. Thanks to SplitView, which is only on Kayo, you can watch Amen Corner, the main coverage and the Featured Groups option at the same time as SplitView lets you watch up to four screens at once.

Kayo also has four-hour highlight packages of some famous Masters tournaments. That includes each round of Adam Scott's incredible, drought-breaking victory in 2013 and Woods' comeback triumph last year. There are also preview shows and documentaries to get you in the mood for this year's event.

Who is competing in the 2020 Masters?

As always, this year's Masters will have a stacked field, headlined by five-time champion Woods, the world's top-ranked golfer Dustin Johnson and Australia's former winner, Adam Scott. The Queenslander recovered from a bout of COVID-19 to finish tied-32nd at last week's Houston Open.

In a season when the British Open was cancelled altogether due to the pandemic, the winners of the two majors that were held this year, Bryson DeChambeau (US Open) and Collin Morikawa (PGA Championship), are also teeing it up this week.

Jason Day, who has three top-five finishes at The Masters, Marc Leishman, Cameron Smith and amateur Lukas Michel round out a small Australian contingent. There are also a host of former champions taking part, including Patrick Reed, Zach Johnson, Phil Mickelson and Fred Couples.

    Last year, The Masters was on channel 9 HD. Are they still on 9HD or is it only on Kayo?

      Hi Testok5189,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      You may still watch The Masters on Channel Nine as well as on FoxSports. However, Channel Nine only shows the opening half of each round (from 6am to 9am) and only on the digital 9Gem channel. So you can watch half The Masters each day.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni
