UPDATED: CBS Sports issued their yearly press release yesterday touting all their golf coverage for the coming season. In it, they contained this interesting nugget about The Masters:
The Masters, the most renowned golf tournament and the longest-running sports event on CBS Sports will be showcased for the 58th consecutive year from Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga. Coverage includes a pair of 15-minute highlight shows recounting early-round action on Thursday, April 11 and Friday, April 12 (11:35-11:50 PM, ET, both nights). Live coverage of the third round will be broadcast on Saturday, April 13 (3:00-7:00 PM, ET) and live 18-hole final-round coverage will be presented on Sunday, April 14 (2:00-7:00 PM, ET).
The news here is this: Saturday’s coverage is listed as 3-7pm ET. I have confirmed through CBS Sports spokeswoman Jennifer Sabatelle that that is indeed correct, so golfers have gotten what they wanted: more coverage of The Masters via an additional 30 minutes of coverage on Saturday (it was previously 3:30-7pm ET).
