The Masters 2019 Live

The Masters Live Stream: Stars from the past decade like Jason Day and Brooks Koepka are at or near the top of the leaderboard after two rounds, but so are Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson

Woods is right behind the leaders at six-under after shooting a 68 on Friday. To say his performance thus far has captured the attention of golf fans everywhere would be an understatement.

The Masters hasn’t been forced to finish on a Monday since 1983, when Friday’s second round was washed out. Sunday’s forecast calls for scattered thunderstorms in the early afternoon, with increasing likelihood of more consistent storms around 4 p.m.

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The final round of the Masters will be played Sunday morning — with the leaders teeing off more than five hours earlier than normal — because of storms forecast for the evening, Augusta National Golf Club officials announced during play Saturday.

Players normally compete on the weekend at the Masters in twosomes, with everyone beginning on No. 1. But the impending bad weather has compressed the window in which conditions are likely to be suitable for competition. Play will begin at 7:30 a.m. in threesomes from both the first and 10th tees — meaning a portion of the field will play the back nine first.

The final group of Francesco Molinari, Tony Finau and Tiger Woods will tee off at 9:20 a.m., 20 minutes after CBS begins its live coverage.

“The safety of everyone on our grounds is paramount,” Fred Ridley, Augusta National’s chairman, said in a statement. “We also believe the earlier start will give us the best opportunity to complete the Masters on Sunday.”
