Golf’s first major tournament of the year, The Masters, returns to Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga., as the top players in the game compete for the coveted green jacket and a place in golf history. Australia’s Adam Scott, the first Aussie to ever win The Masters, is defending champion. He’ll compete against the likes of Henrik Stenson, Jason Day, Phil Mickelson, Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia, Zach Johnson and Dustin Johnson.

In addition to regular TV coverage CBSSports.com and Masters.com provide more than 125 hours of live online video with five Masters Live channels.

Two fixtures of The Masters will be noticeably absent this year. First, the world’s No. 1 ranked player, Tiger Woods, will miss his first Masters Tournament due to back surgery. And the famed Eisenhower Tree is now gone, having suffered severe damage from an ice storm in February. The pine tree on the 17th hole was frequently hit by president Dwight Eisenhower, who campaigned to have it removed.

Mike Tirico hosts ESPN’s Masters coverage with analyst Curtis Strange. Jim Nantz will cover The Masters for CBS for the 29th straight year (27th year as host), joined by analyst and three-time Masters champion Sir Nick Faldo.
