Sky Sports will continue to show exclusive live coverage of Masters Golf from 2015, following a new multi-year agreement.

It means that Sky Sports will be the only place for viewers to watch Bubba Watson defend his Green Jacket in 2015.

Sky Sports first agreed a deal to show exclusive live coverage of Masters Golf back in 2011, and will continue to show all four rounds, as well as all the action from the Par 3 Contest.

Sky Sports News will also provide ample coverage of the tournament, reporting on all of the build-up from player press conferences and interviews, to live reports throughout the four days of competition at Augusta National.

As a result of the new agreement from the broadband and digital TV provider, viewers in Ireland can enjoy all four days of the prestigious tournament, including exclusive live coverage of Rounds 1 and 2.

There’s also exclusive live coverage of the Par 3 Contest, held on the Wednesday ahead of the main event, where competitors battle it out across Augusta’s Par 3 course.

Sky Sports will also be showing coverage from the tricky holes around Amen Corner, Masters in Depth, special coverage from the 15th and 16th holes, as well as rolling highlights throughout play.

Further detailed analysis and the best moments from each day’s play will feature on ‘Masters Breakfast’, providing customers with all they need to know.

“The Masters is more than a Major, it is a magical tournament played on a magnificent golf course, producing incredible golf every year,” explained Barney Francis, Managing Director of Sky Sports.

“We look forward to continuing our coverage of the Masters and providing the coverage this unique golf event deserves.”

A host of big names from the golfing world feature on the coverage, with six times Masters winner Jack Nicklaus making a special appearance in 2014.
