Television, website, we tell you everything if you want to miss nothing of the 87th Masters and the performance of the best players in the world on the mythical route of the Augusta National dressed in the colors of spring. Don’t worry, Golf Planète will not be outdone for the coverage of the tournament with for the first time a special correspondent on site!
Television: Golf+, safe bet
French resident, you are necessarily subscribed to Canal + and in particular to Golf+ if you are a fan of golf. The coverage of the Masters 2023 once again promises to be grandiose. Before the big live, many programs will make you relive the great moments of the tournament at the beginning of the week (Golden Moments and “The Last Hour” of several significant editions…). On Wednesday we are already enjoying the famous par 3 competition programmed live for 2 hours!
Then from Thursday, as usual, the group’s channels will first offer in the middle of the afternoon the Featured Groups (the star games) to follow on Golf+ and Canal+Sport from hole number 1, before international achievement does not take precedence at 9 p.m. on Thursday and Friday (traditional coverage with the entire course).
8.5 hours of live per day and two reruns the next day!
The weekend, the same, the Featured Groups at the end of the afternoon, and the complete “réal” from 9 p.m. on Saturday and 8 p.m. on Sunday. In the comments, Astrid Bard, Thierry David and Nicolas Fabre flanked by consultants Jean Van de Velde and Thomas Levet who will make us live the tournament and behind the scenes on site.
Note that Golf+’s big sister, Canal+ Sport, will also be on hand, especially at weekends, and that many reruns are offered for those who can’t stay up late.

Exceptional website if Canal does not block features…
The official website of the Masters is a gem of graphics and elegance and incredibly rich in terms of content with live cameras everywhere and accessible with a click! Provided there is no GeoBlocking.
During the tournament and if the management of Canal+ does not require the blocking of French Internet users as was the case last year after the 1st round, you will have the right to the fantastic “every shot, every hole” which will allow you to see in video all the shots of your favorite players in “near live”, almost live.
Even better, you can select a list of your favorite players (My Group) and automatically see all the moves of these players one by one.
This real feat was possible thanks to a high-flying device detailed here. We tested it for the first time during the 2020 edition in November and we can tell you that it was good…
3D and mini video
The marvels of technology offered by masters.com and its derivative app also allow you to see in 3D graphics the situation on the course of your favorite, with the distances covered and those he still has to play, with a slight time lag. The icing on the cake is that you can see the shot on video in a small window.
Also note that if you are comfortable with the language of Shakespeare, the official site offers long and exciting daily podcasts and even a commentary generated by an Artificial Intelligence (AI).
