It’s time for Tiger Woods and his 3-wood to make the 2022 Masters live stream a must-see, as he tees off at one of the most famous tournaments of the year. The iconic golfer has announced that he’s feeling good enough to step up to the tee this year, to try to stop Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama from defending his 2021 victory.
2022 Masters live stream
The Masters 2022 golf tournament starts today (Thursday, April 7) at 8.15 a.m. ET. In the U.S., ESPN will live stream the opening day from 3 p.m. ET. And you can watch your country’s coverage no matter where in the world you are by grabbing a VPN (opens in new tab).
And Woods thinks his 2022 Masters appearance will be different from 2020’s edition, when he landed in a tie at 38th place. This time, Woods thinks he can win, as he told the press on Tuesday. Though we’d doubt that Tiger would ever claim he doesn’t have a chance at taking home the green jacket. And this would be his sixth.
But, dear reader, there is a lot of rust for Woods to break off. He hasn’t played in any tournament since the 2020 Masters, which took place in November of that year (due to pandemic-related delays).
Oh, and about Matsuyama? Well, he arrives without the favor of experts. The favorite for 2022’s Masters is instead the U.S.’s Brooks Koepka. Not only does Cupcake (a nickname he’s only recently begun to embrace with merchandise of his own) have a habit of impressing at the majors, he goes into this year’s edition with something to prove after getting cut last year.
Spain’s Jon Rahm is also one to keep an eye on, as he’s ranked in the top 10 for the last four Masters (4, T9, T7 and T5). His putting game is arguably his biggest enemy.
Unfortunately, heavy thunderstorms overnight have delayed the start of the 2022 Masters, with tee times all pushed back by 30 minutes. The honorary starters will now tee off at 8.15 a.m. ET, with the first group out at 8.30 a.m.
The good news is that there are lots of ways you can tune in to a Masters live stream, wherever you are in the world. Here’s how to watch the Masters 2022 live stream online (oh and we’ve also got all the details on the MLB 2022 live streams, as baseball’s back!).
Masters live stream — watch anywhere
Masters live stream: How to watch the Masters 2022 anywhere with a VPN
Worried about how to watch the 2022 Masters live stream if you’re away from home and can’t access your usual streaming services? Fear not — because you can still get the live streams with a virtual private network, or VPN. A VPN makes it so that you can appear to be surfing the web from your home town, so you can access the same streaming services you’ve already paid for.
Not sure which is the best VPN for you? We’ve tested many different services and our favorite is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab). It offers superb speeds and excellent customer service. But you’ve got other VPN options as well.
Masters live stream — watch in your country
Masters live stream: how to watch the Masters 2022 live online in the US
If you’re in the U.S. and want to watch a Masters live stream of the entire tournament, the simple answer is that you need CBS and ESPN. The latter has the rights to rounds 1 and 2, and the former has round 3 and the final round.
If you already have CBS on cable then you’re good: just head to the CBS website and log in with your cable credentials, and you’ll be able to watch a Masters live stream online.
ESPN Plus will also have live coverage of The Masters on all four days, including “a feed of the 4, 5, 6, 15, & 16 holes on the course,” which “focuses on each of the holes separately versus following the golfers.”
If you’ve cut the cord, you can watch a Masters live stream via a live TV streaming service. We’d suggest looking at FuboTV, because it includes both ESPN and CBS in its starter plan. For a fee of $65, you get a whopping 122 channels including ABC, FOX and NBC, plus sports channels such as NFL Network, the Big Ten Network and the Golf Channel.
Alternatively, you could tune into the final round of the Masters 2022 live stream via CBS’ Paramount Plus streaming service. You need the Premium $9.99 per month plan for this.
And don’t forget, if you’re usually based in the U.S. but aren’t at home right now you can still watch the services you subscribe to by using a VPN such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab).
Also, you don’t have to be in the U.K. to watch Gentleman Jack season season 2 online when it hits the BBC before HBO Max. In other streaming news, a huge upgrade is here for the best streaming service, as the new HBO Max app is finally rolling out. Plus, we’ve got everything you could ask for about tvOS 16.
Speaking of sports and Apple TV, the MLB live streams are here, and we’ve got all the details on how to watch the Astros vs Angels live stream on Friday Night Baseball — which is actually free!
Masters live stream: how to watch the Masters 2022 live online in the UK
As is usually the way with the major golf tournaments, Sky Sports is the place to go to watch a Masters live stream in the U.K. If you don’t already subscribe, you could sign up for the basic Sky package plus the Sky Sports Golf channel (opens in new tab) for £44 per month. However, a current deal from Sky gives you the entire Sky Sports package (opens in new tab) starting from £42 per month, so that’s clearly the better option.
If you don’t want to commit to a lengthy contract, another option is to buy a Now Sports Pass (opens in new tab). This will let you access all 11 of the Sky Sports channels for a limited time, with prices starting at £9.99 for a Day Pass and £33.99 for a month.
