The 2022 Masters Set For Fox Sports And Nine Broadcast

The upcoming 2022 The Masters golf tournament, set to begin on 8 April from Augusta National Golf Club, is set to be broadcast across Channel Nine, on 9Gem and 9Now, as well as Foxtel, on Fox Sports and Kayo Sports.

As the start of The Masters draws closer, confirmation golf legend, Tiger Woods, appears set to compete, making his return from a major injury, will have a large effect on the broadcast appeal.

Nine will begin its live coverage of The Masters on 7 April with the Par 3 contest, before the four-day tournament begins.

Nine’s Wide World of Sports (WWOS) director of sport, Brent Williams, said the network will also feature additional content with Feature Groups, Amen Corner, and the 15th and 16th holes.

“The Masters has always been a premium tournament and WWOS is proud to continue our long partnership with Augusta,” Williams said.

“It transcends golf and is a must-see, worldwide sporting event that continues to engage and captivate viewers every year.

“With a superstar field in place and Cam Smith and former winner Adam Scott leading the Australian contingent, 9Gem and 9Now will be the only place to watch The Masters live and free, with additional streams available on 9Now,” he said.

Foxtel, meanwhile, will feature The Masters content in the lead up to the event, before bringing more than 100 hours of live coverage from 8 April, covering every round of the tournament across both Fox Sports and Kayo.

Elsewhere, Nine will also extend its coverage of The Masters across its suite of talk radio platforms, including DAB+ in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, and across the apps and websites of 2GB, 3AW, 4BC, and 6PR.

Nine Radio head of content, Greg Byrnes, said: “In a first for our talk stations, we’re thrilled to bring the world’s best golf event to our listeners with a total audio solution, across DAB+, streaming on our apps and websites, and regular updates on our Talk Radio stations.”

“The Masters always builds to a crescendo during the morning commute, so golf fans don’t have to miss a thing when they pull themselves away from the coverage on 9GEM and 9NOW to make their way to work,” he said.
