The Masters on ESPN+

ESPN+ will have live coverage on all four days of the tournament. The streaming service is now the exclusive streaming home of the PGA Tour in the U.S. 

There will be 35 tournaments and more than 4.300 hours of live coverage in 2022 from January to November. 

That includes multiple feeds such as Featured Groups and Featured Hole coverage. 

Featured groups typically show three to four golfers and their round for the day. There are two windows for groups. Two groups are shown in the morning. Two more are in the afternoon.

Generally speaking, featured-hole coverage shows different camera angles of players on certain holes. To pick an alternative feed, you can just navigate to the camera icon at the bottom of the screen. 

ESPN+ is a month-to-month subscription no matter how or where you sign up. You can easily cancel online whenever you like.
