• Masters ’19: Early start to final round

    Masters tee times
    SA fans will get to bed much earlier

    The possibility of severe weather Sunday afternoon has forced the Masters organizers to adjust groupings and tee times for the final round.

    Players will be grouped in threes with tee times scheduled to begin at 13:30 off both the first and 10th tees.

    The leaders will tee off at 15:20.

    ‘The safety of everyone on our grounds is paramount,’ said Fred Ridley, Chairman of Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters Tournament.

    ‘We also believe the earlier start will give us the best opportunity to complete the Masters on Sunday. This decision should benefit everyone – the players, our patrons and our fans watching around the world. Given the competitiveness and drama of this year’s Tournament, we look forward to an exciting conclusion tomorrow.’
