• Masters Week with a difference on TV

    SuperSport will continue ‘Masters Week’ by filling the week with great moments, mythology and classic contests set to be well served by blocks of memorable historic content.

    Starting on Wednesday, with highlights of Gary Player’s second win at Augusta in 1974, the Masters package will roll back the years to such landmarks as Seve Ballesteros’ twin triumphs, the sixth win by Jack Nicklaus, perhaps the greatest golfer of them all, plus subsequent heroics by Nick Faldo and Phil Mickelson.

    Naturally enough, a huge slice of Masters history is aligned to Tiger Woods and Friday will bring a 10-hour block dedicated to the charismatic five-time champion.

    Saturday’s Masters broadcast will have an especially strong South African dimension with highlights of Trevor Immelman’s win in 2008 and Charl Schwartzel’s three years later.

    Bubba Watson’s 2012 playoff win against Louis Oosthuizen will also feature.

    The Masters special will close out, appropriately enough, with Woods’ remarkable comeback win last year.

    All will be screened on SuperSport 5.
