Masters 2012 TV coverage schedule

arnold-palmer-jack-nicklaus-gary-player-masters.jpgIt's that time of year again - a tradition unlike any other. The 2012 Masters golf tournament live from Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia.

Pundits are expecting a face-off between Rory McIlroy, the 22-year-old golfer from Northern Ireland who coughed up a four-stroke lead on the final day of the 2011 Masters tournament to finish tied for 15th, and Tiger Woods, who earned his first PGA tour win since his marital scandal broke in 2009 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational on March 25. A lot of eyes will certainly be on those two.
