Follow The Masters at Augusta National online and on Twitter
The Masters does online coverage at Masters.org better than anyone, thanks to their online streams of Amen Corner and No. 15 and 16.
But this is the year that “Tweeting” of the Masters on Twitter will be in seriously high gear - from a wide variety of angles.
For starters, The Masters has it’s official feed. Click here to follow.
Also, Golf Channel will be tweeting live coverage from it’s panel of onsite experts at The Masters. Click here for their feed.
Here’s what the Golf Channel is promising with their new Twitter coverage for 2009:
Golf Channel will feature Twitter updates surrounding The Masters that will provide insight from members of the network’s Live From the Masters team at Augusta. Thursday and Friday, Golf Channel will expand on the 35 hours of wrap around news coverage with observations to capitalize on a team of reporters and analysts who will interview players, officials and personalities making news. In addition, fans will go behind the scenes of Live From the Masters with input from show producers.
Of course, golf fans everywhere will be adding their two cents on Twitter. If you’re new to Twitter, basically it’s a way to share quick thoughts, links, pictures, etc. So look for a bombardment of Augusta National pictures online tomorrow (the last day to have cameras on the course, as The Masters Twitter feed is reminding patrons Tuesday).
Athletes have begun Tweeting more and more lately, including some PGA and LPGA Tour players. The top Tweeter in the field this week is Stewart Cink (click here for is feed). He’s been updating his status consistently and has been teeing it up at Augusta over the last week, making the short drive from his Georgia home.
Cink is also slated to tee it up with Tiger on Thursday, so we’ll see if Cink drops any insider info on the pairing before or after the round.
I’ll be tweeting and blogging myself all week - just not much Wednesday. I’ve got my own game in the morning with WorldGolf.com’s Mike Bailey out in the Texas Hill Country.
Besides, there is no way I’m stomaching Wednesday Masters coverage on ESPN for the Wednesday Par 3 Contest like I did last year. Click here for my not-so-glowing thoughts on the not-so-made-for-TV spectacle.

True it's now easier to find out what's going on at the Masters but at the same time, hasn't it become a bit too easy?
Any wagers going on between you and Mike?
