DSport, Discovery Communications’ sports TV channel, is all set to broadcast the Augusta Masters 2018 for Indian viewers. The tournament, taking place at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, USA, from April 6-9, will be aired from 12:30 am (IST).
This year’s Master’s will be special as the young Golf sensation from India, Shubhankar Sharma, has received a special invitation to compete in the Masters. Sharma, the 21-year-old prodigy from India, has been invited during a breakthrough season, which includes two wins over four months and a top-10 finish in his first PGA Tour event. He became the youngest player from India to win on the European Tour at the Joburg Open in December. He earned his second win at the Maybank Championship in February and then made his PGA Tour debut at the WGC-Mexico Championship and finished T-9 after holding the lead after 36 and 54 holes. This will be Sharma’s first Masters’ appearance.
Won in the past by the likes of Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia and Vijay Singh, the Masters is the biggest and the most prestigious tournament in Golf. Over four days, champions will compete against each other over the course of 72 holes for a chance to win the coveted Green Jacket and to get their names etched in The Master’s history. This April, DSport brings a chance for Indian golf enthusiasts to take a journey down the Magnolia lane and explore the iconic traditions, moments and history of the Masters tournament.
