No, your clocks aren’t deceiving you…the final round of the 83rd US Masters Tournament is happening right now, and it promises to be an incredible finale to an already brilliant first golf major of 2019. Prepare for fireworks (and possibly lightning) as you can get a Masters live stream for FREE from absolutely anywhere you are in the world with this guide.
All the US Masters talk is about Tiger of course. Rolling back the years and looking like a genuine threat to grab his 15th major – his first for over 10 years. It’s 22 years since his first win at Augusta National and the raucous crowd will be urging every single shot to “get in the hole” today.
83rd Masters Tournament – where and when
As it has done since the very first version of the Masters back in 1934, the 72-hole tournament will take place at the glorious Augusta national Golf Club in Georgia, US.
It’s on between Thursday April, 11 and Sunday 14. Because of the threat of storms, the final round has started and will finish early. All the leading groups are now on the course – expect the action to finish at around 2.30pm ET (11.30am PT, 7.30pm BST).
But don’t forget that he wasn’t leading the 83rd Masters Tournament going into the final round. That honour went to 2018 Open winner Francesco Molinari, who held a two shot advantage. And what of Tony Finau and Webb Simpson. Both Americans shot 64s yesterday and will be looking to make a push for the title today. And last year’s stand-out player Brooks Koepka is in the mix, too. Anyone could win the coveted Green Jacket today!
Our quick and easy guide will tell you how to watch the fourth and final round – a 2019 Masters live stream online from anywhere in the world. It’s extremely easy to do, even if you are away from your home country when it’s on and want to tune in to your preferred coverage. It’s even FREE in some countries and available to watch without commercials.
How to get a Masters live stream from outside your country
Try to live stream Masters golf away from your home country and you’ll quickly find that your domestic coverage is geo-blocked. It’s frustrating, but not unavoidable – with a Virtual Private Network, you don’t have to miss out as the action really hots up.
This is where a VPN can really come in handy – our favorite is ExpressVPN. The software allows you to alter the IP address of your laptop, tablet, mobile phone or streaming device to one in another country. So you can effectively fool it into thinking it’s back at home, and thus bypass the block – worth checking that the Ts&Cs of your broadcaster allow this first, of course.
We’ve tested hundreds of VPNs and can recommend these as the three best VPN providers currently available:
1. ExpressVPN (comes with a 30 day money back guarantee)
This is the #1 rated best VPN in the world right now. You can watch on many devices at once including Smart TVs, Fire TV Stick, PC, Mac, iPhone, Android phone, iPads, tablets etc. Check out Express VPN and get 3 months free with an annual plan.
2. IPVanish supports up to 10 devices, so great for watching on the go from any device
3. NordVPN: SmartPlay tech makes NordVPN a great, affordable choice for streaming
How to live stream Masters golf for FREE
Your initial go-to option for streaming this year’s Masters in the US is an absolute gimme. Simply head to Masters.com, hit the ‘Watch’ tab and away you go. As well as having all the live action from all four days of play – with a spotlight on featured holes and groups – it also includes footage from the practise range and as many highlights and interviews as you can handle.
You’ll find that the Masters.com live stream is geo-blocked if you try and access it from outside the country. That’s where using a VPN (as explained above) comes in handy, so you can watch it as if you were back in the US.
If it’s all the bells and whistles of broadcast-quality coverage you need and you’re in the US, the alternative is to watch the coverage on ESPN, CBS or a host of cord-cutting options. More on which below.
UK and Australian audiences may not have access to that Masters.com stream, but at least you too have some free-to-air coverage to enjoy. The concluding two rounds are on the UK’s BBC – which also means no pesky ad breaks – while in Australia the Nine Network has it all live and for free.

ESPN and CBS have the share of the spoils in the US, with the former taking the first two rounds (and par three contest) and CBS with rounds three and four.
Note that you will need a US IP address in order to access the above stations or otherwise you won’t be able to access the content from abroad – if you want to do so, you’ll have to follow our VPN guidelines above and log in with a VPN, choosing a US server location.
They aren’t you’re only option though, with all of the top US-based TV streaming services all providing an alternative. Each one offers a free trial to get you started and has masses of other content and channels for you to enjoy if you subscribe:

How to watch the 2019 US Masters: live stream for free and WITHOUT COMMERCIALS in the UK
For Saturday and Sunday at the Masters, BBC Two is showing the last two rounds with completely commercial-free coverage. It has managed to sort out its scheduling last minute and get started as the leaders do at 1.55pm.
It’s not exclusive to the Beeb though and you may well prefer the big-budget broadcasting that Sky Sports Golf supplies. Or, if you don’t want to bother yourself with a Sky Sports subscription, there is another way. Now TV may well be a decent fit for you. It costs £8.99 for a day’s worth of access. And pretty much every streaming device you can think of has a Now app.
Out of the UK this weekend? Then follow our instructions above to get a VPN and tune into your preferred coverage as if you were back in Blighty. Once you’re set up, we’d recommend heading over to stream it on TVPlayer.com, which has all the Freeview channels (including BBC Two) in one place and a robust, legal stream to watch on.
