If you’re looking to tune into day 2 of the prestigious golf tournament, we have everything you need on how to watch the Masters live stream for free. Some big names were a little off the pace yesterday, so they’ll be looking to make up lost ground in order to avoid being on the wrong side of the cut heading into the weekend.

TV coverage in the US is split between ESPN and CBS and is also available on Paramount Plus. Better yet, the entire event is also streaming online for free on the Masters website for US viewers. If you’re outside of the US, we can show you how to get access to that free Masters live stream too via the use of a VPN. You could be watching just a few minutes from now and be all set for the weekend.

Defending champion Scottie Scheffler returns to the tournament as the world’s top-ranked golfer and a favorite to win this year’s event, although Viktor Hovland is in the lead after day one. Tiger Woods is also in the mix after returning to professional play at last year’s event but will need to perform much better than yesterday to make the cut. Likewise for one Rory Mcllroy.

You can follow individual golfers at and through The Masters Tournament app. The “Every Shot, Every Hole” feature will let you stream coverage for free without relying on ESPN or CBS to follow the action. You can also follow the Masters leaderboard and cut line on the PGA Tour website.

Where to watch the Masters in the US

You can watch the 2023 Masters Tournament on ESPN, CBS, and the website. ESPN will broadcast the first two rounds of the tournament on April 6 and 7, while CBS will air the final two rounds on April 8 and 9. Meanwhile, the Masters website will offer live-streaming coverage of every shot and hole. 

The ESPN and CBS TV broadcasts are limited to a few hours of the tournament each day, so the best way to catch all the action or follow a specific golfer is to use The Masters Tournament app or the website. Both offer free streams of every hole and daily featured groups throughout the tournament. Simulcasts of the tournament’s CBS and ESPN broadcasts will also be available on and the app, but may require you to log in with a pay-TV account. 

The CBS and broadcasts will also be streamed on Paramount Plus, which starts at $10 a month (after a 7-day free trial). CBS and ESPN are also included as channels on live TV streaming services like Hulu + Live TV ($70/month) and FuboTV ($75/month) – Fubo also has a 7-day free trial. 

What if you’re not in the US?

If you’re outside the US right now, you might be in an area that doesn’t have access to the free live stream of the Masters. But don’t worry, that’s where a VPN comes in. A VPN will let you stream the Masters from the website no matter where you are, while also creating a more secure connection at home or on public Wi-Fi.

Our top recommended VPN service is ExpressVPN, which comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee if you’re unsatisfied. You can also check our full list of the best VPN providers.
