TSN taps Amen Corner, and Masters

TSN heads
to Augusta National Golf Club for all-encompassing coverage of the first major
of the 2007 golf season –
The Masters
from
April 5 to 8. In
addition to television coverage of all
four rounds
and hour-long preview shows, TSN Broadband will provide exclusive Canadian
online coverage of the famed Amen Corner on Thursday and Friday.

TSN
and TSN HD have live coverage of the tournament’s first two rounds and prime
time encore coverage of the third and final rounds (see broadcast schedule
below).

On
Thursday and Friday, TSN Broadband will provide Canadian golf fans with
exclusive live action of Amen Corner at www.TSN.ca. Made up of holes 11, 12 and
13, Amen Corner is where much of the critical play takes place as golfers must
deal with heavily protected fairways and greens. TSN Broadband will also
provide interviews and highlights of The Masters on-demand throughout the
four-day tournament, while TSN.ca will feature a real-time Top 10 Leaderboard.

TSN and
TSN HD will air 60-minute preview shows live from Augusta National prior to all
