Masters TV Schedule 2011: Coverage Begins At Noon On ESPN

The 2011 Masters tees off early Thursday morning with ceremonial tee shots by Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus. But even as golfers head off the first tee in waves beginning at 7:45 a.m., coverage will be lagging behind, with ESPN scheduled to hit the airwaves from the course some seven hours later. Thursday's coverage begins at 12 p.m. here on the West Coast as ESPN broadcasts live from Augusta National Golf Course in Georgia.

Phil Mickelson will take part in the featured group during Thursday's first round, with ESPN following the trio of Mickelson, Geoff Ogilvy and Peter Uihlein. Anthony Kim, Stewart Cink and Bubba Watson are among the big names with tee times around the broadcast window, as well.

Here's a full look at the ESPN broadcast windows over the first two rounds.
