For those working stiffs like me who don’t have the luxury of watching the Masters Tournament from start to finish in the comfort of your own home, the 2011 Masters Tournament Golf iPad App will be the best $1.99 you’ve ever spent.
It has a ton of good content that will be updated frequently for you to peruse on the go, on the throne or in your cube, with headphones, of course..
This content will be available over 3G or Wifi. In addition to the golf iPad App, it’ll also be available for download on the Iphone and Android phones.
You’ll be able to catch CBS’s live simulcast Saturday and Sunday coverage in full-screen HD.
In addition to this, there are eight other live streams of video coverage including:
- Wednesday’s Par 3 Contest
- Tournament Play at Amen Corner
- Tournament Play at Holes 15 and 16
- Two channels of featured groups on their play of the second nine
- Masters In-Depth – A live highlights channel during ESPN and CBS Broadcast
- Masters On The Range – special analysis from a live-streamed practice range showing Monday through Wednesday mornings
- Players press conference live from the press building
Other features of the 2011 Masters iPad App include a live leaderboard, on-demand video highlights, hole-by-hole course information complete with flyover videos and landmark highlights, a historical timeline from 1930-present, and Masters news coverage.
You can personalize the app and select your favorite players, who will then appear at the top of your customized leader board. For the players selected, you can also choose to receive real-time alerts on their tournament performance.
I spent the last hour watching all the highlight videos over wifi, which included Chairman Billy Payne’s 30 minute press conference and I didn’t experience a single delay in the video playback.
Some examples of the highlight videos presently available on the 2011 Masters iPad App are the history’s of the Par 3 Contest and Champions Dinner, Players to Watch, Amateur highlights and Player Interviews.
The Course section of iPad app details every hole with images, story about the hole, name and aerial flyover.
I have a feeling this app is going to make work much more bearable for the next two days! 🙂

Summer is upon us and it’s time to start planning this years golf pilgrimage. In your search you might consider a Hawaii Golf trip or stay a little closer to home and book some Myrtle Beach tee times.
