Augusta National is set to host a Masters video game tournament on the Sunday before Masters week starts. And the cool thing is, it’ll be live-streamed for all of us to check out. I think this is really cool, I’m really interested in checking it out. So according to Golf Digest, heres how everything will go down on Sunday April 2nd.
Participants from the sports, entertainment and gaming world will go head to head against each other playing the new EA Sports PGA Tour: Road To The Masters video game. The event will take place in the Augusta National press building and will be from 6-8pm. You’ll be able to live stream it on Masters.com
You can also live-stream it on all of the Masters social media platforms, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.

Four teams of two players will play alternate-shot format in the new EA Sports game. After nine holes, the top two teams will advance to a three-hole, alternate-shot final round at Amen Corner (holes 11-13 at Augusta National).
