G4G reader “Mike,” apparently has an affiliation with Mastersgolf.ca,the site broadcasting parts of the tournament online. Strange they didn’t do more promotion for the site in advance of the tournament, but he points out their coverage in a comment from yesterday.
Here’s when you can watch from your desk at work, not that I’m encouraging that sort of behaviour, of course…

Writer’s Update: As anyone can see from the comments, this service is spotty at best. I’ve tried it twice, it lasted for about 45 seconds and then tuned me out, saying “there is no live coverage.” Really? If this was supposed to catch some attention, then it has — just the wrong kind. I’m sure more people than just G4G readers are becoming frustrated and tuning out.
And more… just got off the phone with someone at the company that controls the right’s to the Internet broadcast in Canada. They say the problem is bandwidth-based and stems from IBM, which runs the technical elements of the telecast. Apparently they are desperately searching for a solution.
