The Masters Adds Yet Another Dimension
By Stephanie Wei under General

For the seven people who actually own the technology, good news — The Masters will be broadcast in 3-D on television and the Internet. It will be the first 3-D sports event aired in the United States.

A live feed will be available for free via Comcast and The Masters website. Starting with the Par 3 contest on Wednesday, April 7, there will be two hours of coverage where seven viewers can experience Phil Mickelson jabbing a thumb in your face and Camilo Villegas bombing a drive into your living room.

Be prepared for reviews filled with words like “eye-popping!” “brilliant spectacle!” and “sensational visual drama!” You know, it’ll be like you’re there.

Which will probably make 99.9% of the population wish we had a spare $3,000 lying around or a golden ticket to Augusta.
