: Golf: the Masters

Who will be heading the leaderboard on the penultimate day's play at the year's first Major, taking place at the spectacular Augusta National course in Georgia, USA?
The cream of the world's golfers will be jostling for a share of the$5.6m prize purse but, of course, financial considerations will be of secondary importance to those professionals seeking to join the tournament's youngest winner, Tiger Woods , and its oldest, Jack Nicklaus , as members of the elite band of players entitled to wearthe coveted Green Jacket presented to the champion.
When play finished at this stage last year, American
Jeff Maggert found himself the surprise leader at five under par, having hit a superb round of 66 to overtake
Canadian Mike Weir , who dropped back with a three-over-par 75. Ominously for the rest of the field, however,
Maggert's round was matched by defending champion
Tiger Woods. He battled back from 11 shots off the lead to finish the day trailing by just four, keeping alive his dream of an unprecedented third successive Masters title.
Live coverage is presented by Steve Rider. Commentary comes from Peter Alliss , Ken Brown and Wayne Grady.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
