The article reports that the early coverage of professional golf's Masters Tournament in the U.S. is moving to ESPN in 2008. ESPN will be restricted to just three hours a day of live coverage, with a limited commercial inventory. It is not clear how long the golf tournament will run on ESPN because the network only detailed its rights to televise the 2008 tournament.
