Watch 2016 Masters Final Round Live Online: Start Times, Streaming Video Link For Sunday’s Final
Fans can watch the final round of the Masters golf tournament live online and see if Jordan Spieth can hang on to what once looked to be a commanding lead to end the weekend with the green jacket, or if one of the surprising challengers at this heels can overtake the defending champion.
As action on Saturday came to a close, Spieth faltered on the final two holes to see his four-shot lead shrink to just one shot. Spieth said it was “tough to swallow” to see such a strong lead fade so quickly, but said he’s still happy to be leading going into Sunday’s final round.
“Understand this is the position I wanted to be in after 54 holes,” he said (via ESPN), “and not think about the finish to today’s round.”

Though Spieth sounded shaken after the late collapse, ESPN analyst Ian O’Connor believes he still has what it takes to win on Sunday.
“He’s a better, stronger player than he was last April, when he protected his 4-stroke lead over Justin Rose and 5-stroke lead over Phil Mickelson and refused to fold like McIlroy did at the same age in 2011. The lead isn’t nearly as big this year, but the closest challengers aren’t as threatening, either.”
Behind Spieth is surprising rookie Smylie Kaufman, a 24-year-old who once played junior golf against Spieth.

Though the pressure of the final round at Augusta is enough to make even seasoned golfers crack, Kaufman seemed to have a laid-back demeanor going into Sunday’s round.
“This place fits my eye pretty well,” Kaufman said. “I just enjoy playing, coming out every day. It’s Augusta National. It’s hard not to have some fun out there.”
Fans who watch the final round of the 2016 Masters live online could see something even more amazing. Bernhard Langer, who at 58 would be the oldest winner of a major tournament by 10 years, is just two shots off the lead going into Sunday’s action.
“It would be one for the old guys,” Langer told USA Today after two-under-par round of 70.
Langer, who won the Masters in 1985 and 1993, believes he can do it again.
“I believe I can,” Langer said. “I’ve been saying it’s going to happen sooner or later, one of the over-50s is going to win a major. The guys are staying fit. They are taking care of themselves. We see it amongst the young guys, but as they get older they are going to be in better shape, and it’s just a matter of time.”
But Langer said he knew it would take a big round on Sunday in order to close out with a victory.
“Obviously, it depends how the others do, but if I play my best, I can shoot 4 or 5 under tomorrow, I think, if the conditions are a little bit better. But so can Jordan Spieth or any of the others on the leaderboard. So I can only play my game and see how that holds up.”
