For the second straight year, the Masters Tournament will be finishing early.
According to Golf Channel, CBS Sports Chairman Sean McManus said in a conference call that the plan is for the final round of the Masters to end between 2 p.m. and 2:45 p.m..
That is a little more than an hour before CBS picks up coverage of the NFL game on that day.
The third round of the Masters is scheduled to finish around 5:30 p.m. , prior to CBS’ primetime college football game between Alabama and LSU, according to Golf Channel.
Last year, the Masters ended early due to an incoming storm.
