CBS Sports has released the TV ratings for Sunday’s final round at The Masters, which saw Tiger Woods win his first major championship since the 2008 U.S. Open.
Unsurprisingly, the ratings for the final round – despite a 9 a.m. E.T. start due to expected weather – are strong.
The Masters’ final round was the highest-rated morning golf event in 34 years. The final round peaked with a 12.1/28 ratings/share.

CBS Sports’ final-round coverage of the 2019 Masters, which aired live Sunday morning due to the weather adjusted tee times (9:00 AM-3:00 PM, ET) and its encore presentation of the final-round (3:00-7:00 PM, ET), dominated the day’s sports landscape scoring the top two rated sports broadcasts of the day.
Live coverage of the Masters final round delivered a 7.7/21 average household rating/share in the metered markets, the highest-rated morning golf broadcast in 34 years.* Yesterday’s final round also is the highest-rated golf broadcast on any network since last year’s Masters final round.
The final-round peaked with a 12.1/28 rating/share from 2:15-2:30 PM, ET.
Yesterday’s final-round live coverage and encore presentation earned a combined gross household rating/share of 11.1/29 in the metered markets.
The encore presentation of the final round earned a 3.4/8 rating/share, the third-highest rated golf broadcast-to-date on any network this year behind only the live third-round and final-round of the Masters in the metered markets.
Tiger Woods is good for golf. You knew that already, though.
The 15-time major champion will be competing for another major title next month. The PGA Championship is set to take place in mid-May.
