AUGUSTA, Ga. – The Masters will be broadcast in 3-D – although few Americans own the technology to take advantage.

Augusta National announced Monday that next month’s tournament can be viewed on 3-D-capable television sets and computers. It will be the first 3-D sports event on TV in the United States; previous experiments used movie theaters.

Few Americans currently own the capable sets, but networks believe 3-D could be the next big thing and are starting to offer programming.

Comcast will broadcast the coverage for free to its customers with 3-D sets. A feed will also be available on the Masters’ Web site.

Two hours of live afternoon coverage, mostly of the back nine, will be aired each day of the tournament starting with Wednesday’s Par 3 Contest on April 7.
