With a three=shot advantage heading into Round 4 of the 2022 Masters, you'd think that it would be pretty safe to sew Scottie Scheffler's name into the Green Jacket. But the August National does funny things to players on Sundays (just ask Greg Norman or Jordan Spieth) and we could be in for a riveting day of major golf. So make sure you know exactly how to watch a 2022 Masters live stream online where you are, with or without cable, including ways to watch the golf absolutely FREE.

If the 2022 Masters was supposed to be all about Tiger Woods, it seems somebody forgot to tell Scheffler. On Thursday, it really felt like Tiger was conjuring up yet another Masters miracle, but the great one faded since making the cut and won't be in contention to produce another Augusta fairytale today.
Indeed, the bewilderment that greeted Scheffler's ascent to world No.1 will provide plenty of motivation for the American to go on an win his first major. Although 2022's breakout star Cameron Smith could eclipse yet eclipse him, having already shot to success at the Tournament of Champions and the Players Championship this year and with Aussie viewers being treated to a free Masters stream thanks to the Nine Network.
Elsewhere, former major champs Charl Schwartzel, Justin Thomas, Danny Willett and Shane Lowry are all in and around the mix, but it would take a brave gambler to pick a winner who isn;t playing in today's final pairing. Even reigning champion Hideki Matsuyama has dropped off the pace - there will be no repeat from the brilliant Japanese player.
Watch the climax of the 2022 Masters unfold and follow our guide as we explain how to watch a Masters live stream online, so that you won't miss a moment from Augusta National.

Masters 2022 dates: when is the Masters being played this year?
The tournament tees off on Thursday, April 7, with the fourth and final round set to be played on Sunday, April 10.
Masters 2022: weather forecast for Augusta
Rain definitely has a part to play at the 86th edition of the Masters, with heavy showers forecast on Thursday.
The wet will ease up as we progress through the tournament, with the potential for light rainfall on both Friday and Saturday.
Sunday is expected to be relatively warm and sunny, but all in all it will be a chilly affair.
Who won The Masters last year?
Hideki Matsuyama was a massive outsider before the tournament, but became the first ever Japanese golfer to win a men's golf major when he shot to glory at Augusta National a year ago.
Unfortunately, there are concerns that he won't be able to defend his crown, with the 30-year-old enduring an injury-hit year.
Is Tiger Woods playing in The Masters this year?
It's the question we're all waiting for an answer to. Nobody really expected Tiger Woods to make an appearance at Augusta National this year, but he's officially on the scene.
He's been putting his strength to the test and teasing onlookers, his limp serving as a reminder, as if we needed one, of an all-too-close brush with death a year ago.
Playing through pain is par for the course for Woods, but even if his body can cope with the physical demands of the tournament, will he want to risk his stellar run of making the cut as 21 straight Masters tournament?
How many times has Tiger Woods won The Masters? Who has won the most Masters?
Tiger Woods has won the Masters five times - in 1997, 2001, 2002, 2005 and 2019.
He's also the youngest ever Masters champion, having been just 21 years and 104 days old when he claimed his first green jacket in 1997.
Only Jack Nicklaus has more Masters titles to his name (six), and the Golden Bear also holds the record for the most majors, with 18. Woods is second, with 15.
