In Augusta, tournament officials prepared for the brunt of storms to hit the course by about 1:30 p.m.
The final round was played under cloudy and breezy conditions. Winds gusted to near 25 mph at times.
As the lead shrunk in the late back-nine, CBS’s station in metro Atlanta broke in to the tournament’s national coverage with live storm updates. They interrupted once again, as the leaders headed into the final holes.
@CBS46 is #StormModeToneDeaf! No confirmed tornados and you are interrupting to promote your flailing news and weather team! You are not making friends or influencing people. Seriously...Go Back to the Masters Broadcast!!!
It took @cbs46 15 minutes to tell everyone, repeatedly, that their coverage will continue on Facebook Live, instead of just going to Facebook live. One more note, anyone who has @DIRECTV in that area, never saw a single second of that warning. Their TV went out an hour ago.
Great job @cbs46 breaking in to @TheMasters ...They are using split screen showing #TheMasters too...Responsible reporting of possible tornado, don't worry if you start getting complaints....Lives more important than golf, and I like/play golf and watching Masters too pic.twitter.com/k4dviSjaH1
