Get ready golf fans for an interactive Masters experience.

DIRECTV said it will offer subscribers coverage of the 2008 Masters Golf Tournament through what it called a unique multi-channel broadcast package. The service will combine live CBS and ESPN coverage of the tournament with additional views of the Augusta National Golf Club course, access to tournament leader board information, hole-by-hole player statistics, scores, a course tour and on-demand video clips.

All Masters channels will be available in HD and standard-definition, DIRECTV said.

The 2008 Masters will take place April 10-13. The enhanced DIRECTV service will be available during ESPN coverage of the first two rounds and CBS coverage of the final two rounds.
