A Masters History: Anniversary Special highlights the 50th and 25th anniversaries of the 1968 and 1993 Masters. 1968 champion Bob Goalby sits down to look back on his final round 66 to tie Roberto De Vicenzo at 11-under. Before they could compete in an 18-hole playoff to decide the winner, however, it was discovered that De Vicenzo had signed an incorrect scorecard, resulting in a disqualification for De Vicenzo and a green jacket for Goalby. Bernhard Langer recaps his second Masters victory in 1993, and his skillful second nine play on Sunday to pull away from the field. Sergio Garcia is also interviewed and discusses last year's Masters win and his first major victory. The special airs during Masters week and is available on SiriusXM On Demand now at https://app.siriusxm.us/2I4ITYd.
With Tiger Woods set to return to Augusta National, Masters History: Tiger at Augusta examines Tiger's four Masters victories (1997, 2001, 2002 and 2005) with commentary from former coach Hank Haney.
