Can Golf Master 3DTV?

Sony is excited about using the  2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa to demonstrate the prowess of 3D broadcasts — but the New York Times reports the biggest game changer could be golf.

The newspaper says a 3D demonstration of golf being played on the Augusta National course, where the Masters is being held this weekend, looked “terrific” and “will make high definition seem obsolete”. (Likewise, this report.)

Golf fans in this part of the world will have to be satisfied with HD coverage of The Masters  in the meantime: Sky Sport 1’s live telecasts will run from 8am on Friday and Saturday, from 7.30am on Sunday, and from 6am on Monday (there also will be live coverage of the Par 3 Challenge from 8am on Thursday).

Meanwhile, the NYT also has published a fascinating profile of Tiger Woods, who will make his much ballyhooed return to tournament golf at The Masters, that analyses his importance to the sport’s rating fortunes.
