When Tiger Woods plays in the Australian Masters in two weeks, viewers Down Under will be able to watch the normal telecast on free TV. However, pay viewers will get the option of watching only Woods by pressing a red button on their remote control. The Age's Geoff McClure has the details:In what
will be an Australian television first, viewers who, by simply
pressing the red button on their remote control, will be able to
watch ''the Tracker'' where they will see every televised shot of
Woods as he makes his way around the 18 holes of the four-day
tournament. Foxtel is televising the event along with the
free-to-air service provided by Channel Nine. While Nine will
naturally be focusing much of its attention on the world's greatest
golfer, Foxtel will provide a service whereby viewers will be able
to see nothing but Woods or, if they prefer, one of the other stars
of the show, players such as Geoff Ogilvy, Robert Allenby
and Adam Scott.
Of course, some critics might say American viewers get Tiger Tracker every weekend, and we don't even have to press a button.Related: More Tiger | Career in photos | Family photos | Woods vs. NicklausFollow Mike Walker on Twitter.
