Does anybody know the title or name of the music CBS and USA play during their coverage of the Masters golf tournament??? They've been using this beautiful piano ballad for over 10 years now and I have to have it!!!

I will take a guess here ...

Regarding golf coverage on CBS specifically ...

While back, I actually watched the end credits of one of the golf events ... saw that the music theme was provided by Yanni ... yes, the Yanni!

Just did some Googling for ya ...

Yanni - "Fanfare" (<-- written exclusively for CBS golf coverage)

Found a website where you can listen to a sample of it ...
http://bobmenzies.com/content/links_main.htm

You will need to scroll down just a little - to the box called "Golf Miscellaneous" - at the bottom of it, you will see a picture of the CBS Sports logo on the side of a media truck, with a little info on the song and the actual link to the sound sample ...

Right or wrong (and I certainly hope that this is the song you're looking for) ...
Enjoy!
There you go.

Thanks, that's it! I loved listening to the little clip, but it is just teasing me because I have still yet to find a place I can download the whole thing from...I will continue feverishly looking, but thanks for giving me a starting point!

Cool! You're welcome! ... Good luck tracking it down!

... Btw, I should mention ... since the time I posted my answer about Yanni ... I have learned about a piece of music specifically related to The Masters tourney coverage ...

I forget at this very moment if it was answered in another thread here at WTC or (more than likely) over at AdTunes ...

If you're interested in that particular piece of music too, I would look into this as well if I were you ...

Enjoy!
There you go.

The song you're looking for isn't the one by Yanni - that one's used for every other golf tournament except the Masters. What you want is "Augusta" originally by Dave Loggins...but there's a catch. I got this a few years back, and while it is the right song it has lyrics and barely resembles the CBS broadcast version. Even worse, I've been looking for the CBS instrumental version for about 5 years and am no closer to finding it now than I was then. My conclusion is that this music is a closely guarded copyright of either CBS or Augusta National and thus not available to the public. If anyone finds it let me know. Otherwise, if you're really savvy, you can use your DVR if you have one and record the broadcast. Alternatively, I remember a few years back that during the Par 3 tournament on the Wednesday before the Masters, masters.org looped the music over live video footage. I'm not sure if they still do that, or how to take advantage of it, but there you go.

I FOUND IT!!!

It's the full instrumental version of Dave Loggins' "Augusta" (EXACTLY the one they use for the Masters)! I'm listening to it now.

Listen/download at http://www.eatgolf.c...-theme-song.php

Enjoy!

These guys write most of the music for the Masters and PGA on CBS, now they have an album you can buy on iTunes and amazon:
