It's the mystery of watching golf on TV. A player hits a putt, the ball starts rolling toward the hole, then with no warning it curves hard to the left.
To the few Americans who own 3-D-capable television sets, every undulation of the greens at Augusta National will be visible during the Masters.
A special national broadcast of the Masters this week is the first of what could soon be many 3-D sports events available on home TVs. ESPN will launch a 3-D network later this year in time for the World Cup.
A live stream of the Masters will also be available for 3-D-capable computers.
