The latest apps can bring you much more this year with live scores, video streams, highlights, and interviews to keep you connected almost anywhere.

You’ll find The Masters Golf Tournament app here on iTunes and it’s tagged “the official iPhone app“, which includes some of the best PGA coverage we’ve seen in an app although expected considering it’s “official“. You’ll get special analysis during practice range, in-depth live Masters highlights while CBS and ESPN broadcast, 7 live video streams although it’s worth noting these are only available to U.S. users, and a nice interactive leaderboard for The 2012 Masters Golf Tournament.

Within the last couple of weeks the app has been updated to v4.0, which includes a new “Getting There” section that helps you find the Augusta National Golf Club with an interactive map, expanded photo galleries, and some design improvements.

While having a play one feature that we enjoyed while watching the action had been a course overview feature, which allowed us to get detailed information on the hole currently being played. This included yardage, what par the hole is, flyover videos, and other information on the 18 holes at this years 2012 Masters Golf Tournament.
