The new European eTour golf season begins on Thursday, with the Portugal Masters available to watch for free via Sky Sports Golf’s live YouTube stream.

The first round of golf esports is played using the online and mobile golf game World Golf Tour (WGT), with the Portugal Masters being the first of six events in the European eTour 2021 program.

A five-week qualifying process has reduced thousands of players to just eight, those who remain competing in a knockout format for a shot at the top prize of $ 10,000.

Payton Gordley – known in the game as golfx3 – is among those in action as he looks to replicate his dominant 2020 season, where he has won five times and earned over $ 50,000, while Joshua Smith – who plays as JSmithers – starts off as an impressive seed after impressive in the qualifying campaign.

“I’m the favorite in every game,” said Smith. “If I play my game I’m hard to beat. I hope to win a few events this season, I’ve trained a lot and I’m very positive after winning first place in these finals.”

The winners of each quarter-final will advance to the semi-final, with the two remaining players competing for the top prize. The eventing will be live on the European Tour social networks and – for free – from 4 p.m. on the Sky Sports Golf YouTube channel.
