2013 Masters: First Round Groupings And Tee Times

It’s Tuesday of Masters Week, which means Augusta National has released the pairings and tee times for the opening two rounds of the 2013 Masters. 

Beginning at 8 a.m. on Thursday, 1988 champion Sandy Lyle will kick off the competition with John Peterson and Nathan Smith.

Tiger Woods goes off with Luke Donald and Scott Piercy at 10:45 a.m. In the group before that, defending champion Bubba Watson is joined by Ian Poulter and 2012 U.S. Amateur champion Steven Fox at 10:34 a.m.

Phil Mickelson will begin the chase for a fourth Masters title in a decade at 1:30 p.m., playing alongside 2012 Masters playoff loser Louis Oosthuizen and 2012 Ryder Cup hero (but Augusta National dud) Martin Kaymer. 

After the trio at 1:41 p.m., Rory McIlroy seeks a second consecutive major alongside tournament sleeper Keegan Bradley and Fredrik Jacobson.

Finally, history will be made at 12:25 p.m. as 14-year-old Tianlang Guan will become the youngest Masters competitor ever. He is joined by Matteo Manassero, who will hold the honor until Guan’s tee shot, and two-time champion Ben Crenshaw.
