Tiger Woods will begin his quest for his fifth Masters championship right in the middle of the pack, teeing off at 10:45 a.m. Thursday in the 15th group of the day.

Woods, who will have the next-to-last tee time (1:41 p.m.) for Friday’s second round, will be playing with Luke Donald and Scott Piercy.

Defending champion Bubba Watson gets the traditional pairing with reigning U.S. Amateur winner Steven Fox at 10:34 a.m., with Ian Poulter as the third member of the group.

Phil Mickelson will tee off Thursday at 1:30, playing with Louis Oosthuizen and Martin Kaymer. He will be followed by the threesome of Rory McIlroy, Keegan Bradley and Fredrik Jacobsen.

One of the more interesting groupings is made up of two-time Masters champion Ben Crenshaw, 61, competing alongside 19-year-old Matteo Manassero and Tianlang Guan who, at 14, is the youngest contestant in Masters history. They tee off at 12:24 p.m. Thursday.

A total of 93 players will be participating, reduced by one because of Monday’s withdrawal of Darren Clarke with a hamstring injury.
