Masters Golf Tournament 2011: First Round Tee Times, Schedule And Pairings

After a week of anticipation, The Masters begins on Thursday with the ceremonial first tee time bright and early at 7:40 a.m. Eastern. For the second consecutive year, Arnold Palmer will be joined by Jack Nicklaus on the first tee with the ceremonial first drive. The real action gets started five minutes later as Jonathan Byrd, Ross Fisher and Sean O'Hair take the course as the first group to tee-off at the 2011 Masters.

All the usual suspects are here, spread out across 33 threesomes. Tiger Woods is paired with Graeme McDowell and Robert Allenby in the 10:41 tee time, with Phil Mickelson in the second-to-last pairing -- along with Geoff Ogilvy and U.S. Amateur champion Peter Uihlein. The Masters traditionally pairs the previous year's champion with the previous year's U.S. Amateur champion.
