2011 Masters Pairings, First and Second Rounds

By April 5, 2011

Follow me on:

First things first: Tiger Woods tees off at 10:41 a.m. (Eastern time) in Thursday's first round and 1:48 p.m. in Friday's second round; Phil Mickelson tees off at 1:48 p.m. in Round 1 and 10:30 a.m. in Round 1. Mickleson has the second-to-last tee time in the first round and Woods has the second-to-last tee time in the second round. That's called making your TV partners happy.

The full list of groupings and tee times for the first two rounds of the 2011 Masters Tournament are listed below. A few spotlight pairings include Woods with Graeme McDowell and Robert Allenby; and Mickelson with Geoff Ogilvy and amateur Peter Uihlein.

Other marquee groups include Dustin Johnson, Adam Scott and Nick Watney; Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Jason Day; Martin Kaymer, Lee Westwood and Matt Kuchar; Hunter Mahan, Ernie Els and Francesco Molinari; Fred Couples, Luke Donald and Steve Stricker; and Bubba Watson, Paul Casey and Edoardo Molinari.

I may be the only one who feels this way, and I may have selfish and misplaced emotion about it, but I feel that Jack Nicklaus more or less OWES it to history to play in this tournament IF he is physically breathing and sitting up to take nourishment. Why? Because Jack Nicklaus is the greatest golfer to ever swing a club, and his knowledge of the course at Augusta National still makes him a viable threat to win EVEN at his advanced age and in his replaced-hip-condition. I’m in my 60′s; I can tell you as a social studies teacher that young people today just do not KNOW who Jack Nicklaus is and they need to see him on television, living and breathing and hitting a golf ball. I understand Jack’s reasoning NOT to be there. Nonetheless, I feel he owes it to history to play.

Jack may be the best player ever, he worked hard to maintain a competitive edge for more than 4 decades and Jacks owes nothing to any sport history. He has already made history and can easily be seen on video playing in his prime. Having Jack show up in itself an honor to the tournament and game. Jack earned the respect he has and does not OWE any one anything.
