Masters 2012 Tee Times And Pairings: Tiger Woods To Tee Off At 10:35 A.M. Thursday

The tee times and pairings for Thursday's first round of the Masters Tournament have been released, and viewers who tune into ESPN's afternoon coverage will not get to see very much of Tiger Woods.

The four-time champion is paired with South Korea's Sang-Moon Bae and Spain's Miguel Angel Jimenez, and will tee off at 10:35 a.m. ESPN's afternoon coverage begins at 3 p.m., so viewers might just be able to catch Woods as he finishes his round.

The defending champion, South Africa's Charl Schwartzel, will tee off in the group before Woods, at 10:24 a.m. He'll be joined by Americans Keegan Bradley and Kelly Kraft. The honor of hitting the first competitive ball of the 2012 Masters will go to one of Craig Stadler, Brendan Steele, or Tim Clark. They tee off at 7:50 a.m.

Three-time champion Phil Mickelson will be in the last group of the day, along with Hunter Mahan and Peter Hanson. They start off at 1:53 p.m. 2011 U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy starts in the next-to-last group, along with Angel Cabrera and Bubba Watson. They start at 1:42 p.m.

Local fans might want to keep an eye on Johnson Wagner, who went to Virginia Tech. He plays with Tom Watson and Hideki Matsuyama at 9:40 a.m.
