Masters 2012 Tee Times And Pairings: Plenty Of Drama Scheduled For 'Moving Day' At Augusta National

The third round of The Masters tees off shortly after 9:00 a.m. ET on Saturday morning with a large field and a ton of storylines at the top of the leaderboard. The 63 players who made the cut will mark the largest weekend field at Augusta National Golf Club since 1992.

With the weather warming up, and the course drying out, Saturday, which is historically known as "moving day," should provide plenty of drama. Anyone who makes the cut at The Masters still has a chance of winning the tournament -- it's the benefit of the 10-shot cut rule. But to have a chance, you have to make a charge up the board starting immediately on Saturday. Current co-leader Fred Couples moved up 28 spots with his 67 on Friday, and the morning tee times will have to put up at least that number to get back in it before Sunday.

One of those morning tee times is occupied by Tiger Woods, who had one of the worst major rounds of his career on Friday, failing to make a birdie on the second nine and finishing with a 75. Woods will go off at 10:45 a.m ET.

The final hour of tee times and last seven groups of the day are loaded with superstars and potential contenders, beginning with Phil Mickelson at 1:45. Lefty shot an impressive 68 on Friday after a debacle on No. 10 on Thursday put him behind the eight ball early. Couples, along with Jason Dufner, will round out the day with the final tee time at 2:45 p.m. ET.
