Tee times are released for the Masters! Even without the Masters getting the memo of putting Craig and Kevin Stadler together, here are 3 of the more interesting pairings, who aren’t necessarily full of superstars.
Group 17, 10:52 pm, Jordan Spieth, Patrick Reed, Rory McIlroy
The young guns grouping is positioned to anchor the second day of coverage since it looks like they’ll be the last group off on Friday. No need to mention how good these guys are. Interesting note about Reed though is that he finished his college career at Augusta St. and has undoubtedly played the Nation many times. And familiarity helps. For Speith, just his first appearance.
Group 28, 1:04 pm, Jason Day, Dustin Johnson, Henrik Stenson
Two of the three people who can overtake Tiger Woods for number one in the world rankings (Day and Stenson). Add into the mix Dustin Johnson (who withdrew from the SHO last week) and you’ve got yourself a featured group. With Jason Day, it’s funny to think about that he has only two wins on the PGA Tour. One in 2010, and in February with the WGC Matchplay. I’d expect more with him being ranked 4th in the world.
Group 33, 1:59 pm – Harris English, Lee Westwood, Russell Henley
Old Georgia teammates get to tee it up in the state of Georgia. Having playing familiarity is certainly helpful in this last tee time of the first day.
