1st and 2nd round tee times for The Masters are set


Former Coastal Carolina golfer and the world’s number 1 ranked golfer, Dustin Johnson will tee off Thursday at noon on hole 1 in Augusta.

The way the 2020 Masters is organized will look a bit different this November than it normally does in April, but one thing remains the same. Augusta National still nailed this year’s groups and spread interest throughout the day on Thursday for Round 1 and Friday for Round 2.

Due to the lack of daylight this year, groups will go off both No. 1 and No. 10 starting at 7 a.m. ET, and the last group of the day will tee off just after noon.

Nobody does pairings as well as Augusta National as they do a fantastic job of sprinkling stars and superstars into different (sometimes unique) groups and create a balanced viewer experience. Early on Thursday, most of the attention will be paid to either the group of Jon Rahm, Bryson DeChambeau and Louis Oosthuizen or the Tiger Woods, Shane Lowry, Andy Ogletree threesome. Woods, the reigning Masters champion, will play with the reigning Open champion (Lowry) and last year’s U.S. Amateur winner (Ogletree).

The afternoon is hot as well with the most prominent group being Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Patrick Cantlay. All are among the 10 biggest favorites to win this year. My favorite group, though, is probably Adam Scott, Collin Morikawa and Tyrrell Hatton. That will be an absolute ball-striking fiesta, those three will put on a show with their iron play.
