Masters flag and scoreboard
The 1st round of the 2020 Masters Tournament is scheduled to begin at 7 a.m. Thursday, moments after Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player hit the ceremonial opening tee shots.

Tiger Woods prepares to open his title defense at 7:55 a.m. EST on the 10th tee as play will begin on both nines at Augusta National

Tiger Woods, the defending champion at the Masters, will be paired with reigning U.S. Amateur champion Andy Ogletree and Shane Lowry, the 2019 British Open winner, in the first round Thursday at Augusta National Golf Club.

Tee times were announced Tuesday for the 84th Masters, which begins Thursday after a seven-month delay because of the coronavirus pandemic. Woods, 44, is seeking his sixth green jacket and a record 83rd PGA Tour victory.

Because of diminished daylight hours, play will commence off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees, beginning at 7 a.m. EST.

Woods will begin his title defense at 7:55 a.m. on No. 10. It is a Masters tradition to pair the defending champion with the reigning U.S. Amateur champion.

Bryson DeChambeau, who brings an enhanced focus on driving distance to Augusta National, also will start on the back nine Thursday in a 7:33 a.m. pairing with Jon Rahm and Louis Oosthuizen.

Another premier pairing will match Dustin Johnson, the world's No. 1-ranked player, with No. 5 Rory McIlroy and No. 10 Patrick Cantlay. They will tee off at noon on No. 1.
