AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Tiger Woods got a featured time for his first round Thursday in the Masters, playing just behind defending champion Charl Schwartzel and just ahead of No. 1 ranked Luke Donald.

Woods will play his first two rounds with Miguel Angel Jimenez of Spain and Sang-Moon Bae of South Korea. They are scheduled to tee off on Augusta National at 10:35 a.m. EDT.

Two-time champion Phil Mickelson drew the last tee time of the day, playing with Hunter Mahan and Peter Hanson in a 1:53 p.m. pairing.

The tournament opens at 7:40 a.m. when Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus tee off as ceremonial starters. They will be joined for the first time by Gary Player.
