Tiger Paired With Kuchar, Choi In Afternoon


The answer is Matt Kuchar and K.J. Choi at 1:42 p.m. Thursday.

That's who Tiger Woods will play with in the first two rounds of the Masters, ending the speculation about who he would be paired with in his return to competitive golf.

After all the guesswork about whether he'd be with friends or perhaps an old-timer, Woods will be in the second-to-last pairing in the first round with two solid players, though neither is considered a star.

The tee time works well for television. ESPN's first-round broadcast begins at 4 p.m., allowing the network to show Woods playing the back nine. It will also be allowed to cut into its regular programming to show his opening tee shot.

Woods, Choi and Kuchar will play at 10:35 a.m. on Friday.

Other high-profile pairings include Ernie Els, Anthony Kim and Ryo Ishikawa at 10:13 a.m.; Phil Mickelson, Robert Allenby and Yong-Eun Yang at 10:35 a.m.; Camilo Villegas, Kenny Perry and Rory McIlroy at 12:36 p.m.; and, Fred Couples, Sergio Garcia and Shingo Katayama at 12:58 p.m.

Here's the full list of pairings.

Hmmm... David Toms is in the 8:34 AND 8:45 group. How'd he pull that off?

Bad move putting Jack & Arnie out there first. Love 'em, but the 87s they will both post is going to slow everybody down.

Lighten up on the Tiger Woods reporting. People are fed up with him. Report the daily leaders and when the masters is over post the winner and other than that leave it alone.

And Green's unabashed hero worship of ElDrICK continues. Scheeze, Green, enough already.

Folks this is a golf blog. If you dont care about golf, or the Masters then dont take the time to read it, let alone make absurd comments.

The only thing I hate about this year's coverage is the Tiger weepfest. Coverage will be 80% Tiger and the rest will be the course and rest of the field. I may end up skipping it altogther this year.

Gee-whiz, read the comments you oaf. It's that people are fed up with Green's drooling all over Tiger. Get a clue, Zero, get a clue.

2:39: This is a "gold blog" that's showing up on the front page of the Observer over and over again. Yeah, we really are tired of hearing about Tiger over and over again.

Don't want us to read it? Maybe post some "real" news.

C,mon Charlotte, y'all gotta know more about the Masters than these posts suggest. Half of these comments would get you kicked out of GA.
