2022 Masters tee times, pairings: Complete field, groups, schedule for Round 1 at Augusta National

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The 2022 Masters is set to get underway Thursday, but even the first round of play could not avoid the inclement weather that has plagued Augusta National early in the week. Due to thunderstorms early in the morning, the entire day’s schedule has been delayed 30 minutes.

Let’s hope that’s the only delay as the field of 91 golfers is aiming to complete Round 1 with a full set of 18 holes ensuring there are no further postponements as there have been earlier in the week. At this point, it’s even more important to find out when the golfers will actually take the course for Round 1 on Thursday. Barring further weather delays, the tee times and groups that were released for first- and second-round action should appeal to patrons and viewers.

Augusta National spread the wealth around proportionately ahead of the first 36 holes of the most majestic tournament in the sport. From start to finish, there is intrigue abound off the first tee at the first major championship of the year. The morning/afternoon splits might face significantly different conditions be it wetter grass, heavier air or even swirling winds. There was a tornado warning in the area on Tuesday during the practice rounds, and the course was again closed early Wednesday due to heavy thunderstorms in the area.

There are a number of strong groups set for the 10 am and 1 pm ET hours. Here are some of the ones that stand out from the rest of the field.

10:42 am — Kevin Kisner, Daniel Berger and Tommy Fleetwood
10:53 am — Bryson DeChambeau, Cameron Smith, Paul Casey
11:04 am — Tiger Woods, Louis Oosthuizen, Joaquin Niemann
11:15 am — Hideki Matsuyama, Justin Thomas, James Piot (a)
11:26 am — Adam Scott, Scottie Scheffler, Tony Finau

2:00 pm — Dustin Johnson, Billy Horschel, Colin Morikawa
2:11 pm — Will Zalatoris, Patrick Cantlay, Jon Rahm
2:22 pm — Jordan Spieth, Viktor Hovland, Xander Schauffele
2:33 pm — Matthew Fitzpatrick, Brooks Koepka, Rory McIlroy

Augusta National doesn’t normally do the mega-groups thing for the first two days, and while that’s technically true (they didn’t group the top three players in the world), those Spieth-Hovland-Schauffele and Fitzpatrick-Koepka-McIlroy trios are going to be a blast to watch close the first round of action. Up and down the tee sheet, there is a nice amalgamation of many different types of players at various stages of their careers.

Here’s a look at every group that will start play on Thursday at the 86h Masters. Be sure to check out the complete 2022 Masters schedule and coverage guide so you don’t miss a moment of the action this week.
