AUGUSTA, Ga. — The groupings are set for the first two rounds of the Masters Tournament.

Defending champion Adam Scott and his group tee off Thursday at 10:41 a.m. Scott is playing with Jason Dufner and U.S. Amateur champion Matthew Fitzpatrick.

Other groups of interest include the 1:48 p.m. time of Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els and Justin Rose. Those three make up the second-to-last group.

Before then, Jason Day, Dustin Johnson and Henrik Stenson begin at 1:04 p.m.
