AUGUSTA, Ga. | Tiger Woods will be playing the first two days of the Masters with U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell, who rallied from a four-shot deficit to beat Woods in December. Also in their group for the opening two rounds will be Robert Allenby.

Defending champion Phil Mickelson is in the same group with U.S. Amateur champion Peter Uihlein, one of the many traditions at Augusta National. Also in their group is former U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy.

Other notable groups include Martin Kaymer and Lee Westwood, the top two players in the world, joined by Matt Kuchar. Another group features three twentysomethings: Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Jason Day.

Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus again will be honorary starters.
