Tiger Woods on Monday at Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill.

AUGUSTA, Ga. – Tiger Woods' quest for a fifth green jacket will begin at 10:45 a.m. Thursday. That's when he'll tee off with Luke Donald and Scott Piercy. Defending Masters champion Bubba Watson will tee off 11 minutes earlier with Ian Poulter and U.S. Amateur champ Steven Fox. Here's some other notable groupings:

• Sandy Lyle, the 1988 Masters champion, will be the first player to follow the ceremonial tee shots of Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player. Lyle will play with John Peterson and U.S. Mid-Amateur champion Nathan Smith.

• Brandt Snedeker, the world's No. 5 player, will play alongside Japan's Ryo Ishikawa, who's playing on a special invitation, and World No. 3 Justin Rose. They'll tee of at 9:17 a.m. Thursday.

• Charl Schwartzel, the 2011 Masters champion, will play with reigning U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson and Peter Hanson, the 54-hole leader at last year's Masters, at 9:39 a.m.

• Ernie Els, the reigning Open Championship winner, will tee off at 12:13 p.m. Thursday with Steve Stricker and Nick Watney.

• Tianlang Guan is paired with the man whose record he broke. Guan, 14, is paired with Matteo Manassero, who played the 2010 Masters as a 16-year-old amateur. They're grouped with two-time Masters champion Ben Crenshaw at 12:24 p.m.

• Two major-less stars – Sergio Garcia and Adam Scott – will play with 2009 Masters champion Angel Cabrera at 12:57 p.m.

• Two fan favorites – Fred Couples and Dustin Johnson – will tee off at 1:08 p.m. with rising South African star Branden Grace.

• Three-time Masters champion Phil Mickelson will play with last year's runner-up, Louis Oosthuizen, and former PGA champion Martin Kaymer in the 1:30 p.m. group.

• Two of the game's young major champions – Rory McIlroy and Keegan Bradley – are playing with Freddie Jacobson in the second-to-last group, which tees off at 1:41 p.m. McIlroy beat Bradley, 2 and 1, in their singles match at last year's Ryder Cup after being rushed to the course in a police car.

• The final group of the day features Jason Dufner, Matt Kuchar and Bill Haas, three players expected to contend for this year's title.
