Tiger Woods will begin his first Masters in three years on Thursday at 10:42 a.m. ET along with Australia’s Marc Leishman and England’s Tommy Fleetwood. Defending champion Sergio Garcia will be in the group at 10:53 a.m., joined by Justin Thomas, who won the PGA Championship, and U.S. Amateur champion Doc Redman. “The feel that you get and the receptions that you get coming to Augusta as a Masters champion is different,” Garcia said Tuesday. “… It’s just a different feeling, it’s a different sensation, and it’s unbelievable. It’s great. I’m enjoying ev ery minute of it and just hoping that I can go out there and play great again and have a chance of defending a green jacket.” The 82nd Masters Tournament will begin with ceremonial tee shots by former Masters champions Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player at 8:15 a.m. The first tee time is at 8:30 a.m. and features Austin Cook, Ted Potter and Wesley Bryan. “I think that this year it feels like you probably have, I don’t know, eight or 10 guys that are in good form, with really good, solid chance of winning,” Garcia said.
