Tiger Woods is back at The Masters for the 2023 tournament. Here are the Tiger Woods Masters tee times for Thursday and Friday with group info and more.
They often say that stars in sports can get so big that they have their own gravitational pull. Such is the case for Tiger Woods in golf. Even if he’s past his prime and fighting just to healthily play four rounds at this stage of his career, the 15-time major winner is still golf’s biggest star and figure. And that’s turned up to 11 at a place like The Masters.
Tiger is a five-time champion at Augusta National Golf Club with his bookending victories spanning an unreal 23 tournaments (1997 and 2019). It’s a special place where he’s thrived virtually every time he’s played, which is why The Masters was the obvious spot for his return in 2022. Now he’s back at Augusta National teeing it up again in 2023.
Woods has been grouped with two of the top players in the world right now, American and Olympic Gold Medalist Xander Schauffele and Norweigian sensation Viktor Hovland. It should be a wildly fun group to follow on Thursday and Friday with a living legend along with two potential contenders.
But when does Tiger play in the first two rounds? Let’s make sure you don’t miss a shot as we look at the Tiger Woods Masters tee times for the start of the tournament.
When does Tiger play? Tiger Woods Masters tee times for Thursday and Friday
Tiger, Xander and Hovland will be teeing off relatively early in the first round on Thursday as their tee time is set for 10:18 a.m. ET. As such, Woods and his group will then tee off late in the second round on Friday with a 1:24 p.m. ET tee time.
For Woods, as he continues to try the sweet spot for his leg as he still deals with the effects from his 2021 car accident, getting the early/late draw at The Masters is huge for him. That should allow him as much time to recover physically as possible and, perhaps, allow him to make the cut at Augusta National once again.
