2018 Masters tee times, pairings: Thursday Round 1 starts for Tiger Woods, field

There will be no better sports drama this weekend than what goes down at Augusta National for the 2018 Masters. A star-studded field of 87 men is ready to take on one of golf's toughest tests, and it all started Thursday morning in Georgia.

Of course, this year, all eyes are on Tiger Woods as he aims to make a successful return to the Masters. Woods has been playing some great golf this year, collecting a pair of top-five finishes in preparation for Augusta, where he will be playing for the first time since 2015.

Aside from Woods, though, there is a lot of star power on the course trying to fend off Big Cat's attempt to add another major win to his collection, which is why this year's event is being billed as a can't-miss showcase. 

Here's a look at the tee times and pairings for Thursday as the 2018 Masters gets underway.
