Half of the second-round pairings for the 2022 Masters are now on the course with afternoon grouping itching to get started on their second sets of 18 holes. While all competitors will be playing alongside the same peers as they did Thursday, start times were flipped for Friday's action as Augusta National prepares to narrow the field ahead of the weekend. From top to bottom and early to late, the intrigue for the second of this week's four rounds of play looks to be not only fabulous but growing with each passing hole.

The morning wave in Round 2 is loaded with star power as past champions Bubba Watson, Patrick Reed, Sergio Garcia, Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth are all staggered throughout. The headliner pairings include Johnson with rising star Collin Morikawa and Billy Horschel, Jon Rahm with Patrick Cantlay and Will Zalatoris, and Rory McIlroy and Brooks Koepka in a star-studded threesome next to Matthew Fitzpatrick. They faced temperatures in the 50s along with swirling winds, but while the course has gotten about 10 degrees warmer with the sun high in the sky, the wind has not subsided.

The second wave may be even better as four of the last five Masters champions -- including five-time winner Tiger Woods -- are part of the last groups to go off at Augusta National before we barrel into the weekend. Woods, paired with Louis Oosthuizen and Joaquin Niemann, will only play alongside Niemann as Oosthuizen withdrew before the round. The duo is scheduled to go off at 1:41 p.m. ET, starring in one of the last groups to begin Round 2.

This after Tiger shot a remarkable 71 on Thursday in his first round of professional golf in 17 months. Woods is in contention for his sixth green jacket and appears poised to continue his cuts made streak as a pro at this event.
