Tiger Woods is playing in only his second competitive event of the year, and it's arguably the biggest one of the season at the 2024 Masters. Every shot from the 15-time major champion's return to golf will be shown live as Woods tees it up at 3:54 p.m. ET alongside Max Homa and Jason Day Thursday afternoon.

Woods beginning his march to a sixth green jacket was delayed as Augusta National announced Thursday that Round 1 of the 2024 Masters would begin at 10:30 a.m. ET due to heavy rains and thunderstorms. It was originally slated to start at 8 a.m.

Woods' grouping was the first of two afternoon trios that will receive featured group coverage as the final tee time on the golf course will also. It's headlined by 2020 Masters champion Dustin Johnson and rounded out by two-time major champion Collin Morikawa and Tommy Fleetwood at 4:30 p.m.

While the afternoon featured groups hold a bevy of major championships between the six players, it is the morning featured groups which consist of some of the more recent winners on golf's biggest stage. 

Defending Masters champion Jon Rahm got his 2024 Masters underway at 1 p.m. next to reigning U.S. Amateur champion turned professional Nick Dunlap and 2022 U.S. Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick.

Shortly after this grouping stepped onto Augusta National, so did Wyndham Clark, Viktor Hovland and Cameron Smith at 1:24 p.m. Clark, the reigning U.S. Open champion, is making his Masters debut, while Hovland and Smith hope to build on some solid history around Augusta National.

You can take a look at the full featured groups schedule for Thursday as well as the full streaming options for Round 1 below, and you can find the full list of Round 1 tee times here. And don't miss the ceremonial tee shots hit by Honorary Starters Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Tom Watson, who have a combined 11 green jackets among them.
