Thurs. 9:14 a.m./Fri. 11:59 a.m.: Danny Willett, Brandt Snedeker, Takumi Kanaya

Kanaya, winner of the Asia-Pacific Amateur, grew up idolizing fellow Japanese player Hideki Matsuyama. This week, he’ll play beside 2017 Masters champion Willett as well as Snedeker, whose best Masters finish was a T-3 in 2008.

Thurs. 10:31 a.m./Fri. 1:16 p.m.: Patrick Reed, Webb Simpson, Viktor Hovland

There’s tradition here, of course. Hovland, the reigning U.S. Amateur champion, will play beside defending Masters champion Reed. Simpson, a five-time PGA Tour winner, rounds out the group.

Thurs. 11:37 a.m./Fri. 8:41 a.m.: Trevor Immelman, Martin Kaymer, Devon Bling

Ortiz gained entry by winning the Latin America Amateur earlier this year. He will be the only player from Mexico in the field, and will play alongside Langer, who – for the record – won both of his Masters titles before Ortiz was born in 1995. Langer earned the green jacket in 1985 and in 1993. Wallace, an Englishman, rounds out the group.

Thurs. 12:43 p.m./Fri. 9:36 a.m.: Vijay Singh, Billy Horschel, Jovan Rebula

Rebula, the British Amateur champion, will play alongside 2000 Masters champion Singh, as well as Horschel, who has won on the PGA Tour five times.
