Choi, Kuchar to play with Tiger for first two rounds at Masters

7:57 am on 7 April 2010

There's been unprecedented interest in the draw for this week's Masters golf tournament in Augusta with most of the elite field preferring not to play alongside Tiger Woods in his comeback event after a five months layoff.

Several prominent players including Phil Mickelson and Stewart Cink had volunteered to play alongside the world number one, but Masters officials have drawn Woods with the South Korean K.J. Choi and fellow American Matt Kuchar for the first two rounds, and they'll be the second to last group to tee off on Friday morning.

Michael Campbell, possibly playing in his last Masters, tees off just before three o'clock Friday morning, and his playing partners are the Englishman Simon Dyson, and American Ben Crane.
