The Masters 2020 tee times: Tiger Woods, Bryson DeChambeau, Rory McIlroy set to start at Augusta – The Independent

Bryson DeChambeau, the tournament favourite, will begin his Masters challenge alongside the world No2 Jon Rahm from the 10th tee on Thursday.

DeChambeau won the US Open earlier this year to vindicate his unique methods to the game of golf, and his enormous drives off the tees during practice this week suggest he will be a force to be reckoned with in the battle for the Green Jacket. 

Tiger Woods begins the defence of his crown alongside Irishman Shane Lowry, while Rory McIlroy continues his pursuit of a first Masters title alongside Dustin Johnson, the world No1 also searching for his first Augusta win.

Four-times major champion Brooks Koepka says his nagging health issues are a thing of the past as he gets set to chase a maiden Green Jacket too, following a two-month injury layoff.

Koepka, who finished runner-up to Woods at last year’s Masters, had stem cell therapy injections in his left knee during his layoff to help repair a partially torn patella tendon and also had a cortisone injection in his ailing hip.

“Everything’s fine. I feel normal. Knee feels good. Hip, I haven’t had an issue with,” American Koepka said during a news conference at Augusta National Golf Club. “Nice to have those two months rehabbing in San Diego and getting everything straightened away.”
