ESPN caught a break when the pairings were announced for the first two rounds. At least, it did for Thursday's first round.
Tiger Woods will be teeing off at 1:42 p.m. on Thursday and playing with Matt Kuchar and K.J. Choi the first two days. They will tee off at 10:30 a.m. on Friday meaning they will finish up before ESPN's coverage comes on the air that day.
The first pairing Thursday is Nathan Green (Australia), Heath Slocum and Louis Oosthuizen. The final group that ay is Adam Scott, David Duval and Rick Barnes.
