Masters 2016: Thursday’s tee times, pairings, and TV schedule

While the 2016 golf season is already in full swing, many fans, including myself, believe that the real season begins when the greatest players in the world take the course at Augusta National for the Masters. In just a few short hours, this year’s festivities will begin and it is safe to say that the entire golf world is ready to begin.

Last year’s champion, Jordan Spieth, returns as he looks to return to the champions’ circle with his second straight green jacket after taking the world by storm as a 22-year-old sensation in 2015. 45-year-old Phil Mickelson also takes to the course as he looks to bring home his first jacket since 2010 in what is quite possibly his final year in the sport.

With a lineup including world No. 1 Jason Day, Adam Scott, and Louis Oosthuizen, it is sure to be a fun weekend for all. Here is where you can watch the entire event, tee times, and pairings for the 2016 Masters.
