Masters 2012 Tee Times: Pairings and Predictions for Sunday
He's in a great position to pull that off after firing a 66 on Saturday to move into second place—just one stroke off Peter Hanson's lead.
The results mean that Mickelson and Hanson will be the final group on the course on Sunday. The two certainly aren't strangers—they played the first two rounds of this tournament together. We will get into the predictions in a bit, but first, check out a complete list of Sunday's tee times here or just browse some of the more notable pairings below.
Notable Tee Times and Pairings (all times ET)
11:30 a.m. Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh
12:00 p.m. Rory McIlroy, Graeme McDowell

Hanson Will Collapse
Hanson was brilliant on Saturday...too brilliant. He now finds himself squarely in the spotlight as the leader entering the final round. This will all be more than Hanson can handle.
This is only Hanson's fourth major tournament and just his second trip to Augusta. That lack of experience is going to doom him.
With the Sunday pins tucked away, it will help golfers to have intimate experience of how these tricky greens will play. Hanson is going to have a hard time sticking the ball close, and then, he's going to have a hard time putting on the sloped surfaces.
Combine that with the pressure, the attention and his intense desire to win, and Hanson will start pressing. It will all combine to result in a bad round of golf.
Hunter Mahan Will Be in the Lead at Some Point
After two even-par opening rounds, Mahan found his groove. He fired a 68 on Saturday and looked amazing doing it. He had five birdies and just one bogey.
His putting was solid, and his ball striking was great, which is no surprise; he's been doing this all year.
Mahan will make some noise on Sunday. He will eagle at least one par-five and have a taste of the lead until Lefty passes him.
Phil Mickelson Will Win His Fourth Green Jacket
Who will win?
Mickelson caught absolute fire as he shot a six-under 30 on the back nine on Saturday. However, it was his even-par 36 on the front that tells us as much as his amazing back.
The streaky Mickelson doesn't typically string together pars like that. The fact that he could hold it together for even pars until he got hot is a testament to the overall state of his game.
It tells us he is in complete control of his game, and if he doesn't lose it for a hole or two at Augusta, he is nearly impossible to beat there.
Expect another nice back nine for Lefty as he grabs the lead and holds it.
