Matt Slocum

The green jacket cannot be won Thursday at the Masters, but it can certainly be lost.

It is essential for the top competitors to remain in the hunt with solid performances in the first round at Augusta because this field is loaded with talent. The only way to compete for a title is to make sure that there aren’t too many top-notch golfers ahead of you on any given day.

With that in mind, here is a look at every tee time for the first day of competition.

Names to Watch in First Round

Phil Mickelson

Chris Carlson

In the history of the sport, there have only been a few players to perform better at Augusta than Phil Mickelson.

However, the three-time champion finished a disappointing 54th in the 2013 Masters with a score of nine over par. That means that a quick start Thursday will be important for the lefty to reestablish his Masters confidence that has led to so many impressive finishes.

Another reason that a fast start is imperative is because Mickelson has dealt with injuries throughout the season. A solid score would likely give him confidence going forward in not only his game but also his health.

At least he won’t have to deal with Tiger Woods, who has ruined Mickelson’s Masters’ chances in the past. Mike O’Malley of Golf Digest pointed this out:

 

Adam Scott

David J. Phillip

If there wasn’t any pressure on the defending Masters champion, then there would be more than only three players in the history of the event to win a repeat green jacket (Tiger Woods, Nick Faldo and Jack Nicklaus). 

Adam Scott typically plays his best golf at the majors, but he will undoubtedly feel the eyes of the gallery upon him when he steps up to the tee Thursday. Much like Mickelson, an impressive first round will give Scott the confidence necessary to move forward and compete for another jacket over the weekend.

 

Dustin Johnson

Dustin Johnson has been one of the best players on the Tour this season with a win and five top-10 finishes, but he withdrew from the Shell Houston Open in his last outing.

Johnson will look to reestablish the momentum that fueled him to so many impressive performances early in the year with a solid first round Thursday. It would also help put the disappointment from Houston firmly in the rear-view mirror.

Another aspect of Johnson’s game that will be interesting to watch is the fact that his brother will be caddying. Johnson discussed as much with John Boyette of the Augusta Chronicle (via the Washington Times):

He’s just starting out, so he’s not giving me any advice, really. It helps me go through the process. I double-check all the yardages, I’m pulling my own clubs. It helps me think a little bit better.

He’s on the bag. If we don’t play good, it’s not his fault. I don’t care what he does. As long as he carries the bag and keeps up with me, we’ll be all right. 

Johnson has never won a major, and he will need a fast start if he hopes to do so at Augusta .
