Rory McIlroy’s quest to win a first Masters title at Augusta National will get under way at 16:15 BST on Thursday.

The Northern Irishman will play with fancied American Rickie Fowler in a group that will follow four-time winner Tiger Woods and Jon Rahm (16:04).

World number one Justin Rose tees off at 18:49 with three-time champion Phil Mickelson and American Justin Thomas.

England’s Paul Casey plays with 2015 winner Jordan Spieth, and US Open and PGA Championship holder Brooks Koepka.

The eye-catching grouping will be the last to tee off on Thursday, at 19:00, while defending champion Patrick Reed will start his tournament at 15:31.

McIlroy, 29, needs the Masters title to complete a career Grand Slam of majors and starts the event as favourite with bookmakers.

Should he win, he will join an elite group of five players – Jack Nicklaus, Woods, Gary Player, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen to win each of golf’s biggest prizes at least once.
