Pre-tournament favourite Tiger Woods is paired with Luke Donald for the first couple of days of The Masters.

World number one Tiger Woods has been drawn alongside Englishman Luke Donald for the opening two days of this week's Masters in Augusta.

Donald, himself a former world number one, is regarded as a 35/1 shot with the majority of bookmakers to end his wait for a Major on Sunday afternoon. Meanwhile, Woods is the favourite as a 9/2 chance.

The duo will be joined on days one and two by 34-year-old American Scott Piercy.

Elsewhere, defending champion Bubba Watson has been drawn alongside Europe's Ryder Cup hero Ian Poulter, with Steven Fox completing that trio.

The first three to go out on Thursday will include 55-year-old Scot Sandy Lyle, who won the event back in 1988. He will be accompanied by the American duo of John Peterson and Nathan Smith.

Another notable grouping involves 2011 champion Charl Schwartzel, Webb Simpson and Peter Hanson.
