2022 Masters tee times, pairings: Complete field, groups, schedule for Round 1 at Augusta National

The 2022 Masters is set to get underway Thursday, but even the first round of play could not avoid the inclement weather that has plagued Augusta National early in the week.

Due to thunderstorms early in the morning, the entire day's schedule has been delayed 30 minutes.

Let's hope that's the only delay as the field of 91 golfers is aiming to complete Round 1 with a full set of 18 holes ensuring there are no further postponements as there have been earlier in the week.

At this point, it's even more important to find out when the golfers will actually take the course for Round 1 on Thursday.

Barring further weather delays, the tee times and groups that were released for first- and second-round action should appeal to patrons and viewers.

Augusta National spread the wealth around proportionately ahead of the first 36 holes of the most majestic tournament in the sport. 

 The morning/afternoon splits might face significantly different conditions be it wetter grass, heavier air or even swirling winds.
