Round 1 of the 2021 Masters will begin like it always does, just without a familiar face. Golf legends Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player will get the tournament started with their honorary tee shots at 7:45 a.m. In place of the late Arnold Palmer, who passed away in 2016, Lee Elder will join Nicklaus and Player on the first tee.

Reigning champion Dustin Johnson gets his day started at 10:30 a.m. alongside Lee Westwood and amateur Tyler Strafaci. Jordan Spieth, who won last week at the Valero Texas Open and enters the Masters as one of the top favorites, goes off at 2 p.m. with Cameron Smith and Collin Morikawa.

Players champion Justin Thomas continues his quest toward a first green jacket at 1:48 p.m. alongside Tony Finau and Louis Oosthuizen. Jordan Spieth, Cameron Smith, and Collin Morikawa finish off the day with the final tee time at 2 p.m.
