AUGUSTA, Ga. (KWWL) -

Tiger Woods got a featured time for his first round Thursday in the Masters, playing just behind defending champion Charl Schwartzel and just ahead of No. 1 ranked Luke Donald.

Woods will play his first two rounds with Miguel Angel Jimenez of Spain and Sang-Moon Bae of South Korea. They are scheduled to tee off at Augusta National at 10:35 a.m. EDT.

The tournament opens at 7:40 a.m. when Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus tee off as ceremonial starters. They will be joined for the first time by Gary Player.

In other news from Augusta, Dustin Johnson withdrew from the Masters because of a lingering back injury that he aggravated while lifting a jet ski last week, according to his agent.
