The pairings for this year's Masters at Augusta have been released, with world No. 1 Tiger Woods set to play alongside Luke Donald in the opening two rounds.

Woods - searching for his 15th major and his fifth triumph at The Masters - will have former top-ranked player Donald for company and will be joined by Scott Piercy.

Rory McIlroy has been drawn in the penultimate group with former PGA Championship winner Keegan Bradley and Fredrik Jacobson. The Northern Irishman comes to The Masters on the back of narrowly missing out on victory at the Valero Texas Open.

Defending champion Bubba Watson has Ian Poulter and Steven Fox, but with six majors between them, Phil Mickelson, last year's runner-up Louis Oosthuizen and Martin Kaymer is set to be the group of rounds one and two. Lee Westwood has former champion Mike Weir and Jim Furyk in his group.
