Masters pairings announced

The Masters pairings have been released and there are no shortage of big names in the star-studded field.

There are no fewer than eight former champions in field.

Defending champion Adam Scott is paired up with US Amateur champion Matthew Fitzpatrick and US PGA Championship winner Jason Dufner.

Meanwhile, Phil Mickelson enters the Masters for the first time since 2010 without a win under his belt. However, that was the same year he won at Augusta.

The American is paired up with four time major winner Ernie Els and Englishman Justin Rose, who is yet to finish outside the top 40 in eight Masters appearances.
