Rory McIlroy has been grouped alongside former Ryder Cup teammate Martin Kaymer and Bill Haas for the opening two rounds of the 80th Masters Tournament which begins later this week.

Ian Poulter and double Masters winner Bubba Watson are joined by Branden Grace, while 2013 victor Adam Scott will play with Americans Kevin Kisner and Brooks Koepka. Zach Johnson, who won at Augusta in 2007 and added his second headline triumph at The Open last year following a four-hole play-off, will compete with Rickie Fowler and Chinese amateur Cheng Jin. Phil Mickelson is paired with Marc Leishman and Henrik Stenson. Justin Rose has been drawn alongside Jamie Donaldson and Daniel Berger.
