Masters Golf Tournament 2011: Pairings, TV Schedule, Tee Times

The month of April brings many wonderful things: Opening Week of the Major League Baseball season (how about them Yankees!), the NCAA Tournament Final Four and the Masters Golf Tournament held at Augusta National Golf Course in Augusta, GA. (I would like to say April brings Spring too, but the New York Mother Nature Bureau has decided that Winter is going to hang on just a bit longer -- yeah, it's snowing in Upstate NY!)

Regardless of unfavorable Spring-sports weather in NY, at least the MLB and The Masters brings the sites of green grass and a warmer future, even though it may be just in HDTV. However, as much as New York sports fans live for baseball's first couple of games, there's no arguing against how golf season makes everyone's seasonal bipolar disorders fade away. The beautiful green images and fake bird noises during CBS' and ESPN's four-day coverage can really lift a New York sports fans' spirits and maybe help some not jump off the George Washington Bridge when the New York Knicks or New York Rangers have an early first-round playoff exit.

That's why, over the course of the next five days, SB Nation New York along with other SB Nation blogs will bring you all the coverage you will need for golf's first major of the year. On Tuesday, SBNY will post the Masters' television schedule, pairings along with the Round 1 and 2 tee times. (All of this is posted below.)

On Wednesday, we will provide a basic preview the 74th edition of the legendary tournament. Then, from Thursday to Sunday there will be daily updates of the leader board and latest news.
