Masters Sunday filled with interesting pairings


AUGUSTA, Ga. – The Masters champion has come out of the final Sunday pairing 19 out of the last 21 years, making the final round’s anchor two-ball of Peter Hanson and Phil Mickelson the one to watch.

Intriguing pairings can be found further down the tee sheet, however, starting with the noon all-Northern Irish combo of Rory McIlroy, who struggled to a 77 on Day 3, and Graeme McDowell.

Jason Dufner and Fred Couples, who were in the day’s last pairing on Saturday but slipped down the leaderboard, will play together again at 1:20 p.m. (ET), while Tiger Woods heads out with Vijay Singh at 11:30 a.m.
