Woods to play with Jamie Donaldson, Jimmy Walker

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) Tiger Woods returns to competition alongside Jimmy Walker and Jamie Donaldson of Wales in the opening two rounds of the Masters.

Walker is the only two-time winner on the PGA Tour this year and is No. 10 in the world. Donaldson won the clinching point for Europe in the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles with his 9-iron to 2 feet to beat Keegan Bradley.

They will go off at 1:48 p.m. EDT Thursday, allowing most of Woods' round to be shown on television.

Woods is playing for the first time since he withdrew after 11 holes at Torrey Pines on Feb. 5.

Rory McIlroy, going after the career Grand Slam, plays with Phil Mickelson and Ryan Moore at 10:41 a.m.
