Tiger Woods has been paired alongside reigning U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell and Australian Robert Allenby in the first two rounds of the Masters at Augusta this week.

Woods, who is without a tournament victory since November 2009 and has slipped down to seventh place in the world rankings, was beaten by Northern Irishman McDowell in a play-off at the Target World Challenge in December.

Defending champion Phil Mickelson -- who warmed up for the tournament by winning the Houston Open on Sunday -- has been drawn alongside Geoff Ogilvy of Australia and American amateur champion Peter Uihlein.

The top two players in the world, Martin Kaymer and Lee Westwood, will face each other on Thursday and Friday where they will be joined by Matt Kuchar.
Germany's Kaymer will be looking to improve on a dismal record at Augusta having not made the cut in all three Masters he has played in so far.
Elsewhere, World Match Play winner Luke Donald plays alongside 1992 winner Fred Couples and Steve Stricker, while Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Jason Day made up a youthful combination.

The tournament will begin with Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus -- 81 and 71 respectively -- acting as honorary starters.
