Shell Houston Open 2012: TV Schedule, Tee Times, Pairings For Thursday

The Shell Houston Open tees off on Thursday from Redstone Golf Club in Humble, Texas. There's always a mixed approach to the tournament before Masters week, with some players enjoying the routine and opting to play while others take an extra week of rest and practice.

Phil Mickelson has traditionally played in the tournament the week before Augusta, and has had ton of success whether it was the old BellSouth Classic in Atlanta or the more recent Shell Houston Open. He enters this week as the defending champion and will be paired with defending Masters champion, Charl Schwartzel. Rounding out Phil's group will be fan favorite Fred Couples. The Shell was the last tour win for Freddie, when the former Houston Cougar broke down in tears upon winning in 2003 after coming back from persistent back problems. Their pairing tees off at 12:40 on Thursday.

Golf Channel will broadcast all the action on Thursday 3:00 to 6:00 pm ET while SiriusXM will have the radio broadcast on their PGA Tour station from noon to 6:00 pm ET. Complete pairings and tee times below:
