2013 Memorial Tournament: Tee times, TV schedule for Thursday

USA TODAY Sports

Tiger Woods didn't mind golfing alongside Fred Couples last year as he won at the Memorial Tournament, and he's paired with him again this year. There are other golfers too, though: Rory McIlroy tees off with Bubba Watson and Justin Rose.

All eyes will be on Tiger Woods at Muirfield Village, as he tries to take home his sixth title at Jack Nicklaus' course in Dublin, Ohio.

In case you haven't heard, Woods is the favorite. Tiger Woods, Tiger Woods. Tiger Woods Tiger Woods Tiger Woods. He's the No. 1 golfer in the world, he's won four times in six events this season -- three of the last four -- and he's once again the center of the golfing universe. As Emily Kay wrote, he's paired with Fred Couples and Keegan Bradley, not the worst group of guys to golf with -- especially considering Woods won last year at Muirfield after first-round pairing with Couples. They tee off at 1:16 p.m. ET Thursday.

The other blockbuster grouping tees off at 8:26 a.m., featuring two of the world's top four golfers. Rory McIlroy, is the most notable of the bunch, as he some sort of success in the 2013 season, and he's with 2012 Masters winner Bubba Watson and 2010 Memorial winner Justin Rose, the world's No. 4 golfer.

Other groups to watch include the trio of 2013 Masters winner Adam Scott with Ernie Els and Charl Schwartzel (8:15 a.m.), Matt Kuchar, Webb Simpson and Hunter Mahan (1:05 p.m.) and Sang-Moon Bae, two weeks removed from a tourney win at the Byron Nelson Championship, golfing with Nick Watney and D.A.
