The Masters rolled on Friday morning with a featured group of former Masters winner Zach Johnson, Ian Poulter and Matt Kuchar.
While all three are great golfers, fans weren’t pleased with the featured paring when Tiger Woods’ tee time approached. Woods teed off at 1:49 p.m. ET, but wasn’t shown making his first tee shot due to the Masters’ website coverage of the tournament.
Fans sitting at home hoping to watch Tiger were forced to watch two different featured groups. One of those featured groups needed to finish their rounds before Tiger’s grouping of he, Haotong Li and Jon Rahm were showcased.
Those wanting to watch Tiger weren’t happy.
Here’s just some of the reaction on Twitter.
Imagine not being able to watch Tiger Woods play in the Masters but being forced to watch Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar?

Clearly the fans all want to watch Tiger do his thing on the golf course Friday afternoon.
The featured pairing of Kuchar, Johnson and Poulter is set to wrap up play any minute now, which means Woods’ pairing will be on the course soon enough.
However, missing his first few holes of the day won’t sit well with fans hoping to see him in contention at a major for the first time in months.
Stay tuned for the latest from the Masters, including Tiger’s score.
