Masters 2012 Tee Times And Pairings: Large Field Set For Plenty Of Third-Round Drama

Saturday of Masters' week is known as "moving day" around Augusta National Golf Club. After two rounds, the top of the leaderboard is stocked with superstar talents, young and old, who should provide plenty of drama over the final 36 holes.

But anyone who makes the cut at The Masters has a chance to make a run and contend, but they have to catch fire early on Saturday. Tiger Woods finds himself in that position, teeing off at 10:45 a.m. ET and looking to make a move up the board so he has a shot standing on No. 10 tee come Sunday.

The last hour of tee times will provide a full afternoon of excitement on CBS. It starts with Phil Mickelson going off at 1:45 p.m ET with fellow past champion and veteran Vijay Singh. Mickelson rebounded nicely from his rough first round with a 68 on Friday that puts him in prime position heading into the weekend.

Rounding out the day will be co-leaders Fred Couples and Jason Dufner. Couples made a charge up the board on Friday, moving up 28 spots with a throwback 67 at his favorite course. They'll have plenty in front of them, however, with Lee Westwood, Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia, and Bubba Watson just some of the talents who can instantly put the pressure on and go low early.
