After a opening round Thursday that had its share of both sun and clouds, golfers competing in the 79th annual Masters Tournament return to the Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia for Friday's second round.

With a few exceptions, golfers will head out in threesomes as they try to best the course's "par," or average, score of 72 strokes per round.

At 8:40 a.m. Eastern time Friday, 2007 Masters champion Zach Johnson will tee off with former US Open champions Jim Furyk and Ernie Els. Els is tied for second place at five under par.

Jordan Spieth leads the tournament after the first round, shooting an eight under par 64 on Thursday. Spieth will begin his second round at 9:57 a.m. Friday, along with Sweden's Henrik Stenson and Billy Horschel of the US.

Tiger Woods is at one over par and is paired with Welsh golfer Jamie Donaldson and Jimmy Walker of the US. This threesome will get started Friday at 10:30 a.m.

Charley Hoffman, tied with three others at five under par, will tee off at 10:52 a.m. Eastern time Friday. He's playing with Brian Harman as a twosome.

65-year-old former two-time Masters champ Tom Watson fired a one under par 71 on Thursday. He, along with Gary Woodland and Camilo Villegas, will tee off at 11:14 a.m. Woodland is also at one under par after the first round.

Englishman Justin Rose, who won the 2013 US Open, is also at five under par after Thursday's round. He'll tee off Friday at 12:42 p.m. with defending Masters champion Bubba Watson and defending US Amateur champ Gunn Yang of South Korea.

Sitting at one under par, defending British Open and PGA champion Rory McIlroy will start his second round at 1:48 p.m. Friday. Three-time former Masters winner Phil Mickelson, who shot a two under 70 Thursday, and Ryan Moore will join him.

Just like Thursday, you can watch live action via video stream at beginning at 10:45 a.m. Eastern Friday. Live television coverage starts at 3 p.m. on ESPN.
