Tournament favourite Dustin Johnson begins his title defence alongside former world number one Lee Westwood – runner-up behind Justin Thomas at the Players Championship last month – and US amateur champion Tyler Strafaci at 10:30am (3:30pm BST).
US Open champion Bryson DeChambeau joins 2013 winner Adam Scott and Max Homa at 1.36pm (6:36pm BST) on Thursday.
European Ryder Cup colleagues Rory McIlroy and Spain's world number three Jon Rahm – boasting three top-10 finishes in the past three Masters – go out alongside four-times PGA Tour winner Xander Schauffele at 10:42am (3:42pm BST).
McIlroy has been working with respected coach Pete Cowen after missing the cut at the Players last month.
The world number 12 is aiming to become only the sixth man in history to win all four Majors in their respective careers with his last Major coming at the 2014 US PGA Championship.
Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods remain the only men to win all four.
“I'm obviously focused on this week, but it's bigger than that," said McIlroy. "It's a journey, right, and it's a journey to try to get back to playing the game the way I know that I can play the game.
“So obviously this week is very important, but I'm still looking beyond that. I'm just at the start of a journey here that I know will get me back to where I want to be.”
