Martin Laird won't be playing with a past Masters Tournament champion, after all. On Thursday, 1998 Masters winner Mark O'Meara withdrew from the competition due to a pulled muscle in his rib cage.

Laird and O'Meara were set to tee off at 9:08 a.m. MT with Chez Reavie. Both Laird and Reavie are currently on the course and are at even-par following four-stroke performances on a par-4 hole.
Martin Kaymer and Henrik Stenson are currently in the lead at 2-under par, but Kaymer is through 10 holes while Stenson has finished just four.
