Masters 2011 Pairings: Michigan's Lion Kim Paired With Jose Maria Olazabal, Davis Love III

By this time of year, most college students are getting ready for final exams and are counting down the days until the end of the semester. University of Michigan student and golfer Lion Kim, on the other hand, is getting ready to play in the 2011 Masters Tournament. Kim earned a spot in the Masters as an amateur after winning the 2010 U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship over David McDaniel. He will become the third golfer from the University of Michigan to compete in the Masters, and he will be the first to ever do so while still on the Wolverines' golf team.

The 2011 Masters pairings were announced earlier today, and Kim will tee off on Thursday as part of Group 25 at 12:31 p.m. Kim is paired with Jose Maria Olazabal and Davis Love III. Olazabal won the 1994 and 1999 Masters. Interestingly enough, he defeated Love III by two strokes to win the 1999 Masters.

Kim's group will tee off at 9:02 a.m. as part of Group 8 for the second round on Friday.
