In today’s afternoon wave, Rickie Fowler and Ricky Barnes will be joined by two-time major champion and fan favorite John Daly, who is playing most of his golf this year on the European Tour (1:20 p.m. ET). Youngster Bud Cauley, in a dash to secure a spot in The Players Championship, plays alongside 2007 Masters champion Zach Johnson and Webb Simpson, a two-time winner in 2011 (1 p.m.).

Three-time major champ Ernie Els, who didn’t play in last weekend’s Masters, gets back on the course with three-time major winner Padraig Harrington and 2011 Fedexcup champion Bill Haas (1:10 p.m.).
