Australian Masters champion Adam Scott will tee off alongside English drawcard Justin Rose in one of the feature groups for the first two rounds of this week's Australian Open in Sydney.

World No 4 Rose and seventh-ranked Scott are the top two players in the 156-man field and will tee off at 9.10am (NZ time) in Thursday's opening round at The Lakes.

Rose and Scott will be joined by Chinese No 1 Liang Wen-Chong.

Eight-times major champion Tom Watson has been paired with defending champion Greg Chalmers and rising star Jake Higginbottom in the marquee afternoon grouping on Thursday, hitting off at 2.10pm.

Other high-profile groupings announced today include former champions Geoff Ogilvy and John Senden alongside Mathew Goggin at 7am and the trio of Marc Leishman, Robert Allenby and 14-year-old Chinese sensation Guan Tianlang off at midday.

Leishman was Australia's only winner on the 2012 US PGA Tour, while Tianlang will next year become the youngest-ever player to contest the US Masters at Augusta after winning the recent Asia-Pacific Amateur title.
