Pairings are determined by the order of finish from the previous day. When players are tied, the first to post that score and after all other players are done, if that person is tied with 4 other people, being first to post that score makes him the last person to start the next day. His/Her playing partner would be the player who was the second player to post that same score, and so on. As is the case with today's pairing of Jim Furyk and Tiger Woods, Furyk was the first one in the clubhouse Friday at -1 and Tiger was the second one in with the days best total score.

Lets say there are 6 players on the table and the button (Dealer) is at player A's location. The button then moves with each hand to the next player (From player A to player B etc). Once the button reaches player A again, the round is finished and a new one starts.
