The European Tour returns after two weeks off with the D+D Real Czech Masters and reigning champion Andrea Pavan will kick off his defence at 7.55am in Prague.

Italian Pavan produced a stunning back nine 12 months ago as he came home in 31 to overhaul three time Major Championship winner Padraig Harrington and claim his maiden European Tour title by two strokes.

Pavan will start on back nine alongside Bernd Wiesberger and home favourite Stanislav Matus at the Albatross Golf Resort on Thursday.

Harrington, who has 15 European Tour titles to his name, will hope to go one better this time around and will begin his challenge ten minutes later at the tenth alongside fellow Ryder Cup stars Lee Westwood and Thomas Pieters.

Four time Major Champion Ernie Els begins his first D+D Real Czech Masters tournament in strong company at 1.05pm, playing with 2018 Ryder Cup winning Captain Dane Thomas Bjørn and England's Eddie Pepperell.

Tom Lewis, who finished sixth in Prague last year, is alongside of three time European Tour winner Brandon Stone and rising star Robert MacIntyre at 1.15.

South African Hadyn Porteous kicks off his tournament at 12.55 with Englishman Andrew Johnston and Wales' Jamie Donaldson.
