2019 USPGA tee times & pairings
It's Tiger... and who else?
Tiger Woods, in his first outing since his Masters victory will be teeing it up with Francesco Molinari and title holder, Brooks Koepka, for the opening two rounds of this week’s US PGA Championship.
They will be off early (8.24am local time) at Bethpage Black, as the defending champion Koepka looks to repeat his Bellerive triumph in the company of the resurgent Tiger Woods.
If Koepka can achieve back-to-back victories he will emulate Woods, a four-time former champion, and twice back-to-back title winner in 1999 and 2000 and then again in 2006 and 2007.
Other supergroups include Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson and Jason Day (1:38pm local time) and Jon Rahm, Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth (1:16pm).
Justin Rose will tee it up with Rickie Fowler and Bubba Watson, whilst Sergio Garcia plays with Kelly Kraft and Adam Scott.
