For the first two rounds of the PGA Championship at Southern Hills, Tiger Woods was paired with Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth.

After winning his third major at The Open in 2017, Spieth has another chance to join Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus, and Tiger Woods as the only players in the modern era to complete the career Grand Slam.

With the 15-time major champion ready to make his first start since returning from career-threatening injuries at The Masters last month, Woods returns to the venue where he won the most recent of his four PGA Championships in 2007.

With the premier group heading off at 8.11 am local time on Thursday (2.11 pm BST) and 1.36 pm (7.36 pm BST) on Friday, McIlroy completes the all-star trio as he attempts to improve on a runner-up performance at Augusta National and break a major drought that dates back to 2014.

Scottie Scheffler has been matched with two-time major winner Collin Morikawa and reigning US Open champion Jon Rahm, the only player in the world rankings who can leapfrog Scheffler this week.

For Rahm to return to world No. 1, he would need a win and Scheffler, who is trying for his fifth win of the year following a strong start to 2022, to finish outside the top five.

Former world No. 1 Adam Scott and four-time major champion Brooks Koepka are paired with Ireland’s Shane Lowry, while former world No. 1 Patrick Cantlay is paired with Ryder Cup colleagues Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas, who won his first major championship in the 2017 competition.
