Tiger Woods will begin his quest for a fourth U.S. Open title alongside two other men who know what it takes to win the event.
Thursday the USGA released full-field tee times for next week's tournament at Pebble Beach, leaving open a handful of spots for players who have not yet rounded out the 156-man field. Making his return to the course where he won by a record 15 shots in 2000, Woods will play the first two rounds alongside 2013 U.S. Open champ Justin Rose and 2015 winner Jordan Spieth. They'll tee off at 5:09 p.m. ET Thursday and 11:24 a.m. ET Friday.
Another marquee grouping will include Phil Mickelson, as he renews his quest to round out the final leg of the career Grand Slam. Mickelson won earlier this year at Pebble Beach, and he'll play the first two rounds with Graeme McDowell, who won this event in 2010 the last time it was played at along the Monterey coastline. Rounding out the trio will be 2016 winner Dustin Johnson, as the three will play at 11:13 a.m. Thursday and 4:13 p.m. Friday.
Brooks Koepka will be looking to become just the second player to win three U.S. Open titles in a row, and he enters after successfully defending his title at last month's PGA Championship. Just like at Bethpage, Koepka will play the first two rounds with reigning Open champ Francesco Molinari, but instead of Woods they'll be joined by U.S. Amateur champ Viktor Hovland. Koepka's three-peat bid will start at 4:47 p.m. Thursday, while the group will tee off at 11:02 a.m. Friday.
Rory McIlroy earned the first of his four major titles at the 2011 U.S. Open, and he'll play the first two rounds at Pebble Beach with former Ryder Cup teammate Jon Rahm and Australia's Marc Leishman. They will tee off Thursday at 10:51 a.m. and 4:36 p.m. on Friday.
