The Irishman who won at Royal Portrush in Nothern Ireland two years ago is grouped with U.S. Open champion Jon Rahm and 2010 Open champion Louis Oosthuizen for the first two rounds.

PGA champion Phil Mickelson tees off at 9:48 a.m. ET (2:48 p.m. local time) along with Tyrell Hatton and Kevin Kisner; Xander Schauffele, Robert MacIntyre and Rickie Fowler are at 9:59 a.m. ET; Justin Thomas, Tommy Fleetwood and Adam Scott are at 10:10 a.m. ET; Rory McIlroy, Patrick Reed and Cameron Smith tee off at 10:21 a.m. ET.
