At the PGA Championship, Tiger Woods was grouped with Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth.

When the PGA Championship begins on Thursday at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Okla., there will be a lot of star power packed into one grouping.

Tiger Woods' quest for a fifth PGA Championship title is already exciting, but it's only going to get more so now that it's been revealed he'll be teamed with Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth for the first two rounds.

On Thursday, the threesome will tee off on No. 10 at 9:11 a.m. ET in the first round.

If Woods wins this weekend, it will be his 83rd PGA Tour victory, making him the most successful golfer in Tour history. With 82 wins, he is tied with Sam Snead.

Since returning to the Tour this year, the 46-year-old has competed in two major events. In April, he competed in the Masters for the first time since suffering career-threatening leg injuries in a vehicle accident in 2021. Woods was visibly in agony during the final round of the Augusta National, but declared at the start of the week that his surgically repaired right leg was feeling much better.

The last time Woods won the PGA Championship was in 2007 at the Southern Hills course.

The top-ranked trio of Scottie Scheffler, Jon Rahm, and Collin Morikawa, who will tee off on No. 1 at 2:36 p.m. ET on Thursday, are among the other prominent groups to begin the event. At 2:14 p.m. ET, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, and Patrick Cantlay will tee off on No. 1 to begin the first round.
