2018 PGA Championship Pairings, Tee Times, TV

The PGA of American has released the pairings and tee times for the opening two rounds of the PGA Championship, and the marquee grouping will include defending champion Justin Thomas, alongside two-time PGA champion Rory McIlroy, and four-time winner Tiger Woods.

If there were a co-marquee threesome it would be the grouping of Jordan Spieth, Jon Rahm, and Justin Rose. All three players are ranked in the world top 10, with three-time major winner Spieth in search of wrapping up the career grand slam with a win in St. Louis. A victory by Rahm would be the first of what many expect to be several major trophies hoisted, while Rose would add a Wannamaker Trophy to his U.S. Open title, and own two of the four majors.

While Thomas is the current PGA title holder, the reigning champs of the three other majors will form another top trio with recent Open Champion Francesco Molinari joining Brooks Koepka (U.S. Open) and Patrick Reed (Masters).

Another star-laden pairing includes three former PGA Champions in Jason Day (2015), Keegan Bradley (2011) and Phil Mickelson (2005).

Finally, another interesting threesome has Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk paired with two players expected to be battling for a captain’s selection in Tony Finau and Xander Schauffele.
