For a full list of groups and tee times, you can head on over to Golf.com to check that out.

Thursday, Hole 1/ Friday, Hole 10:

10:33 a.m./4:33 p.mAngel Cabrera, Phil Mickelson, & Bubba Watson

A fun group of former Masters champions. The ultimate boom-or-bust group.

This is must watch T.V. to see Watson give Ted Scott an earful, Mickelson working his magic around the greens and to see Cabrera light up a stogie.

11:17 a.m./5:17 p.m: Francesco Molinari, Brandt Snedeker, & Henrik Stenson

Francesco Molinari and Brandt Snedeker have been on fire of late. Henrik Stenson looks as though he has finally, fully recovered over an illness he suffered around Masters week.

11:39 a.m./5:39 p.m: Byeong-Hun An, Russell Henley, & Brooks Koepka

All three golfers have played here competitively at Chambers Bay when the course hosted the 2010 U.S. Amateur Open. Five years later and they are back playing in the professional U.S. Open Championship.

Byeong-Hun An is coming in with a lot of confidence on the back of his win at the BMW PGA Championship.

Koepka won back in February at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and is currently in the hunt at the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Henley doesn’t have a win this year, but he has been rock solid all year making the the cut in 14 of 16 tournaments.

Thursday, Hole 10/Friday, Hole 1:

11:06 a.m./5:06 p.m: Matt Kuchar, Hideki Matsuyama, & Graeme McDowell

Hideki Matsuyama has to be the favorite in this group as Matt Kuchar has been shaky this year and Graeme McDowell has been pretty poor. That might not change this week given the length of Chambers Bay.

11:17 a.m./ 5:17 p.m: Sergio Garcia, Dustin Johnson, & Adam Scott

I don’t usually put too much stock into who is playing with whom, but in this case I think it might it might apply. Sergio Garcia and Dustin Johnson are friends and are both sponsored by Adidas.

I remember them playing together at the 2013 Masters. They both were playing well and really feeding off each other. Something like that could happen this week and Adam Scott could be a beneficiary of that as well. That’s something unorthodox and unusual to watch out for.

11:28 a.m./5:28 p.m: Martin Kaymer, Rory McIlroy, & Gunn Yang

As is customary the U.S. Open Champion and the U.S. Open Amateur Champion are playing together. Rounding at the threesome is the number one golfer in the world. Rory McIlroy will look to get back on track as he is coming in missing back-to-back cuts.

11:39 a.m./5:39 p.m: Jamie Donaldson, Chris Kirk, & Patrick Reed

Chris Kirk is gaining a lot of steam and buzz for his recent play. We all know that Patrick Reed is a fiery guy. I wonder if Jamie Donaldson will bring up the Ryder Cup? Maybe get Reed off his game a little bit.

11:50 a.m./5:50 p.m: Keegan Bradley, Kevin Na, & Webb Simpson

Watching both Keegan Bradley and Kevin Na set up their pre-shot routine will be worth the price of admission.

Thursday, Hole 1/Friday, Hole 10:

5:17 p.m./11:17 a.m: Jason Day, Justin Rose, & Jordan Spieth

This is the best threesome of the tournament on paper. We’ll see if that actually plays out on the course. Jason Day is struggling, but he could potentially go low if the winds are calm enough. Justin Rose and Jordan Spieth will get to reacquaint themselves. They’ve haven’t seen each other since Sunday at The Masters.

5:28 p.m./11:28 a.m: Rickie Fowler, Louis Oosthuizen, & Tiger Woods

Having Louis Oosthuizen and Tiger Woods together may be beneficial. They both have been plagued with a lot injuries and they can pass notes to each other. What kind of injuries they have, who they see, etc.

Rickie Fowler in the spotlight and playing with Tiger is nothing new for him. Fowler should thrive under the spotlight.

5:39 p.m./11:39 a.m: Zach Johnson, Ian Poulter, & Jimmy Walker

A nice threesome of different styles. Jimmy Walker the bomber has had his doubts about Chambers Bay, the outspoken Ian Poulter is keeping quiet until he plays Chambers Bay, and Zach Johnson, the grinder, will have a hard time due to his lack of distance.

Thursday, Hole 10/Friday, Hole 1:

5:17 p.m./11:17 a.m: Paul Casey, Billy Horschel, & Lee Westwood

This is a fantastic group of ball-strikers. When all three are on they are fun to watch.

5:28 p.m./11:28 a.m: Bill Haas, Hunter Mahan, & Charl Schwartzel

Not the sexiest group, but a group of good golfers nonetheless. All three quietly go about their business.
