Tee times for the 2020 U.S. Open at Winged Foot are out, and there are some absolutely loaded groups for what will almost assuredly be the toughest test of golf this season beginning this Thursday in southern New York. The USGA always creates interesting trios, and that's true again this year with most of the best players in the world in attendance at the 2020-21 season's first major championship.

 

The threesome of Tiger Woods, Justin Thomas and Collin Morikawa headlines the groups but it's far from the only tee time worth keeping an eye on this week. Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott and Justin Rose will play together on Thursday and Friday as well. So will Bryson DeChambeau, Tony Finau and world No. 1 Dustin Johnson. World No. 2 Jon Rahm is grouped with Phil Mickelson and Paul Casey.

 

The group that maybe most intrigues me is the Oklahoma State trio of Rickie Fowler, Viktor Hovland and Matthew Wolff. It seems unlikely that any of them would win the event this year, but all three are currently ranked in the top 50 in the world and should be expected to make the cut.

 

Starting from the first tee:

 

7:56 a.m. -- Hideki Matsuyama, Patrick Reed, Jordan Spieth
8:07 a.m. -- Collin Morikawa, Justin Thomas, Tiger Woods

 

1:16 p.m. -- Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson, Tony Finau
1:27 p.m. -- Phil Mickelson, Paul Casey, Jon Rahm

Starting from the tenth tee:

 

7:45 a.m. -- Tyrrell Hatton, Henrik Stenson, Danny Willett
7:56 a.m. -- Webb Simpson, Sergio Garcia, Jason Day
8:07 a.m. -- Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott, Justin Rose

 

12:21 p.m. -- Jim Herman, John Pak, Thomas Pieters
12:54 p.m. -- Lee Westwood, James Sugrue, Bubba Watson
1:38 p.m. -- Billy Horschel, Xander Schauffele, Brandt Snedeker
