Yang and Woods drawn together
Defending champion YE Yang and Tiger Woods will play together again at this year’s USPGA Championship.
Defending champion YE Yang has been drawn alongside 14-time major winner Tiger Woods for the first two rounds of next week’s USPGA Championship at Whistling Straits, Wisconsin.
South Korean Yang became the first Asian-born golfer to win a major at last year’s USPGA after winning a duel with Woods.
The duo will tee-off alongside another former PGA Championship winner, Vijay Singh.
The usual pairing of the winners of the three previous majors of the year will once again apply this year, with Masters winner Phil Mickelson, US Open champion Graeme McDowell and Open winner Louis Oosthuizen playing together.
Lee Westwood, who withdrew from the tournament with a calf injury after the second round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, will be replaced by Kevin Sutherland.
Sutherland will tee-off with Ernie Els and Dustin Johnson.
European Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie will play alongside Koumei Oda and Matt Kuchar, while Corey Pavin, his United States counterpart, will go round with Ian Poulter and Camilo Villegas.
Padraig Harrington, the 2008 champion, lines up alongside Davis Love III and John Daly.
