Tiger grouped with Justin Rose and Jordan Spieth at US Open

US Open

The tee times for the 119th US Open at Pebble Beach have been announced, with Tiger Woods set to tee off alongside Justin Rose and Jordan Spieth on Thursday.

Woods, who ended an 11-year major drought with a memorable victory at the Masters this past April, returns to the scene of his historic 15-shot US Open win in 2000, and will have two fellow US Open champions for company in Spieth and Rose.

Any expectations of a repeat of that unprecedented performance in 2000 seem unlikely, however. Woods missed the halfway cut at the PGA Championship last month, although he later revealed he was hampered by illness.

He looked a lot better as he finished tied-ninth at The Memorial last week, but Woods would be the first to admit a runaway double-digit shot win probably isn’t on the cards.

Spieth, meanwhile, has struggled for form in the last 18 months but looks to be returning to something like his best in recent weeks, while Rose has been pretty quiet since winning the Farmers Insurance Open back in January.

Elsewhere, defending champion Brooks Koepka, the world’s most in-form golfer, finds himself in the company of reigning Open champion Francesco Molinari and US Amateur winner Viktor Hovland.

As for Rory McIlroy, he will be joined by fellow Ryder Cup star Jon Rahm of Spain and Australian World No 24 Marc Leishman.

McIlroy heads at 10:51am local time (15:51 BST) on Thursday, with Phil Mickelson, 2016 champion Dustin Johnson and the last man to win the US Open at Pebble Beach, Graeme McDowell, following two groups later.

Tommy Fleetwood is out in the next group with Sergio Garcia and Hideki Matsuyama.
