PGA: Tigerwoods, Rory Mcllroy and Justin Thomas in same group for PGA championship
McIlroy is a four-times major champion, including the 2012 and 2014 PGA Championships, while Thomas is defending champion after last year's triumph at Quail Hollow in North Carolina.
Woods, the winner of 14 majors, remains the game's biggest drawcard despite a long drought in the four championships that comprise the grand slam.
They will tee off at 8.23 a.m. local time at Bellerive in St. Louis on Thursday (1323 GMT).
Quality afternoon groupings will not be in short supply, with this year's three major winners Patrick Reed (Masters), Brooks Koepka (U.S. Open) and Francesco Molinari (British Open) playing together at 1.15 p.m. (1815 GMT).
The other glamour afternoon group will comprise world number one Dustin Johnson along with fellow major champions Bubba Watson and Adam Scott, teeing off at 12.53 p.m. (1753 GMT).
