The Players Championship boasts probably the fifth-best field of the golf season which means good pairings are everywhere. Here are my picks for the five best on Thursday and Friday with Thursday tee times included (all times Eastern):

1. Tiger Woods, Matt Kuchar, Brandt Snedeker (1:49 p.m.) -- A lot of 2013 Masters heartbreak in this group as well.

2. Graeme McDowell, Bubba Watson, Keegan Bradley (8:18 a.m.) -- The only group where everybody has a major.

3. Phil Mickelson, Webb Simpson, Justin Rose (1:28 p.m.) -- So many smiles from Simpson and Mickelson, the gallery will wonder what's wrong with Rose.

4. Adam Scott, Rory McIlroy, Steve Stricker (8:39 a.m.) -- Two of the greatest talents in the last 20 years playing with Tiger's putting coach.

5. Luke Donald, K.J. Choi, Sergio Garcia (1:39 p.m.) -- Strong international group here and Choi and Garcia are former winners.
