Tiger Woods won't be in attendance this weekend at the Players Championship but there will still be some big time groups.

Here's a look at Thursday tee times and pairings:

Patrick Reed, Jason Dufner, and Luke Donald (8:08 AM) -- I'm sure Dufner and Reed will have a lot of things to talk about. Donald might have to mediate.

Zach Johnson, Jordan Spieth, and Graeme McDowell (8:18 AM) -- Great group to follow here. Three of the most fun on-course guys and tons of stones in this pairing.

Rory McIlroy, Harris English, and Justin Rose (8:29 AM) -- All of the sweet swings. All of them.

Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson, and Dustin Johnson (8:39 AM) -- There might be some under-the-table stuff going on in this threesome. If you know what I mean.

Adam Scott, Steve Stricker, and Rickie Fowler (1:39 PM) -- Stricker isn't going to know what to do with all the 20-something females trailing these guys.

Matt Kuchar, Bubba Watson, and Jimmy Walker (1:49 PM) -- Six tour wins so far this season from these three guys. Pretty impressive.
