Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth paired together at Torrey Pines
Also, Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson will play together as well as Rickie Fowler and Ian Poulter.
Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth will play together for the first two rounds of the 2014 Farmers Insurance Open (oh yeah, Jimmy Walker will be there, too).
This course has been (and will be) a sort of measuring stick for both Woods and Spieth. It is the place where Woods has won eight times (tied for most at any course in his career) and the site of Spieth's first tournament as a professional, where he was uncerimoniously cut, no less.
Of course Spieth would go on to have one of the great rookie seasons in PGA Tour history -- one that reminded many of Woods' first full season as a pro in 1997.
I couldn't be more excited about the two being paired in a group with Walker. Any tournament featuring Woods is that much more fun, that much more electric. And I'm starting to feel the same way about Spieth.
It's also the first time they've played together since this classic tweet from Spieth at the Presidents Cup.
Had an Ace today! Tiger didn't care.. he birdied the next 2 on us. Ready to tee it up with #theSavage by my side— Jordan Spieth (@JordanSpieth) October 2, 2013
They'll tee it up at 1:30 PM on Thursday and 12:30 PM on Friday.
Here's a look at some other headline groups:
Keegan Bradley, Brandt Snedeker, and Hunter Mahan (12:20 PM Thursday, 1:20 PM Friday) -- This might be the sneaky-best group to follow on the course. Three of the faster players in the world and all of them are elite.
Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson, and Jason Day (12:30 PM Thursday, 1:30 PM Friday) -- The left handers and Day, I like it. Though I wish we could have gotten a Tiger-Phil-Bubba group, that would have been fantastic.
Billy Horschel, Ian Poulter, and Rickie Fowler (1:20 PM Thursday, 12:20 PM Friday) -- The all-fashion group. You won't find three more oddly-clothed golfers in the world.
All times Eastern.
