2019 Genesis Open tee times, pairings: When Tiger Woods starts in Round 1 on Thursday

Stars and superstars have aligned themselves this week at Riviera Country Club for the 2019 Genesis Open. It is one of the best early events of the golf year and probably the event of the first two months of play on the PGA Tour. Evidence of that lies in the strength of field.

Tiger Woods is (obviously) the biggest draw, and his threesome of Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy could not have more punch if Humphrey Bogart, Clark Gable and Dean Martin were paired together. That's not the only big time grouping, though, as the first 36 holes will be rife with trios of big name players.

Joining the Woods triumvirate is the big hitting group of Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson and Cameron Champ. Phil Mickelson, Jordan Spieth and Xander Schauffele will also have a monster following this weekend. All of those groupings make up this week's featured groups, which you can watch on PGA Tour Live.

Here's a look at those featured groups and some other key tee times. For a full list of tee times for this week's tournament, you can click here
