I love this. I love the Tour Championship for how small it is and how elite the golfers playing in it actually are. Only 30 men will tee it up this week at East Lake and each pairing is quite good (golfers were paired by their ranking).

Here's a look at all 15 with Thursday tee times (all times Eastern):

Luke Donald and Dustin Johnson (11:40 a.m.) -- This is the worst pairing. I repeat, Dustin Johnson and Luke Donald are in last place in this event!

Brendon de Jonge and D.A. Points (11:50 a.m.) -- OK, maybe this should be the worst pairing.

Sergio Garcia and Boo Weekley (12:00 p.m.) -- Easily the most hilarious pairing. Boo: "You ever been fox huntin', Serg-eh-oh?" Sergio: "Say what?"

Charl Schwartzel and Roberto Castro (12:10 p.m.) -- Combined weight: 210 lbs. 

Webb Simpson and Billy Horschel (12:20 p.m.) -- Potentially the most intense and least intense golfers on the PGA Tour.

Kevin Streelman and Jason Dufner (12:30 p.m.) -- Dufner's group is always must-watch, if only to see if he gets tobacco juice on his playing partner's white pants.

Gary Woodland and Bill Haas (12:40 p.m.) -- Very underrated pairing. I could see either of these guys winning the $10 million prize.

Hunter Mahan and Keegan Bradley (12:50 p.m.) -- Mahan has been one of the three most consistent golfers in the history of the FedEx Cup playoffs. At some point that pays off (literally).

Jordan Spieth and Jason Day (1:00 p.m.) -- Good Heavens, the talent! 

Jim Furyk and Nick Watney (1:10 p.m.) -- Both could have won the BMW Championship last week. Maybe they'll talk about how much they hate Zach Johnson?

Justin Rose and Brandt Snedeker (1:20 p.m.) -- Probably the group I'd follow if I was on the course.

Phil Mickelson and Graham DeLaet (1:30 p.m.) -- Mickelson: "So Graham, tell me about the tax laws in Canada..."

Matt Kuchar and Steve Stricker (1:40 p.m.) -- Two of the four or five nicest guys on Tour, easily.

Adam Scott and Zach Johnson (1:50 p.m.) -- Johnson said earlier this week he was excited to play with Scott. We all would be, Zach.

Tiger Woods and Henrik Stenson (2:00 p.m.) -- The first time Woods has been in the final group in a while...

Coverage is on Golf Channel on Thursday and Friday from 1-6 p.m.
