Tiger Woods sealed a historic triumph at the U.S. Open on this day in 2000.

The American won by 15 strokes, which still stands as a record margin of victory at a major.

Woods' display at Pebble Beach is widely regarded as the greatest performance in golf history.

Here is a look at how Woods, then aged 24, secured his most dominant victory.

Round 1: 65 (leads by 1)

Woods issued an early statement of intent with a blemish-free opening round. He made the turn in 33 and proved relentless on the back nine, making a further four gains to move to six under par. Miguel Angel Jimenez was just one shot back.

Round 2: 69 (leads by 6)

The chasing pack, Jimenez included, could not keep pace amid worsening conditions on the Friday. Woods' round was halted by darkness and he returned the next day to finish up and sign for a 69, while Jimenez could only manage a 74 to sit level on two under with Thomas Bjorn, some six shots back from the imperious Woods.

Round 3: 71 (leads by 10)

By the close of the third round, that lead was an unassailable 10 strokes over Ernie Els. Despite having to play 24 holes on the Saturday and making a triple bogey on the third hole of his third round, Woods still left the rest of the field for dead. He finished the day as the only player under par and left the trophy engraver in little doubt as to what he would be carving into the silverware the next day.

Round 4: 67 (leads by 15)

Barring a meltdown of unfathomable proportions, Woods had the title in the bag. Yet he still wanted to finish in style, setting his sights on a bogey-free closing round. That was at risk when he stood over a 15-foot putt to save par at the 16th, but Woods sunk it and celebrated with vigour. It helped him to a final-round 67 and an overall score of 12 under, making it the first double-digit below-par score in tournament history. Jimenez and Els were his closest rivals on three over. The most resounding victory in major golf history was complete.

What they said:

"The only thing I know is I got the trophy sitting right next to me. To perform the way I did, and on one of the greatest venues in golf, it doesn't get much better than that." – Tiger Woods

"We've been talking about him for two years. I guess we'll be talking about him for the next 20. When he's on, we don't have much of a chance." – Ernie Els

"If you were building the complete golfer, you'd build Tiger Woods." – Mark O'Meara

Rory McIlroy dismissed suggestions his final rounds were an issue as he prepares for the RBC Heritage.

In the first tournament back after the coronavirus-enforced break, world number one McIlroy was in contention at the Charles Schwab Challenge before finishing in a tie for 32nd following a final-round 74.

The Northern Irishman is without a win in five starts this year, but McIlroy said Sundays were no issue.

"I wouldn't say that Sundays this year have been disappointing," he told a news conference on Wednesday.

"Maybe Bay Hill [at the Arnold Palmer Invitational], I would say was disappointing, and obviously last week, but that was just more annoying, like I played crap. That was really it.

"Like it wasn't as if it was anything to do with the position I was in or I got off to a really bad start and got into the rough on the front nine and hit decent shots that ended up in a bunker or a bad lie or whatever and just ... it's one of those things where the momentum just started going the other way.

"It's fine. I played okay last week. It was a good gauge to see where I was at and what I needed to practice and what I needed to do going into the next few weeks.

"Obviously disappointing not to shoot a good one on Sunday, but it was fine. I learnt quite a bit from it, and hopefully those lessons I can put into practice this week."

The Golden State Warriors and Tiger Woods both became champions again on June 16 in previous years, while Didier Deschamps' France also started their road to glory in Russia.

Steve Kerr's Warriors have dominated the NBA for much of the past half-decade, but five years ago they were trying to end a long championship drought.

Woods was already a multiple major winner by 2008, though his victory at the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines while he essentially played on one leg was one of his most incredible successes.

Here we take a look at major sporting events that have happened on June 16 in previous years.

 

2008 - Wounded Woods wins U.S. Open play-off

The 2008 U.S. Open had been due to finish on Sunday, June 15 but 72 holes could not separate Woods and veteran Rocco Mediate, so the two came back for 18 more on Monday.

Woods had a three-stroke lead through 10 holes but, clearly hampered by a serious knee injury, he was reeled in by the world number 158 and needed a birdie at the last to force a sudden death.

After 91 holes, Woods eventually emerged victorious to claim his 14th major title - four short of record-holder Jack Nicklaus' haul - though it would be another 11 years before he tasted major success again at the Masters.

It was later revealed Woods had played on with a double stress fracture and a torn anterior cruciate ligament, making his victory all the more remarkable.

2015 - Warriors end title drought

Finals between the Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers would become a regular theme, and it was Stephen Curry and Co. who came out on top in 2015, as they did in 2017 and 2018 too.

The 2015 series had been tied at 2-2 but a 104-91 Game 5 win gave Golden State the chance to end a 40-year wait for another title on June 16, which they did with a 105-97 Game 6 victory.

Curry and Finals MVP Andre Iguodala scored 25 points apiece, with the latter winning praise for his defensive display against LeBron James, who would need to wait another 12 months before he brought a title to the long-suffering Cleveland fans.

2018 - VAR helps France edge past Australia

They may have undoubtedly been the best team at Russia 2018, but France had an underwhelming start to a campaign that would end with them winning the World Cup.

Les Bleus were thankful for VAR when it was used - for the first time ever in a World Cup match - to award them a controversial penalty after Josh Risdon's tackle on Antoine Griezmann originally went punished in Kazan.

Griezmann duly dispatched the penalty but Australia pulled level through Mile Jedinak's spot-kick, only for France to claim a 2-1 win 10 minutes from time courtesy of an own goal from Aziz Behich.

Rory McIlroy lamented his "bad start" after the world number one finished nine strokes behind Charles Schwab Challenge champion Daniel Berger.

McIlroy carded a final-round 74 to end the PGA Tour's comeback tournament tied for 32nd at six under, well adrift of Berger – who prevailed in a play-off against Collin Morikawa on Sunday.

Playing without fans at Colonial Country Club in the Tour's first event since the coronavirus pandemic suspended the season in March, McIlroy had a double bogey and four bogeys from his opening nine holes of the day.

The four-time major champion managed to collect three birdies following the turn, outweighing a bogey at the 15th hole in Texas, but it was too late.

"I got off to a really bad start," McIlroy said. "Hit a loose second shot on the first hole up to the right and then sort of messed around and took bogey there, so not the ideal start.

"The wind was up today. You didn't have to be that much off for it to sort of show and I missed a couple of greens in the wrong spots and made bogeys.

"But you know, played all the way to the end, shot a decent back nine. I was a couple under on the back, but front nine I just got into a rut and played a bad run of holes and obviously that put me out of the tournament."

McIlroy will now turn his attention to the RBC Heritage in South Carolina, where the Northern Irishman will play for the first time since 2009, when he was 19 years old.

Jordan Spieth insisted he had "gained a lot of confidence" from his performance at the Charles Schwab Challenge.

In contention at the Colonial Country Club, Spieth carded a one-over 71 in the final round to finish four shots from being in a play-off, which Daniel Berger won.

Spieth is winless since 2017, but the American now has two top-10 finishes in six events this year, as the PGA Tour returned amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The three-time major winner got plenty out of his performance in Fort Worth, Texas.

"I knew coming in I didn't have all the tools, didn't have all my weapons yet. But I certainly gained more this week, gained a lot of confidence," Spieth said.

"I'm making those putts from mid-to-long range and I'm driving the ball in good position.

"It's really just cleaning up the wedges and stuff that I'm normally really sharp with that certainly had a bit of rust on it. I feel really good going into the next couple of weeks for sure."

Spieth, who is set to play at the RBC Heritage starting on Thursday, said there were still elements of his game that needed work.

"Very pleased with my driving. I felt like I hit my driver really well," he said.

"I had one today where I just necked it and the wind picked up, and it took a big bounce and went out of bounds. It wasn't really that bad of a shot.

"But for the entire week I drove the ball, I felt, really well, put myself in position to make a lot of birdies and made a lot of birdies.

"I've just got to get sharper with kind of my in-between numbers, the stuff that when you're used to just kind of hitting balls on the range and not playing tournament golf and you're not really practising them as much, so that will be what I work on this next week."

Daniel Berger ended a three-year wait for another PGA Tour title, winning the Charles Schwab Challenge in a play-off on Sunday.

The American beat Collin Morikawa on the first play-off hole at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas in the first tournament back after the coronavirus-enforced break.

Berger carded a four-under 66 in the final round and Morikawa shot a 67 to finish at 15 under.

But as Berger made par at the first play-off hole – the 17th – Morikawa missed a short putt to stretch the tournament a little longer.

For Berger, it was his third PGA Tour victory and first since 2017, when he defended his St Jude Classic crown.

"It's just a range of emotions," the 27-year-old told CBS.

"I've grinded so hard the last two months to be in this position and I'm just so thankful that all the hard work paid off."

Overnight leader Xander Schauffele carded a one-under 69 to finish tied for third alongside Jason Kokrak (64), Bryson DeChambeau (66) and Justin Rose (66), a shot behind Berger and Morikawa.

Bubba Watson (65) and Patrick Reed (67) were a shot further back, while Gary Woodland (70) finished outright ninth at 12 under.

There was a star-studded chasing pack overnight and Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas were among them, but the American pair fired one-over 71s in the final round.

Spieth and Thomas finished tied for 10th alongside Im Sung-jae (67) and J.T. Poston (68).

World number one Rory McIlroy also struggled in the final round, battling to a four-over 74 to finish tied for 32nd.

Xander Schauffele climbed into the lead at the Charles Schwab Challenge as a star-studded group were left chasing heading into the final round.

Schauffele carded a four-under 66 in the third round at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas as the PGA Tour's return continued amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The American mixed six birdies with two bogeys to get to 13 under and into a one-stroke lead.

Schauffele will have several stars to hold off in the final round if he is to secure his fifth PGA Tour victory.

Justin Thomas (66) and Jordan Spieth (68) are among a group of five players tied for second at 12 under.

The pair continued their consistent showings, with Spieth aiming to add to his 2016 title, having also finished runner-up in 2015 and 2017.

Spieth, who has tumbled out of the world's top 50, made four birdies and a bogey on the front nine before dropping a shot at the par-four 15th.

Gary Woodland (66), Branden Grace (66) and Collin Morikawa (67) are alongside Spieth and Thomas in a tie for second.

A shot further back are Daniel Berger (67) and Harold Varner III (70), while there is a six-way tie for ninth.

Rory McIlroy (69) and Justin Rose (68) are among those at 10 under, alongside Patrick Reed (63), Abraham Ancer (66), Corey Conners (67) and Bryson DeChambeau (70).

McIlroy made back-to-back bogeys at the seventh and eighth holes, while Rose bogeyed two of his final three holes.

Harold Varner III could achieve "one of the great victories we've seen on the PGA Tour" if he lands the Charles Schwab Challenge title on Sunday, according to Colin Montgomerie.

American Varner is one of few black golfers competing at the highest level and made a strong start to the first full event staged since the tour returned from its coronavirus-enforced suspension.

He carried a slender lead into Saturday's third round, with Jordan Spieth and Bryson DeChambeau his nearest challengers.

The PGA Tour is recognising racial injustice with a moment of silence for George Floyd each day.

There have been nationwide protests in the United States after Floyd – an African-American man – died in police custody in Minneapolis on May 25.

The Black Lives Matter movement has gained momentum, and Montgomerie said it would be "poignant" for Varner to be this week's champion.

Former European Ryder Cup captain Montgomerie said: "What a story this is, beginning to unfold.

"I'm sure everyone wishes him the very, very best."

Varner had a triple bogey on his opening hole of Friday's second round but rallied to post a four-under 66, helped by five birdies in his final six holes, to reach 11 under par through 36 holes.

"Terrific effort, and it'll be so poignant, wouldn't it, if he could come through here," Montgomerie told BBC Radio Five Live.

"It'll be one of the great victories we've seen on the PGA Tour, not just because it's been three months off but because of the situation we find ourselves in right now.

"I think I speak for everybody, that we wish him well."

Montgomerie was eager to see how Varner would handle the pressure of leading, given he stood tied-second going into the final day of last year's PGA Championship only to shoot an 81 and finish well off the pace.

"It was an eye-opener for him. It was the first time he'd been in the last group in a major and you learn from that," Montgomerie said. "When I was in that position myself, you learn from those positions."

Tom Lehman was a surprise presence towards the top of the Charles Schwab Challenge leaderboard when the PGA Tour season resumed on Thursday.

There were no spectators at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas as some of the world's best players looked to make up for three inactive months after the season was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A strong field had to abide by social distancing measures on their return to competitive action, but Justin Rose was certainly not restricted as he set the pace with a seven-under 63.

Jhonattan Vegas and Abraham Ancer were just a shot adrift of early leader Rose, while Lehman also looked anything but rusty, starting with a 65 in a tournament he won back in 1995.

There was just one bogey in an eye-catching opening round from the 1996 Open champion, who became the oldest player to shoot 65 or better on the PGA Tour in the last 40 years at the age of 61.

Lehman said: "Do I feel like I'm capable of shooting a 65 out here at Colonial? Well, for certain I do. Did I expect to do it today? Well, I would be probably lying if I said I fully expected to play and shoot such a low score. But I did expect to play well."

There was a poignant moment when those on and off the course stopped to observe a moment of silence and reflection at 8.46am for George Floyd, who died last month while in police custody in Minneapolis.

Rory McIlroy was among those to go out later in the day and the world number one was two under through 13 holes.

Rory McIlroy has praised the PGA Tour's decision to pay tribute to George Floyd and hopes golf can be a driving force in creating more diversity in sport.

The PGA Tour is scheduled to resume following a three-month coronavirus-enforced hiatus with the Charles Schwab Challenge this weekend.

It was confirmed play will be halted for a minute at 8.46am local time on Thursday and the tee time left vacant in honour of Floyd, who died in police custody in Minneapolis on May 25.

The death of Floyd has sparked protests in America and beyond with the Black Lives Matter movement, while several prominent sports stars have made anti-racism messages.

World number one McIlroy is heartened to see the PGA Tour follow other sports in showing its support. 

"I think what the PGA Tour has done with the moment of silence at 8:46am and not using that tee time is a wonderful gesture," McIlroy said.

"A great word that I've been thinking of over the last couple of weeks is 'tolerance'. I think everyone can just be a little more tolerant, and a little more educated and not as ignorant."

McIlroy spoke about his own admiration for 15-time major winner Tiger Woods when discussing issues around racism and prejudice.

"Tiger doesn't look the same as me, has had a very different upbringing to the one that I have had, but he was my hero growing up," McIlroy added.

"It didn't matter what colour his skin was, what his beliefs were. Tiger was my hero, and he's been a lot of kids' heroes over the years that have grown up playing golf.

"I think that there should be more people like him in golf.

"The fact that there does seem to be this real will to change and have reform is amazing. It's been a great thing to see, and I hope it continues to be in the conversation." 

McIlroy has spoken about his desire for the Ryder Cup not to take place without fans but is more relaxed about spectator-free PGA Tour tournaments, even if he acknowledges it will take some getting used to.

The four-time major winner is also unsure how the suspension will have affected his form, with the Northern Irishman having recorded seven straight top-five finishes prior to the break.

"Obviously playing in front of no fans at a Ryder Cup is very different than playing in front of no fans at a PGA Tour event," McIlroy said. 

"Look, it'll be slightly different. It'll be a little eerie that you're not getting claps and you're not getting feedback from good shots and stuff like that, but I think at the same time, it's what we have to do.

"It's what we're going to have to live with for the foreseeable future, and if that's what I have to adapt to be able to get out here and play on Tour and get back to work essentially, then I'm happy to do that.

"It [three months of no PGA Tour] actually gave me an opportunity to work on a few things. I spent 90 days in a row at home for the first time in my adult life.

"I'm eager to get back and I'm eager to play and get back into competition mode, but I'm sort of... expectation-wise, we'll see how it goes. I feel like I'm as sharp as I can be coming in here.

"I've played a lot of golf over the last few weeks and I've practiced a bit. My game seems to be there. It seems to be there at home anyway, so if it's there at home, there's no reason why it shouldn't be there when I get out here."

Steve Stricker will make six captain's picks for the United States' Ryder Cup team in an indication the event is set to go ahead.

The PGA Tour is due to resume with the Charles Schwab Challenge this week after an enforced three-month hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the fate of the Ryder Cup – which is scheduled to take place at Whistling Straits between September 25 and 28 – has yet to be confirmed.

USA captain Stricker said last week it would be a "crime" if fans were unable to attend and that the absence of spectators could lead to a "yawner" of an event.

New selection criteria were announced for Team USA on Wednesday, though, with Stricker's choices being bumped up from four to six.

Only one major tournament, the US PGA Championship, will count towards automatic qualification, while points will be accrued through to the BMW Championship at the end of August.

"With all the various changes to the 2020 schedule, it quickly became apparent that we would need to amend our selection criteria," Stricker said via a widely reported PGA of America release.

"After many deliberate discussions, we collectively agreed that a smaller sampling of 2020 events – including just one major championship – would justify a one-week extension of the qualification window and an increase in the number of captain's selections from four to six.

"These changes were sparked by circumstance but conceived with integrity in mind. In the end, we believe they will allow us to put our best team together to compete at Whistling Straits in September."

Jon Rahm is relishing the chance to play alongside Rory McIlroy and Brooks Koepka in a star-studded group at the Charles Schwab Challenge.

The PGA Tour returns without spectators this week and the top three players in the world will play together across Thursday and Friday at Colonial Country Club.

Rahm was also playing with McIlroy and Koepka in a featured group at The Players Championship, which was suspended mid-tournament in March as the coronavirus pandemic brought the golf calendar to a halt.

After three months without play, Rahm accepts form and the world rankings can largely be discounted.

"I'm not surprised I must say," world number two Rahm said of playing alongside McIlroy and Koepka.

"I figured they were going to entice the viewers with a couple of really, really good groups.

"When we played at The Players, me and Rory were coming in in really good form. Brooks maybe wasn't playing his best golf, but Brooks has the ability to come through in the biggest events.

"We were looking forward to a couple of fun days, especially Friday, and we kind of got, obviously, for really bad reasons, stripped of that opportunity. So, I'm glad to be experiencing this again."

He added: "No crowd, like we probably would have had in this group, but still fun to play with the best players in the world, see what everybody has been up to and see how it goes.

"It's hard to say anymore who's the best in the world after not competing for three months.

"It all depends on who's prepared the best or who's handled the situation the best or who even handles these new rules on the PGA Tour the best.

"It's just a ranking. It's a continuously moving thing, and since we've been stopped, I don't think those numbers matter a lot anymore. We can only come back and prove that we deserve that spot."

Rahm finished one shot behind Kevin Kisner at Colonial in 2017, while Koepka was second to Justin Rose the following year.

American Kevin Na is the defending champion.

Harold Varner III has claimed a "lack of access" is the main issue preventing more black golfers making it onto the PGA Tour.

George Floyd's death in police custody in Minneapolis in May has sparked protests across the globe, with many sports stars speaking out in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Varner, who won the Australian PGA Championship in 2016, posted a message to his official Twitter account in the wake of Mr Floyd's death, describing his killing as "evil incarnate" while being critical of those to have looted businesses in the United States amid the large-scale peaceful demonstrations.

The 29-year-old, one of few black players on the Tour, has now commented on the lack of equality in golf, stating there is a lack of access for youngsters looking to get into a sport that is often prohibitively expensive.

"What's the problem? I've talked about this a hundred times, a million times. It's access," Varner told reporters ahead of his return to action in the Charles Schwab Challenge in Texas this week.

"Any time that someone wants to be great at something, they have to have the opportunity to experience it, learn how to get better. It's just so expensive to play golf, and that's the problem, to be honest with you.

"Growing up, no one was talking about access to golf because I had access. I got to play a little muni all the time.

"It doesn't become a problem until it's not there, like anything in life. No one understands how much someone cares about something until it's taken away, and I think COVID-19 has taught us a lot of that, so we're going to make it better in our community and hopefully grow that.

"There are some great programmes out there that I've been able to talk to that just care about the access to golf. It's an important sport, it teaches a lot of stuff, not only how to be better at golf but how to be a better human in this society."

The PGA Tour has confirmed the action at Colonial Country Club will pause at 08:46 local time on Thursday for a moment of reflection in tribute to Mr Floyd.

PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan has pledged to be "part of the solution" on the issue of racial inequality and held a long conversation with Varner last week.

"I think there will be discussion," Varner said when asked about his talks with Monahan.

"I think some will forget about it, I think so many people will move on, but the conversation I had with Jay when we weren't being recorded, I think this week won't be the last week, because it's getting to the point where everyone has a voice that if the PGA Tour was to forget it, they would get hounded every day.

"So it's just kind of like yes, they're pressured, but I also think that it's the right thing to do, and I think Jay knows that, so I'm super behind him on that, and we got to talking about some things where I come from, what I think about it."

June 10 will forever be remembered as a famous day in Italian football, as it marks the first time the Azzurri conquered the world and Europe.

It is also a date on which Al Geiberger made history on the PGA Tour and Sebastian Coe set an 800m world record that went unbroken for 16 years.

Many French Open tennis finals have been held on this day, but the battle between Ivan Lendl and John McEnroe in 1984 stands out.

This was also the date on which the first University Boat Race, one of the oldest annual sporting events in the world, was held in London.

 

1829 - Oxford win first University Boat Race

The University Boat Race between Oxford and Cambridge, England's most prestigious higher-education bodies, has been held annually on the Thames since 1856. The only exceptions were caused by the First and Second World Wars (no races took place from 1915-19 and 1940-45) and in 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic intervened.

The very first such event took place back on June 10, 1829. Oxford triumphed by nearly two lengths in around 14 minutes and 30 seconds.

Cambridge got revenge at the second race, seven years later, and they still lead the overall standings 84-80.

 

1934 - Italy win home World Cup

The second football World Cup took place in Italy 86 years ago, under the shadow of Benito Mussolini's fascist regime.

The host nation triumphed after a 2-1 victory over Czechoslovakia in scorching temperatures in Rome, Angelo Schiavo scoring the decisive goal in a 2-1 win.

Italy tasted more success at a home tournament on this date in 1968, winning their only European Championship to date with a 2-0 defeat of Yugoslavia, a match also played in Rome.

That fixture was a replay after the teams had battled out a 1-1 draw two days earlier at the same Stadio Olimpico venue.

 

1977 - Al Geiberger cards sub-60 round

Geiberger claimed 30 professional wins in his career including the PGA Championship in 1966, but he is widely remembered for becoming the first player in history to card a score of 59 in a PGA Tour-sanctioned event.

His bogey-free second round helped him to win the Danny Thomas Memphis Classic in 1977, even though it was the only round where he shot under 70.

That round of 59 has been equalled nine times since and beaten only once: Jim Furyk carded a 58 final round at the 2016 Travelers Championship.

 

1981 - Sebastian Coe sets 800m world record

Coe produced a run for the ages in the 800 metres on June 10, 1981 in Florence.

His world record of one minute and 41.73 seconds lasted for 16 years until Wilson Kipketer twice recorded lower times in 1997, and it was not until August 2010 that David Rudisha went even faster.

Coe remains the joint-third fastest man to run the distance in history – Nijel Amos equalled his time at the 2012 Olympics in London. That run by Amos was only good enough for silver, since Rudisha took the gold with a world record of 1:40.91, which still stands.

 

1984 - Lendl defeats McEnroe in Paris

McEnroe had the chance to silence those who questioned whether he could cut it on clay when he reached his first French Open final in 1984.

He took the first two sets against Ivan Lendl, who had lost all four of his previous major finals, but things unravelled as McEnroe's famous short temper got the better of him.

Lendl triumphed 3-6 2-6 6-4 7-5 7-5 for his first of eight grand slam singles titles, three of which came in Paris. McEnroe never made a Roland Garros final again, although he did win at Wimbledon and the US Open – his last major victories – later in the year.

Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm and Brooks Koepka have been grouped together for this week's Charles Schwab Challenge as the PGA Tour makes its comeback.

Golf's premier tour has been on hold since March when The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass was scrapped after one round amid the coronavirus pandemic.

McIlroy, Rahm and Koepka – the top three ranked players in the world – were the headline group at that tournament in Florida and the trio will get another up-close view of their rivals' games on Thursday and Friday this week.

The Charles Schwab Challenge in Texas was originally scheduled for May but will now mark the PGA Tour's restart in an event held without fans present.

McIlroy, currently the world number one, has never played in the tournament at Colonial Country Club, while Rahm and Koepka have both finished in the top five in previous years.

American trio Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth have also been grouped together, as have Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose.

Defending champion Kevin Na will play alongside Phil Mickelson, a two-time winner at the event, and reigning U.S. Open champion Gary Woodland.
