Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will play together in the opening two rounds of the PGA Championship next week at Valhalla.

The PGA Championship released its tee times for the final major of the year. Padraig Harrington will be joining Woods and Mickelson in the 8:35am tee time for the first round on Thursday.

Woods and Mickelson are in the same group at a major for the first time since the 2012 US Open.

In the traditional pairing of major champions, Bubba Watson (Masters), Martin Kaymer (US Open) and Rory McIlroy (Open Championship) will tee off at 1:45pm on Thursday.

This will be only the sixth time since 2001 that Woods and Mickelson have been in the same group at a major.
