Tiger Woods has been grouped with Justin Thomas and PGA champion Collin Morikawa for the first two rounds of the US Open.

Woods faces an early start to his bid for a 16th major title, with the 44-year-old going out at 8.07am (1.07pm BST) from the tenth tee on Thursday at Winged Foot against the world No 3 and world No 5.

It's the second major in a row and third time this year where Thomas has been grouped with Woods for the first two days, having also played alongside him at the Genesis Invitational and last month's PGA Championship.

Rory McIlroy also goes out in the morning wave for the second major of the year, with the 2011 US Open champion having the same tee time as Woods but going off from the first alongside fellow former world No 1s Justin Rose and Adam Scott.
