Tiger grouped with Thomas and Johnson at US Open

Tiger Woods will tee it up in his first US Open golf tournament since 2015 alongside world No 1 Justin Thomas and the man Thomas replaced atop the summit, Dustin Johnson.

Woods, a three-time US Open victor, is set to tee off on Thursday afternoon, with the trio's scheduled time set for 13:47 followed by a Friday morning second round tee time of 08:02.

Woods has won 14 major championships, but has not had a victory since the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines.

The 118th U.S. Open will tee off at 6:45am (local time) next Thursday.

Thomas became world No 1 for the first time last month when a strong finish to The Players Championship ended the 64-week reign of Johnson, who can reclaim top spot with a big performance at this week's FedEx St Jude Classic.

The Spieth, McIlroy, Mickelson threesome will be immediately preceded by a group of Masters champions, the current titleholder Patrick Reed and Zach Johnson and Charl Schwartzel.

World number four Jon Rahm is the only top-10 player apart from Thomas and Johnson who will start late and then early.
