PGA Championship 2024 tee times: Rory McIlroy grouped with Dustin Johnson as Scottie Scheffler plays alongside major winners

Must read

World No 1 Scottie Scheffler has been grouped alongside fellow reigning major champions Wyndham Clark and Brian Harman for the first two rounds of the PGA Championship at Valhalla.

Scheffler, who has victory at The Masters among four wins in his last five starts, has been given a late-early draw alongside US Open champion Clark and Champion Golfer of the Year Harman.

The trio will tee-off in the afternoon wave at 2.13pm local time (7.13pm BST), with Scheffler – who became a father last week – looking to become the first player since Jordan Spieth in 2015 to win the first two majors of the calendar year.

Rory McIlroy has an early-late draw as he chases a third victory in as many starts and elusive fifth major title, at the same venue where he claimed his most recent major success in 2014, with the Northern Irishman in a marquee group with former world No 1s Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose.

Club professional Michael Block will hit the opening tee shot, a year on from dominating the headlines after making a
hole-in-one alongside McIlroy in the final round of a tied-15th finish. Block is grouped with Europe’s Ryder Cup captain Luke Donald and 2003 winner Shaun Micheel.
