PGA Championship expert picks: Who our staff thinks will win at TPC Harding Park

By: Nick Piastowski

At 11:33 a.m. ET on Thursday, the grouping with perhaps the most firepower hits their opening tee shots on the 10th hole. That group includes new world No. 1 Justin Thomas, who rose to the top of the OWGR with a win last week at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. He’ll be joined by two-time PGA champion Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods. For Woods, it will be only his fifth round since the Tour returned in early June.

Another group to look out for with some major credentials is the grouping of defending champion Brooks Koepka, reigning U.S. Open champ Gary Woodland and reigning Open champion Shane Lowry. Koepka will have history on his mind as he goes for his third-straight PGA Championship win. They tee off for the first round two spots ahead of Tiger’s group at 11:11 a.m. ET.

Other notable tee times for Thursday’s opening round include Rickie Fowler, Bryson DeChambeau and Adam Scott (4:47 p.m. ET); Jon Rahm, Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia (4:58 p.m. ET); Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose (11:22 a.m. ET); and Tommy Fleetwood, Viktor Hovland and Hideki Matsuyama (4:36 p.m. ET).
