2021 PGA Championship tee times, pairings: Complete field, schedule set for Round 1 at Kiawah Island


The 2021 PGA Championship begins early on Thursday morning, and there are some absolutely loaded groups to follow throughout the first two rounds at the second major of 2021. The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island has been playing fast and firm early in the week, according to Jon Rahm, which means the best ball-strikers in the world should rise to the top of the field this week as the PGA returns to South Carolina for the first time since 2012.

There are plenty of great golfers scattered throughout these tee times, but a lot are playing together for the first 36 holes. The best groups are a tad less loaded with star power than normal at a PGA (a good thing), save one obvious exception.

Here’s a look at probably the five most compelling heading into Thursday’s Round 1.

  • Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka (8:33 a.m. ET)
  • Collin Morikawa, Bryson DeChambeau, Hideki Matsuyama (8:44 a.m. ET)
  • Tommy Fleetwood, Jon Rahm, Patrick Reed (1:25 p.m. ET)
  • Will Zalatoris, Webb Simpson, Jordan Spieth (1:58 p.m. ET)
  • Dustin Johnson, Shane Lowry, Sergio Garcia (2:09 p.m. ET)

I love that the five most recent major winners are all playing together. Morikawa, DeChambeau and Matsuyama are all current champions of the PGA, U.S. Open and Masters, respectively. And then D.J., who won the November Masters, is playing with Lowry, who won The Open back in summer 2019.

Also, poor Jason Day. He got stuck between two of the elite talkers of all time in Phil Mickelson and Padraig Harrington. He might not get three sentences in over the first two days! Here’s a look at all the groups and times heading into Round 1 on Thursday. All times Eastern
