The PGA of America has released tee times for next week's PGA Championship at Baltusrol. Here's a look at the featured groups.

8:30 a.m. ET Thursday off No. 10: Jason Day, Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson

The world No. 1 and defending champion will be joined by two fellow PGA champions. McIlroy won at Kiawah in 2012 and Valhalla in 2014, while Mickelson won the Wanamaker at Baltusrol in 2005.

1:25 p.m. ET Thursday off No. 1: Jordan Spieth, Sergio Garcia, Bubba Watson

This grouping features three top-10 players who have all won at least once this season. Garcia is the only one missing a major, but he's been playing solid lately after a win at the Byron Nelson. Since then, the Spaniard has finished T-5 at the U.S. Open, BMW International Open and the Open at Troon.

1:45 p.m. ET Thursday off No. 1: Danny Willett, Dustin Johnson, Henrik Stenson

No surprise here, as the PGA traditionally groups the three majors champions from this year. All three players will be looking for major No. 2 at Baltusrol, with world No. 2 Johnson among the favorites after wins at Oakmont and Firestone, plus eight other top-10 finishes this season.
