CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Tiger Woods returns to the PGA Tour for his first start since tying for 32nd last month at Augusta National and he will be grouped with the man he finished 14 strokes behind – Masters champion Patrick Reed.
Woods, Reed and Brooks Koepka, who returned to competition last week at the Zurich Classic following an extended stay on the disabled list with a wrist injury, will be grouped together for Rounds 1 and 2 at the Wells Fargo Championship.
The threesome will tee off on the first hole at 12:50 p.m. (ET). The group will begin their round on No. 10 on Friday at 7:40 a.m.
The threesome just ahead of Woods and Co. will also be compelling, with Justin Thomas and Brian Harman playing with Rickie Fowler.
Thomas won last year’s PGA Championship at Quail Hollow and Harman won the 2017 Wells Fargo Championship, which was played at Eagle Point Golf Club in Wilmington, N.C. Fowler won the Wells Fargo Championship in 2012.
On the other side of the draw, Phil Mickelson, who has nine top-10 finishes in Charlotte, will play with Jason Day and Daniel Berger, teeing off on the 10th tee at 7:40 a.m. on Thursday.
