With the golf world still buzzing over Tiger Woods' triumph at TPC Sawgrass, the PGA Tour now turns its attention to Texas. The Lone Star State will host Tour stops each of the next two weeks, beginning with this week's HP Byron Nelson Championship at TPC Four Seasons. Check out all of the tee times here.

Here's a look at some of the featured groups in Dallas, where Jason Dufner and Keegan Bradley will be able to take their Twitter battle onto the course during the first two rounds (all times CDT):

7:30 a.m. Thursday / 12:30 p.m. Friday: Martin Kaymer, Angel Cabrera, Charl Schwartzel

This group includes a trio of international major champions, with Cabrera having notably come close to his third major title last month at Augusta National. Kaymer has struggled this year outside of a third-round appearance at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, while Schwartzel's T-55 result last week at The Players Championship was his first finish outside the top 25 all season.

7:40 a.m. Thursday / 12:40 p.m. Friday: Jason Dufner, Keegan Bradley, Matt Kuchar

Still in search of his first top-10 finish of 2013, Dufner will hope to use the positive images from last year's victory to help get the job done. He'll be joined in the first two rounds by friend and fellow Twitter enthusiast Bradley, the two of whom have gone toe-to-toe in several social media battles over the past few months. Kuchar rounds out the marquee threesome, hoping for his third straight top-15 finish in Dallas.

12:30 p.m. Thursday / 7:30 a.m. Friday: Louis Oosthuizen, D.A. Points, Brian Gay

The highest-ranked player in this week's field, Oosthuizen finds himself grouped with a pair of players who have already won this year on the PGA Tour. Points triumphed in Houston and has since added a runner-up finish at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, while Gay won a playoff at the Humana Challenge in January but has yet to crack the top 20 in 10 starts since his triumph at PGA West.

1 p.m. Thursday / 8 a.m. Friday: Jordan Spieth, Ryo Ishikawa, Jeff Overton

A former standout at the University of Texas, Spieth will have plenty of crowd support this week in Dallas. He'll be joined by another young gun in Ishikawa, who has made the cut in four of his last five PGA Tour starts, while Overton rounds out the group having notched top-10 finishes in two of the last three years at TPC Four Seasons.
