Fresh off his Canadian Open win, Rory McIlroy will play alongside Hideki Matsuyama and Xander Schauffele at 7:40 a.m. ET Thursday in one of the most notable first-round groups at the US Open, which takes place in The Country. Club in Brookline, Mass.

Meanwhile, Phil Mickelson will play with fellow LIV Golf members Louis Oosthuizen and Shane Lowry at 1:47 p.m. ET in his first event on US soil since January. Jon Rahm, the 2021 US Open champion, was grouped with Collin Morikawa and James Piot in one of the early tee times at 7:18 a.m. ET. Piot was one of 48 golfers who took part in LIV Golf’s inaugural event outside London last weekend.

The groups mostly avoided combining the best PGA Tour golfers with those who left for LIV. Aside from Piot’s placement with Rahm and Morikawa, none of the top 15 golfers in the world play alongside LIV tees.

Other notable groups include Justin Thomas, Viktor Hovland and Tony Finau (1:14 p.m. ET) and Brooks Koepka, Cameron Smith and Scottie Scheffler (1:25 p.m. ET).
