The 2022 PGA Championship and second major of the year kicks off at Southern Hills Country Club Thursday with some big names set to play together. On Tuesday, the PGA Tour announced that Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth will be grouped together for the opening two rounds. Woods was the last player to win the PGA at the course in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which is hosting its first major in roughly 15 years. He competed in the Masters last month, showing the world he could go all 72 holes against high-level competition since suffering devastating leg injuries in a February 2021 car crash.CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM

I did nothing and Tuesday was leg day. So, we went right back after it.”Woods is a four-time winner at the PGA, while McIlroy has won this event twice and is hoping for his first major championship since 2014. Spieth is looking to earn his first career grand slam, and he is fresh off winning the 2022 RBC Heritage last month.
