Sky Bet

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will play together in the first two rounds of next week's US PGA Championship at Valhalla.

The American pair, who have won 19 major titles between them, will begin their challenge for the year's last major, being shown live on Sky Sports 4, at 8.35am local time on Thursday, alongside 2008 champion Padraig Harrington.

In keeping with tradition, the PGA of America has placed the winners of the first three major championships of 2014 in the same group, with Bubba Watson, Martin Kaymer and Rory McIlroy teeing off at 1.45pm on Thursday.

Defending champion Jason Dufner has been drawn with the man he lost to in a play-off in 2011, fellow American Keegan Bradley, along with 2009 winner YE Yang. They tee off at 1.55pm.

Dustin Johnson's withdrawal to deal with "personal challenges" means 99 of the world's top 100 are set to compete for the Wanamaker Trophy at Valhalla, which at 7,458 yards is the longest par-71 in the tournament's history.

The longest par-71 in any major was the 2008 US Open at Torrey Pines, where the course measured 7,643 yards.
