Three-time winner Tiger Woods will play with Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas, the top two players in the world rankings, when the US Open gets under way on Thursday.

Woods, who won the last of his 14 majors a decade ago at the US Open, is playing in the championship for the first time since 2015.

The second major of the year is being held at Shinnecock Hills Golf Course in Long Island, New York, and starts the same day as the World Cup.

Four-time major winner Rory McIlroy will play alongside Jordan Spieth and Phil Mickelson, who just needs the US Open to complete the Grand Slam.

Defending champion Brooks Koepka will be among the early starters on the opening day when the American will join two-time Masters winner Bubba Watson and former world number one Jason Day on the tee at 07:40 (12:40 BST) on Thursday.

England’s Justin Rose, the world number three and winner in 2013, is also among the early starters alongside Louis Oosthuizen and Jimmy Walker in the group ahead of Koepka.

The US Open was last held at Shinnecock Hills in 2004 when the greens were particularly brutal with South African Retief Goosen winning at four under par.
