Here are the tee times for Round 1 of the 2018 edition of the PGA Championship from Bellerive Country Club.

2018 marks the final time that the PGA Championship will close out golf’s major championship season –it moves to its new spot in May next year at Bethpage — and there are certainly plenty of storylines heading into the 100th edition of this tournament, which will be played this year at Bellerive Country Club in suburban St. Louis. The 2018 PGA Championship will be the third major at this venue. Gary Player won the U.S. Open here back in 1965 and Nick Price won the first of his two PGA titles at Bellerive in 1992.

Fresh off his win this past Sunday at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, a victory that moved him back to number two in the world rankings, defending champion Justin Thomas attempts to become just the second player to go back-to-back at this tournament since the format moved to stroke play back in 1958. Only Tiger Woods has done that (and of course he’s done it twice) and as luck would have it, Woods and Thomas will be playing together for the first two days. If that’s not enough for one group, they’ll be joined by two-time champ Rory McIlroy, who won at Kiawah Island in 2012 and followed it up two years later with a victory at Valhalla, his last win at a major.

The usual group featuring the three previous major champions of the year will also be fun to watch as Masters champ Patrick Reed will tee it up alongside U.S. Open winner Brooks Koepka and arguably the hottest golfer in the world right now, Francesco Molinari, who became the first Italian-born major champion with his win at The Open Championship last month.

World number one Dustin Johnson, who recently won at the RBC Canadian Open and followed it up with a tie for third in Akron this past week with a fantastic final round, will be joined by fellow major champions Bubba Scott and Adam Scott on Thursday and Friday. Past PGA Championship winners Phil Mickelson, Jason Day and Keegan Bradley are featured in another marquee group.

Here are the groupings and tee times for the first round of the 100th PGA Championship. (All times Eastern. *-PGA Club Professional)
