One of golf’s holiest alliances

It doesn’t take an act of God for Tiger Woods to be paired with Justin Thomas in the U.S. Open, so what, pray tell, is the harm?

The new 11th Commandment: Thou shalt always pair Tiger Woods and Justin Thomas together in the first round of a golf tournament (“2020 U.S. Open: Tee times for Winged Foot,” Sept. 16).

And like the other 10, that’s all right.
