2020 Northern Trust tee times

Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa and Webb Simpson, who rank 1-2-3 in the FedEx Cup, form an all-star pairing for TPC Boston

Three of the hottest players on the PGA Tour will be paired together when the FedEx Cup playoffs begin Thursday at the Northern Trust in Norton, Mass.

Americans Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa and Webb Simpson will compose the 8:26 a.m. EDT pairing off the 10th tee at TPC Boston (tee times). Thomas, Morikawa and Simpson are ranked Nos. 2, 5 and 6, respectively, in the Official World Golf Ranking. All have won since the season restart: Thomas at the WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational, Morikawa at the Workday Charity Open and more recently at the PGA Championship and Simpson at the RBC Heritage. They also rank 1-2-3 in the FedEx Cup standings.

Tiger Woods will be making his first start since he tied for 37th two weeks ago at the PGA Championship. Woods, a two-time winner of the FedEx Cup (2007 and 2009), will be paired with South Africa's Dylan Frittelli and England's Matthew Fitzpatrick at 8:37 a.m. off the 10th tee, in the group following Thomas-Morikawa-Simpson.
