Announced: By the PGA Tour, four featured groupings for Thursday-Friday at this week’s Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego. Foremost among the marquee groups, Tiger Woods will make his 2019 debut with fellow Americans Xander Schauffele and Tony Finau. Schauffele and Finau never have played an official round on Tour with Woods, the 2019 Presidents Cup captain. Schauffele and Finau rank Nos. 2 and 6, respectively, on the points standings. Woods has won eight of his 80 PGA Tour titles at Torrey Pines, notably the 2008 U.S. Open, his 14th and most recent major championship. The other pairings: Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott and Jason Day; Rickie Fowler, Jon Rahm and Brandt Snedeker; Justin Rose, Jordan Spieth and Billy Horschel. The full pairings typically are posted by the Tour on the day before the tournament begins.
