2016 U.S. Open tee times and pairings

The USGA released tee times and pairings for next week's U.S. Open on Friday. And if you were wishing to see members of the Big 3 playing together, you're going to have to hope it happens on the weekend.

Defending U.S. Open champion Jordan Spieth will play alongside Zach Johnson and Bryson DeChambeau on Thursday and Friday at Oakmont. It's traditional for the defending champs of the U.S. and British Opens to play with the reigning U.S. Amateur champ. What's not as traditional is how the pairing came about. DeChambeau forfeited his spot by turning pro earlier this year, but earned a spot through sectional qualifying on Monday. DeChambeau held his own head-to-head against Spieth for two rounds at the Masters two months ago before a closing triple bogey on Friday. That trio will tee off Oakmont's 10th hole at 8:35 a.m. on Thursday.

World No. 1 Jason Day will play with two of the sweetest swings in golf the first two days: Adam Scott and Louis Oosthuizen. All three contended at Chambers Bay last year. They'll start on the first hole at 2:20 p.m. on Thursday.

And Rory McIlroy will go off No. 1 at 8:24 a.m. on Thursday. McIlroy is paired with reigning Masters champ Danny Willett and Rickie Fowler.

Other big-name groups include Phil Mickelson/Justin Rose/Henrik Stenson (2:09 off No. 10), Bubba Watson/Matt Kuchar/Patrick Reed (7:51 off No. 1), and a pairing of two guys with more than their fair share of major championship heartbreaks: Dustin Johnson and Sergio Garcia. Hideki Matsuyama will be the third in that group as those two start commiserating at 1:36 p.m. on the first tee.
