PGA Championship first round tee times for Thursday, featured groups, TV and streaming info

·4 min read

Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa will host the PGA Championship for the fifth time, but there will be a glaring absence when the golfers tee off on Thursday.

Defending champion Phil Mickelson, who became the oldest golfer to win a major title at age 50, has decided not to participate, as he is extending his self-imposed from the tour after his comments about an alternative Super Golf League in Saudi Arabia.

There will still be plenty of firepower battling for the Wanamaker Trophy as Tiger Woods, a four-time PGA Championship winner, Rory McIlroy, and Jordan Spieth are grouped together for the first two rounds.
