Golf fans are in for a treat at this week's Genesis Invitational at Riviera, as the three biggest hitters on the PGA Tour are set to star in the same group for the opening two rounds.

Bryson DeChambeau currently leads the way in driving distance on the PGA Tour, with an everage distance of 329.2 yards and the 27-year-old might not find himself too far away from his playing partners on Thursday and Friday, with Rory McIlroy and Cameron Champ joining him.

McIlroy has always been one of the longest players in the game and he currently averages a driving distance of 323.7 yards, with Champ in third position with 319 yards.

If watching the three biggest hitters go at it isn't quite your cup of tea, the rest of this week's featured groups might just tickle your fancy.

World No.3 Justin Thomas returns to the venue looking for revenge after he blew a huge lead in 2019 to finish second and Thomas will tee it up with recent PGA Tour winner Brooks Koepka and Xander Schauffele, who will looking to make up for his missed opportunity at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Patrick Cantlay will be eager to continue his rich vein of form and is part of an exciting featured group alongside World No.2 Jon Rahm and last year's PGA Championship winner Collin Morikawa.

The final featured group for the Genesis Open features three PGA Tour veterans, with World No.1 Dustin Johnson looking to capitalise on his recent form, teeing it up with defending champion Adam Scott and the always entertaining Bubba Watson.
