The Players Championship Groups and UK Tee Times for Round 1 and 2

The Players Championship is back and golf fans around the world are buzzing to see the best golfers in the world return to TPC Sawgrass and there are some fantastic groups to look forward to for the opening two rounds.

It was at this tournament last year where golf was rocked by the coronavirus outbreak, with the 2020 Players Championship being cancelled after the opening round, which led to the PGA Tour being on hold for 91 days.

Although we still won't have a full capacity crowd, spectators will still play a part in this year's event as the PGA Tour starts to ease fans back into events in America.

Rory McIlroy, who is technically still the defending champion after his victory in 2019, will tee it up alongside 2018 winner Webb Simpson and Sergio Garcia, who claimed the title back in 2008.

World No.1 Dustin Johnson returns to action and he is paired with Arnold Palmer Invitational winner Bryson DeChambeau and recent WGC winner Collin Morikawa.

Jon Rahm will be looking to get back to his best and he will spend Thursday and Friday's rounds alongside Patrick Reed and Jordan Spieth, whilst the final featured group sees Justin Thomas go out with Patrick Cantlay and Viktor Hovland.

Check out all of the groups and UK tee times for the opening two rounds below.
