Tiger Woods will face off against Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) and Jordan Spieth (USA) in the same group for rounds 1 and 2 in the PGA Championship, the second major event of the US PGA Tour season.

If you look at the group composition of the PGA Championship, which will open tomorrow (19th) at the Southern Hills Country Club (par 70, 7,556 yards) in Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA, Woods will be at 10:11 pm on the 19th, the first day of the tournament, Korean time. Round 1 starts on the 10th hole with McIlroy and Spieth.

This is Woods’ second appearance after the Masters after a car accident in February of last year.

Woods finished 47th at the Masters last month, which was his first official competition after a car accident.

At the official press conference of the tournament held today (18th) two days before the opening date, Woods said, “(At the Masters) I experienced a very steep course once, so this time it will be better.”

“The swing to hit the ball is possible, but walking remains a challenge,” said Woods, who was injured so badly that he nearly amputated his right leg in a car accident.

Still, Woods showed confidence, saying, “After the Masters in April, there was only one day off. I became stronger than the Masters, and I think I can win this tournament.”

Woods won the PGA Championship four times in 1999, 2000, 2006, and 2007, and in particular, the 2007 tournament was held in the same Southern Hills as this year.

“Actually, it’s the mindset that matters more than the body condition,” Woods said.

However, he added, “It’s a pity that the more time passes, the more quickly you get tired and the lower your stamina.”

McIlroy, who plays rounds 1 and 2 with Woods, is aiming for his third title in the tournament, following 2012 and 2014.

Jordan Spieth is chasing a career grand slam in this tournament, as only this one of the four majors won’t win.

Scotty Schaeffler (USA), Jon Lam (Spain), and Colin Morikawa (USA) groups, which are ranked 1st to 3rd in the world rankings, also attract the attention of fans.
