2016 Northern Trust Open tee times and pairings: Round 1


The PGA Tour rolls into Riviera Country Club and the Los Angeles area for this week's Northern Trust Open.

James Hahn is defending champion, winning in a playoff a year ago over Dustin Johnson and Paul Casey.

However, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy are the headliners this week, with McIlroy making his first-ever appearance in the old Los Angeles Open. Spieth is paired for the first two days with buddy Justin Thomas and Fred Couples. They go off on Thursday at 12:12 p.m. local time from the first tee.

McIlroy will play with Phoenix Open winner Hideki Matsuyama and Matt Kuchar, playing Round 1 at 7:32 a.m. from the 10th tee.
