2016 FedEx St. Jude Classic tee times and pairings: Round 1


The 2016 FedEx St. Jude Classic kicks off this week from TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tenn., and it's the last PGA Tour event before the year's second major, the U.S. Open. The field, headlined by Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka, is top-heavy but still offers world ranking points that could propel a winner into the world top 60 and into the Open at Oakmont.

Phil Mickelson is grouped for the first two days with David Toms and Justin Leonard, former major champions all, and they start off No. 10 at 7:50 a.m. on Thursday.

Dustin Johnson draws Graeme McDowell and Retief Goosen, and they start Round 1 in the group before Mickelson's at 7:40 a.m. from the 10th.

Brooks Koepka will play with Steve Stricker and defending champion Fabian Gomez, playing on Thursday at 12:50 p.m. from No. 1.
