Woods, Mickelson paired at Players Championship

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will play together at next week’s The Players Championship in one of the featured groups announced on Sunday.

Woods and Mickelson haven’t been in the same group at the event in 17 years or at any PGA Tour event in nearly four years.

They’ll be joined by Rickie Fowler when play begins at TPC Sawgrass on Thursday.

The trio has four Players Championship titles between them. Woods won in 2001 and 2013, Mickelson won in 2007 and Fowler took the title in 2015 in what is considered the biggest victory of his career.

The other featured group is made up of the past three FedExCup champions — reigning champ Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy.

Two more featured groups are set to be unveiled when tee times are released.
