U.S. Open 2011 Tee Times, Pairings: World Top Three In Same Group At Congressional

The tee times and pairings are out for the 2011 U.S. Open at Congressional Country Club, and there are some seriously juicy ones. All three of the top three players in the world will be together in one group, as Luke Donald, Lee Westwood, and Martin Kaymer will all tee off early in the morning from the 10th tee on Thursday. 

For television ratings, putting these three in the same group isn't a bad idea. None of Donald, Westwood, or Kaymer is able to drive ratings by themselves in the United States, but the presence of all three of the top three ranked golfers in the world could be intriguing to casual fans. None of the three would likely to be a headline guy in a group without another star, something which Phil Mickelson can do on his own.
