The season's final major, The PGA Championship, takes place Thursday, August 11 at Atlanta Athletic Club. The pairings and tee times for the first and second round were released on Friday.

Charl Schwartzel, Rory McIlroy and Darren Clarke have been paired together for the first two rounds of the PGA Championship, notable since each of them have won one of the previous three majors played this season (Masters, U.S. Open, British Open, respectively). The trio will go off the first tee on Thursday at 1:45 p.m. ET, then will tee off No. 10 at 8:35 a.m. Friday.

Three of the top players in the world -- Lee Westwood, Jason Day and Matt Kuchar -- will be in the group following Schwartzel, McIlroy and Clarke.

Noted golf enthusiast Tiger Woods, a four-time PGA Champion, will play opposite of those three. Woods starts on No. 10 at 8:35 a.m. Thursday alongside Davis Love III and Padraig Harrington. They will start at 1:45 p.m. on No. 1 on Friday.

Defending champion Martin Kaymer will start three groups ahead of this year's major champions. He'll go off the first at 1:15 p.m. on Thursday and will play with former PGA Champions Y.E. Yang and Shaun Micheel.

The past PGA Championship winners -- David Toms, Phil Mickelson and Vijay Singh -- are two groups ahead of Woods at 8:15 a.m. on Thursday. Toms won this championship the last time it was contested at Atlanta Athletic Club in 2001.

World No. 1 Luke Donald will compete alongside Nick Watney and Alvaro Quiros in the group between Woods and Mickelson.
