Tiger Woods will play the opening two rounds of the U.S. Open with Justin Thomas and Dustin Johnson, which feels like a grouping of Nos. Woods' yacht "Privacy" docked at the Montauk (N.Y.) Yacht Club on Tuesday, and the vessel will serve as his base for the major tournament, which will begin June 14 at Shinnecock Hills in Southampton, N.Y. It's not the first time he's done this-he also pulled the Privacy into a marina for the U.S. Open in 2006.

Jason Day, Bubba Watson and Brooks Koepka (who have a combined four major championships) will play together for the first 36 holes at historic Shinnecock.

Those in attendance looking to track the progress of defending champion Brooks Koepka will get to see him play alongside two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson and former world No. 1 and 2015 PGA victor Jason Day.
