U.S. Open 2011 Tee Times, Pairings: Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy In Same Group

The 2011 U.S. Open tee times and pairings have been announced for the first two days at Congressional Country Club, and the likely most interesting group will tee off on the 10th hole Thursday and first hole Friday at 1:35 p.m. Rory McIlroy, arguably the most colorful player on the tour, is paired up with Phil Mickelson, possibly the most accomplished player in the field, and Dustin Johnson. 

This is the group that will likely attract most of the gallery. McIlroy is a rising star that has captivated audiences recently, and is fresh off a trip to Haiti. Mickelson, with four Major championships, is the most accomplished golfer in the field after Tiger Woods pulled out due to injury. Johnson, meanwhile, has four career PGA Tour wins.

Having Mickelson and McIlroy in the same group may convince fans to come out to Congressional for the first two days. For a full list of pairings, click here.
