Northern Trust Open 2016: Tee Times, TV Schedule, Prize Money

Rory McIlroy Makes 2016 PGA Tour Debut at Riviera
World No. 3 Rory McIlroy begins his 2016 PGA Tour season by debuting at Riviera, host of the Northern Trust Open.

Two of the top three players in the world will tee it up at the Northern Trust Open at Riviera this week. World No. 1 Jordan Spieth, who says he's played Riveria Country Club 30 times, joins World No. 3 Rory McIlroy, who has never played at Rivieria. 

McIlroy slipped to third in the Official World Golf Ranking last year, behind Spieth and Jason Day, and the four-time major winner has been vocal about his mission to reclaim that No. 1 spot.

James Hahn returns as champion, having bested Dustin Johnson in a playoff in 2015 to take home the title. Hahn buried a 24-foot putt for birdie on the third playoff hole to win.

Spieth will tee off with Justin Thomas and Fred Couples while McIlroy joins Matt Kuchar and Hideki Matsuyama. Other marquee groups on Thursday include a Dustin Johnson, Adam Scott, Sergio Garcia threesome, as well as a Bubba Watson, Justin Rose, James Hahn trio.
