Rory McIlroy blew the field away at Quail Hollow in 2015, but has yet to get on track in 2016. McIlroy, the No. 3 player in the World Golf Rankings, remains a U.S. Open favorite and looks to take apart a course he demolished with a score of 21 under in 2015.
He'll head out Thursday with Hideki Matsuyama and the man Matsuyama beat at the Phoenix Open playoff, Rickie Fowler.
Jim Furyk makes his return to the PGA Tour at the Wells Fargo Championship after a long layoff with a wrist injury. The 45-year-old won't get any breaks with his grouping, playing with last week's winner Brian Stuard and Patrick Reed to open the tournament.
Adam Scott, Justin Rose and Bill Haas top the list of remaining marquee groups as all three are potential contenders this week.
