The first World Golf Championship event of 2017 has arrived, but it won't be played in the United States.

The WGC-Mexico Championship begins Thursday at a brand new course, Club de Golf Chapultepec in Mexico City, after the tournament moved from Trump Doral. Adam Scott is the defending champ, finishing 12 under at Doral last year to beat Bubba Watson by one.

Scott tees off with Jordan Spieth and Henrik Stenson for his first round at 1:53 p.m. EST on Thursday.

While the WGC brings together the top players in the world, it’s also the return of one of golf’s biggest stars in Rory McIlroy. McIlroy hasn’t played since a rib injury sidelined him in mid-January. He’s grouped with Dustin Johnson and Hideki Matsuyama for a 12:36 p.m. tee time Thursday. They are followed by another marquee grouping of Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler and Sergio Garcia at 12:47 p.m. Full tee times are below.
