The first round of the Hero World Challenge begins on Thursday at Albany, a par-72, 7,302-yard course in the Bahamas. Although it’s a no-cut event with only 18 players, the Hero has a stacked field.
The top three players in the World Ranking — Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas — are all in the field, as are top-10 players Hideki Matsuyama (5th), Justin Rose (6th), Brooks Koepka (7th), Henrik Stenson (8th) and Rickie Fowler (9th).
Oh, and of course, Tiger Woods is making his first start since February, too. Check out the tee times and pairings for Thursday’s opening round below.
