2016 WGC-Bridgestone: Tee Times, Pairings and TV Schedule

June 29, 2016

With a star-studded field, this year’s WGC-Bridgestone promises to be a great primer for the upcoming British Open. The European Tour’s French Open falls on the same week, but there are still plenty of big-time names competing at Firestone Country Club, a course that has provided top-tier winners in the past. 

The marquee group is your 1:48 p.m. tee time: Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth and Justin Rose. Johnson is fresh off his U.S. Open victory and is playing in his first event as the third-ranked player in the world. In the 11:48 a.m. group, Aussies Jason Day and Adam Scott tee it up alongside Russell Knox. Day and Scott have combined for five PGA Tour victories in the last four months.

Defending champ Shane Lowry will begin his title defense at 2 p.m. in a group with Bubba Watson and Hideki Matsuyama.
