The U.S. Open always provides interesting pairings for their opening rounds. This year is no exception.

The USGA announced via Twitter that the world's top-three players will be paired for the first and second round of the Open. Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Adam Scott will tee off together at 1:14 p.m. Thursday afternoon and again the following morning at 7:44 a.m.

As usual, Tiger's group is the focus. Last year, Tiger was paired with Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson to kick off the 2012 Open. Woods finished the first round tied for second after shooting a 1-under 69. Mickelson fired an opening round 76, and Bubba shot a 78 en route to missing the cut. The USGA had some fun last year, pairing Carl Pettersson, Charl Schwartzel, Charles Howell III together as well grouping K.J. Choi, Y.E. Yang, K.T. Kim for the first two rounds.

Woods was also paired with Scott and Mickelson in 2008 at Torrey Pines. At that time, Woods still had former caddie Steve Williams on the bag. Five years later, Williams will be handing clubs to his new client, Adam Scott.

Rory's excited about the possibilities.

Here's the full list of tee times and pairings, released Friday afternoon by the USGA:
