Featured Groups: Farmers Insurance

Tee times are out for the first two rounds of the Farmers Insurance Open, where Brandt Snedeker is the defending champion and will play with three-time winner Phil Mickelson and 2011 champ Bubba Watson.

Here's more on them, and who else to watch for Thursday and Friday at Torrey Pines:

Tiger Woods-Nick Watney-Rickie Fowler: Woods has won this tournament six times (he also won the 2008 U.S. Open there). Watney is also a past champion at Torrey Pines, having won there in 2009. They'll tee off at 1:30 p.m. ET Thursday on Torrey Pines' South Course and 12:20 p.m. ET on the North Course on Friday.

Bubba Watson-Brandt Snedeker-Phil Mickelson: Snedeker is the defending champion and coming off a third-place finish in the season-opener at Kapalua. He's also finished in the top 10 each of the last three years. As mentioned earlier, Mickelson and Watson also have enjoyed success at Torrey Pines. They'll tee off at 12:30 p.m. ET Thursday on Torrey Pines' North Course and 1:30 p.m. ET on the South Course on Friday.

Dustin Johnson-Keegan Bradley-Vijay Singh: Johnson won at Kapalua earlier this month and is playing for the first time since withdrawing due to illness the following week. Bradley tied for fourth in the opener, while Singh finished 20th in his only start of the year so far, the Sony Open in Hawaii. They'll tee off at 12:20 p.m. ET Thursday on Torrey Pines' North Course and 1:20 p.m. ET on the South Course on Friday.

Hunter Mahan-Bill Haas-Kyle Stanley: A year ago, Stanley led by as many as seven shots in the final round, and three on the 18th, before he tripled-bogeyed the final hole and eventually lost in a playoff. He bounced back, however, with a win the following week. They'll tee off at 1:40 p.m. ET Thursday on Torrey Pines' South Course and 12:30 p.m. ET on the North Course on Friday.
