PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- Here's a look at some of the featured groups for the first two rounds of THE PLAYERS Championship this week (click here for tee times):
Tiger Woods/Matt Kuchar/Brandt Snedeker -- Kuchar is the defending champ, while Woods and Snedeker haven't fared as well in this event in recent years. Watch this group live in Friday's second round at 8:39 a.m. ET on PGATOUR.COM's Follow A Group feature
Phil Mickelson/Webb Simpson/Justin Rose -- Wonder if last year's Ryder Cup singles match, with Rose beating Mickelson, will come up in conversation?
Adam Scott/Rory McIlroy/Steve Stricker --Scott is making his first start since winning the Masters. Only one player has ever won the Masters and THE PLAYERS in the same year (Tiger Woods, 2001). Watch this group live inThursday's first round at 8:39 a.m. ET on PGATOUR.COM's Follow A Group feature
Ian Poulter/Nick Watney/Lee Westwood -- Did you catch Poulter's cover photo on Sports Illustrated's special PLAYERS Championship preview? Very dapper.

Rickie Fowler/Hunter Mahan/Jim Furyk -- Furyk and Fowler ran into each other at a local sushi/Thai restaurant on Monday evening. Coincidence?

Graeme McDowell/Keegan Bradley/Bubba Watson -- McDowell won three weeks ago in Hilton Head, while the two Americans are still trying to find the winner's circle in 2013.
