Brooks Koepka will be among the early starters as he bids to claim a historic hat-trick of US PGA Championship titles at Harding Park this week.

Walter Hagen won four times in a row from 1924-27 when the tournament was a match play event, but no player has lifted the Wanamaker Trophy three years running since the strokeplay era began in 1958.

Koepka will get his campaign under way from the 10th tee at 8:11am local time (4:11pm BST) on Thursday alongside fellow major champions Shane Lowry and Gary Woodland, with Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose in the following group.

New world number one Justin Thomas, 15-time major winner Tiger Woods and Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy are scheduled to tee off at 8:33am local time (4:33pm BST) in the first major championship of 2020.

Spain's Jon Rahm, who was replaced at the top of the world rankings by Thomas after just two weeks, is among the later starters and is due out at 1:58pm local time (9:58pm BST) alongside compatriot Sergio Garcia and Phil Mickelson.
