British Open: First- and second-round groupings
Back then Woods was on a hot streak, going for the third leg of a calendar Grand Slam.
This time it's Rose who is on a roll -- he won the Memorial, had the 54-hole lead in his next tournament, then triumphed two weeks ago at the AT&T National. Meanwhile, Woods has not won since returning from a five-month hiatus earlier this year.
Camilo Villegas of Colombia is the other player in that group, which tees off at 1:09 a.m. PDT.
U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell, who recently won the Wales Open and the U.S. Open, is in the same group with two other U.S. Open champions, Geoff Ogilvy and Jim Furyk.
Masters champion Phil Mickelson will play with Colin Montgomerie, the Ryder Cup captain who was runner-up to Woods at St. Andrews five years ago, and Retief Goosen, who denied Mickelson a U.S. Open title at Shinnecock Hills in 2004.
Lee Westwood, who at No. 3 in the world is the highest-ranked European, will play with Miguel Angel Jimenez and Adam Scott. Defending Open champion Stewart Cink is with Ernie Els and Ian Poulter.
Tom Watson, the runner-up a year ago at Turnberry, is playing with 18-year-old Ryo Ishikawa of Japan and two-time Open champion Padraig Harrington.
