Irish duo to face off

US Open champion Rory McIlroy and British Open counterpart Darren Clarke will play together in the first two rounds of the US PGA Championship at the Atlanta Athletic Club this week.

Masters champion Charl Schwartzel of South Africa makes up the three-ball. Ireland's other Major winners also go out in strong groupings. Graeme McDowell is alongside American Zach Johnson and Australia's Geoff Ogilvy.

And Padraig Harrington will start on the 10th with Tiger Woods, who made his long-awaited return from knee injury on Thursday at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, and next year's US Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III, who won the event back in 1997.
