If the PGA of America wanted to make a splash with their opening round pairings for next week, they found the two names to do it.

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, who have combined to win 19 major championships, will be paired together for the opening two rounds of the PGA Championship next week at Valhalla. Woods and Mickelson will be joined by Padraig Harrington, the 2008 PGA Champion, and will go off at 8:35 AM ET on Thursday and 1:45 PM ET on Friday.

How have Tiger and Phil done when in the same group over the years? The Golf Channel's Ryan Lavner broke down the numbers.

The rest of the pairings are below, with some other juicy groups. Rory McIlroy will play with Bubba Watson and Martin Kaymer, the traditional PGA Championship pairings of the three major winners together, and Jordan Spieth, Adam Scott and Lee Westwood will go out together in a marquee group of big names.
