Pairings to watch at opening round of Travelers

If you are coming out on Thursday, here are the groups to follow at TPC River Highlands:
First tee
12:44 p.m.: Zach Johnson, Kyle Stanley and Fredrik Jacobson: Johsnon is ranked 18th and has won this year. So has Stanley and Jacobson is the defending champion.
12:55 p.m.: Webb Simpson, Bubba Watson, Keegan Bradley: Get here early because you may never see a pairing like this again. The last three major champions - Simpson won the US Open, Watson the Masters and Bradley the PGA - all together in one group is sure to attract the biggest following and get much of the air time on The Golf Channel.
10th tee
7:34 a.m.: Matt Kuchar, Hunter Mahan, Johnson Wagner: Kuchar is ranked seventh in the world and Mahan is ranked 10th and won the Travelers in 2007.
7:45 a.m.: Louis Oosthuizen, Padraig Harrington and Justin Leonard: Three former British Open champions playing together. This is Oosthuizen's first appearance at River Highlands.
8:29 a.m.: Ryo Ishikawa, Patrick Cantlay and John Peterson: This is the first tournament as a pro for Cantlay, who was the world's top-ranked amateur before turning pro this week. Ishikawa could have a lot of his fellow countrymen following him around the course.
