New PGA champion Brooks Koepka will play alongside Cameron Smith and Dustin Johnson at LIV Golf DC from Friday.
It will be the first time at a LIV Golf tournament that these three play in the same group.
The featured trio will tee off No 1 in the shotgun start at Trump National Golf Course, Washington, D.C.
Since joining LIV Golf for the first US-based tournament in Portland last year, Koepka has been paired with Johnson twice and with Smith three times. Smith, who joined midway through the season, has been paired with Johnson six times, including the final round of the Team Championship in Miami.
But they’ve never filled out an entire threesome until this week.
Cumulatively, they’ve won eight Majors, with Koepka winning his third PGA Championship last week at Oak Hill. It was the first Major won by any LIV golfer.
All three players will participate in the next Major, the US Open at Los Angeles Country Club, from 15-18 June.
In addition to their Major success, the three also are accustomed to lifting LIV trophies. Koepka became LIV’s first two-time individual winner with his win earlier this season in Orlando.
Johnson’s win two weeks ago in Tulsa also made him a two-time winner, while Smith won last year in Chicago in his second LIV start.
