US PGA Irish tee times.

The US PGA Championship takes place this week and we’ve got all of the tee times for the Irish players.

The second of the four annual Majors, the US PGA Championship takes place on the weekend before Memorial Day in the United States.

Previous Irish success.

After taking part in the Masters last month, the Irish quartet of Rory McIlroy, Shane Lowry, Padraig Harrington and Seamus Power will be in action in Oklahoma and two of them will be able to fall back on previous success in the competition.

Two of McIlroy’s four Major wins have come in the US PGA, with the Co. Down man having lifted the Wanamaker Trophy in 2012 and in 2014.

The 33-year-old will be teeing off alongside two of the biggest names in the sport in Tiger Woods and Jordan Speith, when he takes to course at Southern Hills Country Club on Thursday.

Harrington, Lowry and Power.

Harrington won the 2008 edition of the US PGA, his third Major success in little over a year, at a time when the Dubliner was seen to be breaking the mould for Irish golfers.

14 years on, the 50-year-old is way down the list of favourites in a field packed with younger men, but he will still be looking to make his mark when he tees off with Stewart Cink and Jason Dufner on Thursday afternoon Irish time.

Waterford native Seamus Power will be looking to continue his remarkable rise in the world of golf, while Lowry will aim to kick on after being in contention deep into the Masters, which was eventually won by Scottie Scheffler.

The Offaly man has one Major to his name, which famously came at Portrush in the 2019 Open, and he will be hoping for a good start on Thursday as he aims to take one of golf’s main prizes on the other side of the Atlantic.

Here are the full list of tee times for the Irish players for Thursday’s first round:

(all times listed as Irish times)

2:06pm – Padraig Harrington, alongside Stuart Cink and Jason Dufner.

2:11pm – Rory McIlroy, alongside Tiger Woods and Jordan Speith.

6:58pm – Seamus Power, alongside Russell Knox and Scott Stallings.

7.03pm – Shane Lowry, alongside Brooks Koepka and Adam Scott.

The action across all four days will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Golf, with coverage getting underway at 1pm on Thursday.
