DUBLIN, Ohio — Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods will play together in the Memorial Skins Game, only the second time they have competed against each other in the same group.

The Memorial Skins Game is Wednesday at Muirfield Village and involves four players in two groups. Nicklaus and Woods will be joined by Stewart Cink and Kenny Perry, the defending champion at the Memorial. The other group will have Vijay Singh, Padraig Harrington, Jim Furyk and Camilo Villegas.

The only other time Nicklaus and Woods played in the same group was the 2000 PGA Championship, which Woods won for his third consecutive major.
