A closer look at the Saturday tee times at the PGA Championship, which will feature a handful of interesting pairings:

10:25 a.m.: Phil Mickelson, Vijay Singh

This would have been a huge pairing – about 10 years ago. Now it is just for nostalgia. Don't be surprised if Mickelson challenges Oak Hill in typical Lefty fashion.

11:05 a.m.: Keegan Bradley, Tiger Woods

A double-bogey at the 18th moved Bradley into a third day alongside Tiger. Here's guessing that both of these guys get aggressive, with the driver coming out a bit more often. It could be beautiful. It could be ugly.

1:35 p.m.: Hunter Mahan, Rickie Fowler

Half of the Golf Boys in this pairing. Gallery here will have some interesting colors to pay attention to, considering the fashion choices for both players.

2:35 p.m.: Henrik Stenson, Justin Rose

Stenson finished runner-up at the Open Championship and Rose is the defending U.S. Open champ. Lots of good mojo here.

2:45 p.m.: Matt Kuchar, Jim Furyk

Kuchar is looking for his first major title in what has been an incredible career. Furyk is looking to break a 10-year drought in the majors. Both are as steady as they come.

2:55 p.m.: Jason Dufner, Adam Scott

Scott got his major moment in April. Dufner has been waiting for his since losing in a playoff to Bradley in 2011.
