Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy will play in the same group at the European Tour's Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship this week, grouped with defending champion Jamie Donaldson early Thursday and late Friday.

Mickelson will debut a new driver in Abu Dhabi, addressing a part of his bag that he tinkered with often last year. McIlroy, by the way, seemed to find happiness with a new big stick late in 2013.

Other top groups include 2013 FedEx Cup and Race to Dubai winner Henrik Stenson with Luke Donald and Thomas Bjorn, as well as three-time winner Martin Kaymer (2008, '10, '11) with Sergio Garcia and Matteo Manassero.
