Tiger Woods' $20 million yacht may be named "Privacy", but its owner likely won't be getting very much next week thanks to where he has chosen to dock it for the upcoming U.S. Open in the Hamptons.

Woods, 42, will be chasing his fourth US Open title at Shinnecock Hills next week as he continues his comeback after almost two years out injured. Woods, Johnson and Thomas are together in the afternoon.

Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth, winners in 2011 and '15 respectively, will tee off alongside Phil Mickelson, looking to finally win the tournament after finishing runner-up on six occasions. He has slowly been working his way back, with a pair of top 10s in his nine starts this year.

Also out early, defending champion Brooks Koepka will tee off at 7.40 AM local time, accompanied by two-times Masters champion Bubba Watson and former world number one Jason Day.
