2020 PGA Championship: Second Round Tee Times, How to Watch on TV and Online

Since returning from a fourth back surgery three years ago, Tiger Woods has often stressed the importance of rest and giving his body as much time as possible to recuperate. The 15-time major winner caught a lucky break at the PGA Championship this week, where a long recovery break after the first round could play into his hands.

Woods will begin the second round at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco, California, from tee No.1 at 4:58 p.m. EDT (1:58 p.m. local time) on Friday, alongside world No.1 Justin Thomas and four-time major winner Rory McIlroy, who were his companions for the opening round.

Somewhat surprisingly considering the PGA Championship is only his second start on the PGA Tour since February, Woods was the best of the trio, carding a 2-under par 68 to finish three shots adrift of joint-leaders Jason Day and Brendon Todd, while McIlroy finished even par and Thomas shot a 1-over 71.

Todd and Day will also both start the second round from tee No. 1, with the former heading out at 11:50 a.m. ET alongside Doc Redman and Jason Carson, while the Australian will hit his first tee shot at 4:03 p.m. ET alongside Martin Kaymer and Jason Dufner.

The trio will be followed by a host of contenders, including Brooks Koepka, Xander Schauffele, Justin Rose and Zach Johnson who, like Kaymer, all sit one shot behind the leaders.

Playing alongside Daniel Berger and Steve Stricker, Schauffele will follow Day on the course at 4:14 p.m. ET, with Johnson due out 10 minutes later along with Collin Morikawa and Henrik Stenson. The trio will be followed by Koepka, 2019 U.S. Open winner Gary Woodland and last year's Open champion Shane Lowry, who finished the first round at 2-under par.

Rose will head out at 4:47 p.m. ET alongside Dustin Johnson, who shot a 1-under par 69 on Thursday, and Jordan Spieth, who endured a difficult first round carding a 3-over par 73.

Meanwhile, Bryson DeChambeau and Jon Rahm will headline the morning starts from tee No. 10. DeChambeau, who finished at 2-under on Thursday, will begin the second round alongside Rickie Fowler and Adam Scott at 11:22 a.m. ET, followed by world No. 2 Rahm, Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia 10 minutes later.

Rahm finished even par on Thursday, while Mickelson and Garcia were 2-over and 3-over respectively.
