The marquee group for the beginning of U.S. Open practice rounds Monday features Tiger Woods, former Stanford teammate Casey Martin, current Stanford sophomore Cameron Wilson and Oregon State junior Nick Sherwood.
The foursome tees off at Olympic Club at 7 a.m. in the first group of the day. Master's champion Bubba Watson is slated to tee off in the second group 15 minutes later.
Players trickled in at various times this week, with several sneaking in some time at the practice range and on the course in anticipation of Thursday's first round.
Woods already has made his way around the new layout at Olympic Club in recent weeks. On Monday, he gets a chance to catch up with Martin and to play in a group that features two amateurs.
A flood of players is expected at Olympic Club on Monday, given the PGA tournament in Memphis ends today.
