After winning the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston on Monday, Rory McIlroy took the lead in the FedEx Cup standings, jumping over Nick Watney. Now on Thursday, McIlroy is set to tee off with Watney and Tiger Woods -- who are second and third in the FedEx Cup standings.

Jupiter, Fla. resident Dustin Johnson, sixth in the FedEx Cup standings, has been paired with Brandt Snedeker and Louis Oosthuizen, who are fourth and fifth in the standings. Oosthuizen could easily have won the Deutsche Bank Championship, entering the final round at 19-under, but lost by a stroke, after shooting even par in the fourth round.

The groups for the first two rounds are grouped by ranking in the FedEx Cup standings.

Bubba Watson, No. 10 in the FedEx Cup standings, will tee off with Carl Pettersson and Keegan Bradley.

The winner of the tournament will take home a cool $1.44 million - the same prize as the Deutsche Bank Championship this past week.
