Defending champion Bubba Watson starts his defence in an all-American group that includes former FedExCup champions Jordan Spieth and Billy Horschel, while last year's runner-up Kevin Kisner kicks off his week against Ian Poulter.
Rickie Fowler is the only player inside the world's top 20 not featuring at Austin Country Club, where a 64-man field is split into 16 groups for three days of round-robin match play golf.
