Defending champion Padraig Harrington will go head to head with Tiger Woods in next week's US PGA at Hazeltine National.

The duo have been drawn with Rich Beem, who pipped Woods by a stroke to win the Wanamaker Trophy when it was last played at the Minnesota venue in 2002.

It is the third time that Harrington has been drawn with Woods for the opening two rounds this season following their appearances together in the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill at the end of March and the US Open in June.

Graeme McDowell drew Robert Allenby and Dustin Johnson with Rory McIlroy paired with Jim Furyk and Martin Kaymer.

Darren Clarke has been paired with Americans Charles Howell III and Ryan Benzel.
