The Cadillac Championship decided to based the groups for the first two rounds on the rankings. It’s similar to what the European Tour did in Dubai last month and the U.S. Open did at Torrey Pines in 2008.
That puts Martin Kaymer, the new No. 1., in the same group with Lee Westwood and Match Play winner Luke Donald. However, the greater focus will be on the next batch of players _ Graeme McDowell at No. 4, Woods and Mickelson.
