Doral - Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will be in the same group at this week's Cadillac Championship for the first time this year.

The World Golf Championships event decided to base 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 US 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.

Woods and Mickelson have combined for 122 worldwide wins and 18 majors.

It will be the 27th time they have been in the same group. Mickelson has gotten the better of Woods recently. Woods has shot the lower score only once in the last eight times.
