Tiger Woods is going to have the swankiest accommodations of anyone at the U.S. Open this year.

Via PageSix.com, Woods's yacht has docked in Montauk in the Hamptons in advance of next week's U.S. Open, which will be played at Shinnecock Hills in Southampton, N.Y.

Thursday at Shinnecock should rock as the U.S. Open returns to its roots for the first time since 2004 and its fifth-ever national championship unfolds in Long Island.

Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth, winners in 2011 and '15 respectively, will tee off alongside Phil Mickelson, looking to finally win the tournament after finishing runner-up on six occasions. Woods, Johnson and Thomas are together in the afternoon.

Mickelson will hope to atone for his series of near misses in the tournament, including the last time it was played at Shinnecock Hills in 2004, while Spieth is missing only the PGA Championship, now held by his close-friend Thomas.

Those in attendance looking to track the progress of defending champion Brooks Koepka will get to see him play alongside two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson and former world No. 1 and 2015 PGA victor Jason Day.

The former world number one's boat offers 6 500 square feet of living space, including a master suite and six other bedrooms.

World number four Jon Rahm is the only top-10 player apart from Thomas and Johnson who will start late and then early.
