Open: Tee times and star groupings

Home

The tee times and groupings for the first two rounds of the Open Championship were released on Monday.

Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson, the two men who battled it out for the US Open title last month, are in the same group.

Spieth won that battle at Chambers Bay, of course, and will begin his bid for the third leg of an unprecedented grand slam at 9:33am on Thursday.

Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama will play alongside the two Americans.

The winners of the last three Open Championships at St Andrews have also been grouped together for the first two rounds. Tiger Woods, champion in 2000 and 2005, will play alongside 2010 winner Louis Oosthuizen and Australia’s Jason Day at 9:55am.

Five-time champion Tom Watson gets his final Open appearance under way at 8:33am alongside 2012 winner Ernie Els and American Brandt Snedeker.

Justin Rose and Scottish Open winner Rickie Fowler are in another all-star group, joined by three-time Open champion Nick Faldo.

They get under way at 2:45pm, immediately after the group containing Matt Kuchar, Phil Mickelson and Henrik Stenson.
