The new US Open champion Graeme McDowell will have to wait until just before 2pm on Thursday when he tees off with two former winners of that title, Jim Furyk and Geoff Ogilvy at the Open in St Andrews.

Twice champion at the Open, Padraig Harrington, has 60-year-old Tom Watson – the incredible runner-up to Stewart Cink last year - and 18-year-old Japanese star Ryo Ishikawa to partner him when he tees off at 9.20am.

Darren Clarke, who secured his place at the Open after coming second in the weekend’s Scottish Open, has Canada’s Mike Weir and America’s Davis Love III for company as they tee off just before 10am, while Rory McIlroy starts at 8.20am in a group with Lucas Glover of the USA and South Africa’s Tim Clark.

Tiger Woods will tee off with Colombian Camilo Villegas and England’s Justin Rose at 9.09am in the first round.

At 2.20pm Colin Montgomerie, second to Woods five years ago, starts alongside Retief Goosen and Masters champion Phil Mickelson, who needs a top four finish to have a chance of taking the world number one spot from Woods.
