British Open Tee Times: First-, Second-Round Groupings For Golf’s Oldest Major


July 17, 2017

It’s hard to imagine, but it’s been nearly 160 years since the first British Open, and as they have since 1860, golf’s best players will play four grueling rounds with the Claret Jug at stake this weekend.

This year, Royal Birkdale in England will host The Open Championship, which tees off Thursday morning.

Defending champion Henrik Stenson is in one of Thursday’s earlier groups, going off at 9:47 a.m. local time along side Si-Woo Kim and two-time major winner Jordan Spieth. Masters winner Sergio Garcia is part of another star-studded group with Zach Johnson and Jason Day, while Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy are part of a late grouping that also features Charl Schwartzel.
