The ultimate main of 2019 begins Thursday morning nicely earlier than the solar rises on the East Coast of the US.

The British Open returns to Northern Eire and a designed Royal Portrush Dunluce hyperlinks course for the primary time since 1951. Northern Eire native and 2011 Champion Golfer of the Yr Darren Clarke hits the opening tee shot, climate allowing, at 1:35 a.m. ET (6:35 a.m. native time) from No. 1.

Among the many very large names to look at: Northern Eire’s Rory McIlroy, three-time Open champion Tiger Woods, two-time defending PGA Championship winner Brooks Koepka, a leaner-but-never-meaner Phil Mickelson and 2018 Champion Golfer of the Yr Francesco Molinari.

Thursday’s notable teams and tee instances embrace (all instances Japanese):

Group 8 – 2:52 a.m. Mickelson, Shane Lowry, Branden Grace
Group 19 – 4:58 a.m. Molinari, Bryson DeChambeau, Adam Scott
Group 20 – 5:09 a.m. McIlroy, Gary Woodland, Paul Casey
Group 34 – 7:53 a.m. Justin Thomas, Tommy Fleetwood, Thorbjorn Olesen
Group 35 – 8:04 a.m. Koepka, Louis Oosthuizen, Shubhankar Sharma
Group 44 – 9:48 a.m. Justin Rose, Tony Finau, Lucas Bjerregaard
Group 45 – 9:59 a.m. Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, Keegan Bradley
Group 46 – 10:10 a.m. Woods, Matt Wallace, Patrick Reed

Woods performed two full and one partial observe rounds this week. He has by no means performed Royal Portrush competitively and could or could not have been stiffed by Koepka in his try and get some inside data from Koepka’s caddie and Portrush native Ricky Elliott.

Woods didn’t contact a membership for greater than two weeks after his T-21 end at Pebble Seashore within the U.S. Open and has not performed in competitors because the Open ended greater than a month in the past. He’s performed solely 10 rounds of professional golf since his historic victory on the Masters in April. Woods sits one victory shy from Sam Snead’s file of 82 PGA Tour wins.

For McIlroy, this Open Championship carries each the burden of a serious – one thing he has not received because the 2014 PGA Championship – and of a return to his homeland.

Royal Portrush was re-designed over an 18-month interval particularly for this match and will probably be a course full of spectators, an amazing quantity who possible can’t look ahead to native son McIlroy to seize his second Claret Jug.

World No. 1 Koepka tries to shut out the most effective 16-month run in main championship success since Woods in 2000-01. A victory at Royal Portrush would give Koepka his fifth main title total and his fourth prior to now 14 months.
