The third major of the golf season tees off early Thursday morning with first-round play at The Open Championship on the Old Course at St. Andrews.
Three-time winner Tiger Woods will again look to find his way, six weeks removed from a career-worst round of 85 at the Memorial.
Woods won at St. Andrews in 2000 and 2005, and again at Royal Liverpool in 2006.
The 14-time major champion last won a major in 2007 at the PGA Championship.
He’ll be paired with Louis Oosthuizen and Jason Day for the first two rounds.
Jordan Spieth (Speeth) is halfway to a calendar Grand Slam after winning The Masters and U.S. Open this year.
He would be just the second player in history to win all three events in the same season.
World number-one and defending champion Rory McIlroy will miss the event after injuring his ankle playing soccer over the Fourth of July weekend.
