Former champion Mark O'Meara will hit the first shot of the 146th Open Championship at Royal Birkdale on Thursday.

Rickie Fowler, Adam Scott and Paul Casey will play together and Thursday's first group - out at 1:35 a.m. ET - is Mark O'Meara, the Open champion at Birkdale 19 years ago, Chris Wood and Ryan Moore.

Wood finished fifth at Birkdale in 2008 and won the silver medal as leading amateur, before missing out on the play-off between Tom Watson and Stewart Cink by a single shot the following year at Turnberry.

Harrington might have won at the Scottish Open last weekend but for a wretched 79 in the third round.

Defending champion Henrik Stenson will partner former world number one Jordan Spieth in the first two rounds of The Open at Royal Birkdale. "Maybe we can turn things around a little bit but I need to step it up quite a lot". There's always a chance and I'm going to enjoy the week. Who knows? It might be my only Open as defending champion.

Baleka Mbete to announce secret ballot decision before 8 August
The DA urges Mbete to apply her mind and to rationally decide on the matter of the secret ballot this week. Mbete said she would take into account all viewpoints and make her decision thereafter.

The final group available begin at 9.58am and contains Justin Rose, Justin Thomas and 2010 champion Louis Oosthuizen, with voting closing at midday on Wednesday.

Padraig Harrington, the victor of the last Open to be held at Royal Birkdale in 2008, is part of the first option as he tees off with Pat Perez and big-hitting Thomas Pieters at 9.36am.

Kim Si-woo of South Korea will go out with Stenson and Spieth, while U.S. Open victor Brooks Koepka is playing with local favorite Tommy Fleetwood and world No. 2 Hideki Matsuyama.

That group follows England's Justin Rose - looking to better his memories of Birkdale in 1998 - who plays with 2010 Open victor Louis Oosthuizen and American Justin Thomas at 9.58am.
