The Open Championship tee times and TV schedule: Rory McIlroy to play with Leishman and Olesen as Irish Open winner Knox grouped with Tiger Woods

Scroll down for all the Thursday and Friday tee times at Carnoustie

By Gareth Hanna

Rory McIlroy has been paired with Marc Leishman and Thorbjorn Olesen for the opening two rounds of this year's Open Championship.

McIlroy's group will begin at 12.53pm on Thursday and will tee off at 7.52am on Friday.

McIlroy and Olesen also played together during the opening two rounds of the Irish Open earlier this month. The Holywood golfer, of course, endured a tough week on the greens at Ballyliffin.

His final tournament total of -2, in a tie for 28th, betrayed his tee to green brilliance but after a week away from tournament golf to work on it, McIlroy is confident he can get himself into contention at the year's third major championship.

 

Darren Clarke will play alongside Bernhard Langer and Retief Goosen at 9.36am on Thursday and 2.37pm on Friday.

Defending champion Jordan Spieth will tee off at 9.58am on Thursday at Carnoustie alongside Justin Rose and Kiradech Aphibarnrat.

Former world number one Tiger Woods begins his tournament at 3.21pm on Thursday with Irish Open champion Russell Knox and Hideki Matsuyama. That group tees off at 10.20am on Friday.

The last time the Open Championship was played at Carnoustie, there was an Irish winner as Padraig Harrington came out on top in 2007, beating Sergio Garcia in a play-off for the first of his back-to-back Open Championship titles.

Harrington has been grouped with Bubba Watson and Matt Wallace for this week's opening two rounds and will begin at 2.48pm on Thursday.

Shane Lowry begins at 7.41am on Thursday with Tyrrell Hatton and Patrick Cantlay, just one group ahead of fellow Irishman Paul Dunne, who is grouped with Ross Fisher and Austin Cook.

How can I watch The Open?

Sky will be showing the entire thing live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Golf, starting with the first tee time at 6.30am on Thursday and ending with the lifting of the Claret Jug on Sunday afternoon.

BBC Two will show two hours of highlights after each day's play from 8pm to 10pm.
