Open organisers have opted to move the tee times for the final round of The Open Championship at Royal Portrush forward to avoid the worst of the bad weather on Sunday.

With storms set to roll in over the north coast in the early evening, organisers have elected to have the first group tee off at 7.32am in order to get the event finished quickly.

That means leader Shane Lowry (-16) and second-placed Tommy Fleetwood (-12) head off at 1.47pm tomorrow to start their final rounds at the Dunluce links.

Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell, after his excellent two-under 69, has been paired with England's Tom Lewis, with the duo teeing off at 11.22am.

Royal Portrush's head professional Gary McNeill will get a second round at The Open as he will be required to partner odd man out Ashton Turner in the first pairing at 7.32am.

McNeill played the third round with England's Paul Waring and found fame when he sunk a fabulous 40-foot putt for birdie on the 17th.

Here are the tee times for the final round of the 148th Open Championship at Royal Portrush Golf Club in their entirety:
