The first shot will be hit by 60-year-old two-time major champion Sandy Lyle, who will make his final Open appearance unless he can finish in the top 10.

Woods is in a group featuring Lyle’s fellow Scot, Russell Knox, who won this month’s Irish Open.

Rose goes out with defending champion Jordan Spieth of the United States.
