The U.S. Golf Association has announced full-field tee times for the first and second rounds of the 2017 U.S. Open, to be conducted June 15-18 at Erin Hills Golf Course in Hartford, Wisc.

In setting up opening round groupings, the USGA has some traditional leanings, and they’ve followed through again with those for Thursday-Friday.

In a grouping of the last three U.S. Open champions, Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth and Martin Kaymer will play together for the first two days, going off at 8:35 a.m. CT from No. 10 on Thursday.

Jason Day, Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy are also together for the first 36 holes, teeing off in Round 1 at 2:09 p.m. from No. 1.

Phil Mickelson, who said he will likely not play in the Open to attend his daughter’s high school graduation, is currently scheduled to play at 2:20 p.m. with Steve Stricker and Stewart Cink from No. 1. Whichever player is second on the alternate list – and the USGA doesn’t release the priority order of the list – will take Mickelson’s place.

The USGA has held six spots open in the event players get into the top 60 in next week’s Official World Golf Ranking. However, only two players can conceivably do that, meaning another four alternates will get in the tournament.
