US Open golf – first-round tee times

Golf

ERIN, Wisconsin – South Africa will have eight players in the US Open field at Erin Hills in Wisconsin starting on Thursday.

First off will be the highest-ranked local Branden Grace, who will tee it up at 2.24pm SA time alongside American duo Kevin Kisner and Billy Horschel. Grace has finished tied for fourth and tied for fifth over the last two years, so can he go all the way this weekend?

The very next group sees two-time US Open champion Ernie Els lining it up with two more Americans in Webb Simpson and Lucas Glover.

The other South Africans are George Coetzee, Charl Schwartzel and Louis Oosthuizen (who will play together with Henrik Stenson), Brandon Stone, Oliver Bekker and Thomas Aiken.

Former Masters champion Schwartzel is perhaps Mzanzi’s best bet for the title due to his recent form.
