Despite torrential rains early this week that could affect tournament action and the threat of more severe weather, the 113th United States Open golf championship is scheduled to tee off bright and early Thursday morning at the Merion Golf Club, just outside Philadelphia. It's the fifth time the national championship will be played at the venerable Main Line course.

A quick look at the first round pairings shows how the United States Golf Association (USGA) will feature a number of pro golfers to keep the galleries focused on the action all day long.

Phil Mickelson, still looking for his first US Open title, will tee off from hole No. 11 at 7:11 a.m. Eastern time, paired with Keegan Bradley, the 2011 PGA champion, and Steve Stricker.

The very next trio to tee off on 11 includes Matt Kuchar, who has won twice on the PGA Tour this year. He's paired with Brandt Snedeker, who won the TOUR Championship at the end of last season, and Britain's Justin Rose.
