US Open pairings: Golf stars abound in 156-man field (+video)
US Open pairings: Tiger, check. Rory, ready. Phil, signed in. Who else might make a splash at Merion this week?
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.
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.
