Carnoustie -Former world number one Tiger Woods much-anticipated return to the Open after a two year hiatus will be a tardy one as his tee-time for Thursday's first round at Carnoustie is 15:21 local time.
The 42-year-old - three of whose 14 Major wins have come at the Open with his last in 2006 - missed the previous two editions because of injury.
He will be partnered by Japan's Hideki Matsuyama and Scotland's recent Irish Open champion Russell Knox.
In the absence of 1999 champion Paul Lawrie, who is ruled out through injury, fellow Scot and 1985 winner Sandy Lyle will hit the opening tee shot at 06:35.
Five-time major winner Phil Mickelson tees off shortly after 08:00 with defending champion Jordan Spieth starting his bid for back-to-back titles at 09:58 alongside Britain's Olympic champion Justin Rose and big-hitting Kiradech Aphibarnrat of Thailand.
Rory McIlroy, who lifted the Claret Jug in 2014, tees off at 12:53 alongside Australia's Marc Leishman and Denmark's Thorbjorn Olesen.
