Zach Johnson led the 2013 British Open after the first round but has some monster names right on his tail. Here are some of the groups you'll probably want to follow on Friday during the second round (all times ET).

Also, go to bed early.

Here are the groups and times:

1. Jordan Spieth , Russell Henley and Matthew Fitzpatrick (2:49 a.m.) -- Spieth shot a tasty little 69 on Thursday and has a real chance to make some noise. He also might have the third-best swing in the group.

2.  Lee Westwood Charl Schwartzel  and  Sergio Garcia  (4 a.m.) -- Schwartzel snapped a club on Thursday, which was fun, and what I expected from Garcia.

3.  Adam Scott Matt Kuchar  and  Luke Donald  (4:11 a.m.) -- Donald's chili was running hot (copyright, Lee Trevino) on Thursday with an 80 but Scott (even par) and Kuchar (3 over) could both make moves.

4.  Tiger Woods  and  Graeme McDowell  (4:44 a.m.) -- Louis Oosthuizen withdrew on Thursday so Woods and McDowell will go it by themselves on Friday. Just means more time for Tiger to read his putts!

5.  Bubba Watson Nicolas Colsaerts  and  Dustin Johnson  (8:45 a.m.) -- Johnson and Watson are both under par even though the three men combined to hit two drives on Thursday.

6.  Nick Faldo Tom Watson  and  Fred Couples  (9:01 a.m.) -- Nothing of note from this group on Thursday, which just means Friday will probably be your last chance to watch them play at Muirfield this year, maybe ever.

7.  Justin Rose Ernie Els  and  Brandt Snedeker  (9:12 a.m.) -- Snedeker blew this group away with a 3-under 68 on Thursday. Els and Rose will both have to hustle to make the cut.

8.  Ian Poulter Keegan Bradley  and  Billy Horschel  (9:23 a.m.) -- Again, ALL OF THE EMOTION!

9.  Rory McIlroy Hideki Matsuyama  and  Phil Mickelson  (9:45 a.m.) -- McIlroy is painful to watch right now but Mickelson will be all kinds of fun the rest of the week. I think I saw two of Matsuyama's shots.

10. Zach Johnson , Thomas Bjorn  and Shingo Katayama (10:07 a.m.) -- Johnson leads but Bjorn broke an $80,000 camera on Thursday so I have no idea who's going to be more entertaining.
