With the first round in the books all eyes turn to Round 2 and what Martin Kaymer will do with his three-stroke lead.

The big German goes off early on Friday and will be followed closely by most of the big names in the field, all of whom will tee off in the afternoon.

Here's a look at the tee times for best groups for the second round of the 2014 US Open. All times Eastern.

Dustin Johnson, Jimmy Walker, and Victor Dubuisson (7:18 a.m.) : Nothing over par from these three on Thursday. Johnson was 1 under and the other two shot 70. Another day of that business and they'll be staring at the final few groups on Saturday together.

Bubba Watson, Charl Schwartzel, and Adam Scott (7:40 a.m.): No fireworks out of these three on Thursday (nobody broke par). Can any of them recover on Friday with something special? The greens will be wet enough to make some noise.

Jason Dufner, Martin Kaymer, and Keegan Bradley (8:02 a.m.): This group was incredible on Thursday and posted a cumulative score of 4 under. Everyone will be watching Kaymer but don't sleep on Bradley at 1 under.

Fran Quinn, Donald Constables, and Simon Griffiths (8:46 a.m.): If you had this group as one of the ones to follow on the second day of the United States Open you need to pack your things and head to Las Vegas immediately. Quinn is 2 under, though, and three off the pace. Oh, did we mention he's 49 and a Web.com Tour lifer?

Sergio Garcia, Brandt Snedeker, and Jason Day (1:03 p.m.): Snedeker is the only one who factored prominently in Round 1 with a 1-under 69 but you know Garcia and Day have a monster round in them. Will we see it Friday?

Henrik Stenson, Matt Kuchar, and Lee Westwood (1:14 p.m.): Stenson and Kuchar both shot 69 on Thursday, both are in the top 10 in the world, and both are looking for their first major. Westwood is looking to make the cut after shooting 75.

Webb Simpson, Graeme McDowell, and Rory McIlroy (1:25 p.m.): McDowell is two back, Rory is lurking at 1 over, and Simpson is capable of a 64 on any given day. I'm all in on this group on Friday.

Justin Rose, Phil Mickelson, and Matthew Fitzpatrick (1:36 p.m.): I told you all the big-time groups were in the afternoon. What will Phil do on Day 2? That will be the biggest question after Kaymer posts a score in the morning.

Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, and Hideki Matsuyama (1:58 p.m.): This good-natured group was bouyed by Fowler and his knickers on Thursday. That, and they combined to shoot 2 under. Any of the three could legitimately win this tournament.
