2017 British Open tee times, pairings: Complete field for Round 1 on Thursday

The third major championship of 2017 is here, and the pairings for Thursday and Friday's rounds have been released. There are some gems, and if history is any indication, the eventual winner will come from one of these great groups. Birkdale has almost exclusively produced winners who eventually ended up in the Golf Hall of Fame, and I see no reason this year is going to be any different.

Also, since this is The Open Championship, you should pay attention to the tee times. Those of you on the west coast in the United States have the tough decision of whether to stay up late or get up early. Those of us in Eastern and Central time zones are probably best off going to bed after an early dinner (like 4 p.m. early). Get excited about this week's event because it's going to be a great one.
