There are currently 38 golfers within seven strokes of the British Open lead, which means Saturday should be mass chaos for most of the third round. The best part about it? We get to wake up on a hot Saturday morning in the US to 10 more hours of golf!

Here are the notable pairings and tee times from Saturday (all times Eastern):

Keegan Bradley and Fred Couples (4:55 a.m.) -- Opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of intensity. Should be good fun even though we won't see them on TV.

Brandt Snedeker and Stewart Cink (6:40 a.m.) -- I bet Snedeker didn't think he'd be this far back after 27 holes.

Harris English and Branden Grace (8:05 a.m.) -- All the talent in the world in this group. A combined age of 48.

Tom Lehman and Mark O'Meara (8:15 a.m.) -- Party like it's the 1990s!

Jason Day and Hunter Mahan (8:35 a.m.) -- Don't sleep on Jason Day during the weekend of a major!

Phil Mickelson and Justin Leonard (8:45 a.m.) -- Mickelson said the course was "too much" for him on Friday. He's going to have to go low on Saturday or he'll be playing at roughly this same time on Sunday, and likely out of serious contention.

Ian Poulter and Bubba Watson (8:55 a.m.) -- Ryder Cup fun here. I could see them coming to blows before the turn, no?

Adam Scott and Charl Schwartzel (9:20 a.m.) -- The two prettiest swings on Tour.

Jordan Spieth and Darren Clarke (9:30 a.m.) -- Clarke is 44, Spieth is 19, golf is awesome.

Angel Cabrera and Ryan Moore (9:40 a.m.) -- Not much chatting going on in this group, probably. Two monster pin seekers, though.

Zach Johnson and Rafael Cabrera-Bello (9:50 a.m.) -- This is definitely the most boring of the last four groups.

Martin Laird and Dustin Johnson (10:00 a.m.) -- Laird is the low Scotsman and will likely remain as such as none of his countrymen is within five shots of him.

Tiger Woods and Lee Westwood (10:10 a.m.) -- Think we'll see any of this group on TV or no?

Henrik Stenson and Miguel Angel Jimenez (10:20 a.m.) -- Feels like one of these guys is going to fall off rather dramatically.

ESPN's coverage starts at 7 a.m.
