England’s
Justin Rose has been drawn with world number one Tiger Woods for the first two
rounds of the Open at St Andrews, which starts on Thursday.

Rose,
29, recently won twice on the PGA Tour and will tee off just after 9am local
time with Woods and Colombian Camilo Villegas.

Reigning
Open champion Stewart Cink will start alongside England’s Ian Poulter and
former champion Ernie Els. Masters champion Phil Mickelson plays with Scotland’s
Colin Montgomerie and South Africa’s Retief Goosen.

Elsewhere
in the draw Northern Ireland’s reigning US Open champion, Graeme McDowell, will
tee off with two former US Open champions in American Jim Furyk and Australian
Geoff Ogilvy.

Rose
has risen to 16th in the world rankings on the back of some impressive recent
displays in the United States where he won the Memorial Tournament in June and
this month’s AT&T National.
