Rory McIlroy has been paired alongside Charl Schwartzel and world number one Dustin Johnson for the first two days of the Open Championship.

The trio will take to the first tee just before 2.50pm on Thursday.
Darren Clarke is first of the Irish out at 9.25am, he is alongside Gary Woodland and amateur Harry Ellis.
