KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Scott Stallings will have some assistance to help him through the first two rounds of the British Open.
Tee times and pairings were announced for the 142nd Open Championship on Monday and Stallings' group will include 2009 British Open champion Stewart Cink.
Stallings will tee-off at 7:27 local time on Thursday.
This year's open is being played at Muirfield in Scotland.
Stallings was invited to play on Sunday when Phil Mickelson won the Scottish Open. Mickelson's exempt status allowed Stallings, a first reserve, to slide-in to the Open.
The Knoxville resident has played in three of golf's four major championships-- The Masters, the U.S. Open and the PGA Championship.
Stallings has 2 career PGA Tour wins.
