Tiger Woods will begin his first Major of 2014 at 9.04am on Thursday as he is drawn alongside Henrik Stenson and Angel Cabrera for this week's Open Championship.

Tiger Woods has been drawn alongside Henrik Stenson and Angel Cabrera for his first Major appearance of the season at this week's Open Championship in Liverpool.

The 14-time Major winner, who won the event the last time that it was held at Hoylake, in 2006, missed The Masters and US Open as he recovered from back surgery.

The American has an early tee-off time of 9.04am on Thursday, with world number two Stenson and Argentine Cabrera, a former Masters and US Open champion, his playing partners.

Rory McIlroy starts his tournament 22 minutes later, while Phil Mickelson will begin his defence of the Claret Jug at 2.05pm alongside two-time winner Ernie Els and reigning Masters champion Bubba Watson.

Aiming for his third triumph in as many weeks, in-form Englishman Justin Rose tees off at 2.27pm, alongside world number one Adam Scott and Jason Dufner, who lifted the USPGA title in 2013.
