After missing out on the career grand slam at the Masters, Rory McIlroy will partner the next two players with a chance to achieve the feat in next week’s US Open.

McIlroy, who needs to win at Augusta National to complete a full set of major titles, will play alongside Phil Mickelson and Jordan Spieth in the first two rounds at Shinnecock Hills, starting at 08.02am local time (13.02pm Irish time) on Thursday.

Mickelson, who has finished runner-up a record six times, can complete the grand slam with victory in the US Open, while Spieth’s missing major is the US PGA Championship.

Shane Lowry came through a qualifier in Columbus, Ohio on Monday in order to secure a spot at the year’s second Major and he will get underway toward the tailend of the field on Thursday at 2.09pm (7.09pm Irish time) alongside American Chez Reavie and another to be confirmed qualifier.

Graeme McDowell completes the Irish contingent in the field. Eight years on from his US Open triumph the Northern Irishman partners fellow former champions Lucas Glover and Webb Simpson at 1.25pm (6.25pm Irish time) on Thursday.

Defending champion Brooks Koepka is also among the early starters on the opening day, the American teeing off from the first at 07.40am (12.40 Irish time) alongside two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson and former world number one Jason Day.

They are followed 11 minutes later by an all-English group of Tyrrell Hatton, Danny Willett and Ian Poulter, while Masters champion Patrick Reed tees off at the same time from the 10th alongside Zach Johnson and Charl Schwartzel.

Sergio Garcia, Jon Rahm and Rafa Cabrera Bello make up an all-Spanish group at 13.14p, (18.14pm Irish time) on Thursday, with world number one Justin Thomas, 2016 champion Dustin Johnson and 14-time major winner Tiger Woods getting their tournament under way at 13.47pm (18.47pm Irish time).
