Defending champion Richard McEvoy will get his title defence under way alongside two Ryder Cup stars at the Porsche European Open on Thursday.

The Englishman was one of the most popular victors on the 2018 Race to Dubai when he won his first European Tour title at the 285th time of asking at Green Eagle Golf Courses and he will have the fans with him again in Hamburg.

He tees off the first alongside countryman Paul Casey and 2018 Masters Tournament champion Patrick Reed at 1.00pm.

Casey's Ryder Cup captain from 2018 Thomas Bjørn tees off at 1.20pm alongside South African Dean Burmester and Finn Kalle Samooja - who lost out in a play-off at last week's Omega European Masters.

Bjørn's successor Padraig Harrington goes off the first at 12.50pm alongside Jordan Smith and in-form Spaniard Adri Arnaus, with American Matt Kuchar, Dane Lucas Bjerregaard and local favourite Max Schmitt getting started at 1.10pm.

The marquee group in the morning contains Austrian Bernd Wiesberger - second on the Race to Dubai Rankings Presented by Rolex - World Number Nine Xander Schauffele and D+D Real Czech Masters champion Thomas Pieters, who go off the tenth at 8.00am.

Star rookie Robert MacIntyre tees off ten minutes earlier alongside Alexander Levy and Ross Fisher, with Jorge Campillo, Andy Sullivan and Paul Waring playing together at 8.10am.
