Koepka is looking to become the first player to win the same Major Championship three times in a row since Peter Thomson, who recorded his hat-trick at The Open Championship from 1954 to 1956.

The 30-year-old will start his first round from the tenth tee at 8.11am local time alongside fellow Major Champions Shane Lowry and Gary Woodland.

Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy will get his campaign under way at the first Major of 2020 in the company of new World Number One Justin Thomas and 15 time Major Champion Tiger Woods at 8.33am, also from the tenth tee.

Some of the other groups to keep an eye on in the morning include Justin Rose, Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth, who start at 8.22am, and the 8.00am starters Henrik Stenson, Collin Morikawa and Zach Johnson.

On Thursday afternoon, Spain's Jon Rahm tees off at 1.58pm alongside compatriot Sergio Garcia and American Phil Mickelson in another stellar three-ball.

Meanwhile, Tommy Fleetwood, Viktor Hovland and Hideki Matsuyama will begin their opening rounds at 1.36pm.
