There are two Irish players in the field - Rory McIlroy and Shane Lowry.

McIlroy begins his challenge for the career Grand Slam at 3.42 Irish time in the company of Jon Rahm and Xander Schauffele.

Lowry bids for a first green jacket alongside Justin Rose and Matt Kuchar from 5.48pm.

The defending champion is American Dustin Johnson.

McIlroy has been working with a new swing coach, Pete Cowen, and he's hopeful he can fix issues in his game.
