There are plenty of notable names near the top of the Open Championship leaderboard after two rounds, resulting in several interesting pairings for Saturday's third round. Tiger Woods will begin the day just one stroke off the lead, and he will be paired with a former No. 1 player in the world.
Woods will play with Lee Westwood on Saturday and the two will tee off in the second-to-last pairing of the round. Like Woods, Westwood will begin the day at 2-under after turning in a 3-under 68 on Friday, tied for the best round of the day. Woods and Westwood are scheduled to begin at 10:10 a.m. ET. Those two will draw plenty of attention during ESPN's television coverage, but they aren't the only notable pairing.
Miguel Angel Jimenez, the 36-hole leader, will play with Henrik Stenson while Dustin Johnson will be paired with Martin Laird. Zach Johnson fell out of the lead on Friday, but he is still in contention at 1-under. He'll play with Rafael Cabrera-Bello in the third round. A pair of Masters champions will be paired when Adam Scott and Charl Schwartzel tee off at 9:20 a.m.
