U.S. Open 2014 tee times: Pairings and start time for Sunday's final round

Ross Kinnaird

Martin Kaymer is 18 holes from the second major championship of his career, and he'll once again play in the final group on Sunday.

Martin Kaymer wasn't able to maintain his record-setting pace in the third round, but the 29-year-old German enters Sunday in excellent position to win the U.S. Open. At 8-under, he'll begin the round with a five-stroke lead. Kaymer has led wire-to-wire thus far and will once again be in the final group off the tee, this time joined by Rickie Fowler.

After being nearly flawless during the first two rounds on his way to setting the 36-hole U.S. Open record, Kaymer had to scramble on Saturday. He wasn't as sharp off the tee, leading to a few challenging approach shots. Kaymer carded just one bogey during the first two rounds, only to bogey five holes in the third round. Still, despite the struggles, he was able to limit the damage and pick up strokes on some of Pinehurst No. 2's easiest holes. His 72 was less than the course average of 73.8 and allowed him to maintain a healthy lead.

Fowler was one of just two players to card a round in the red on Saturday, moving into a tie for second place with a 3-under 67. He might need a similar round on Sunday if he's going to cut into Kaymer's lead. He'll certainly need to play better in the final group than Brendon Todd did on Saturday when he shot a 9-over 79 playing with Kaymer. Like Fowler, Erik Compton shot a 67 in the third round and will begin Sunday five strokes off the lead. He'll play in the second-to-last pairing, playing alongside Henrik Stenson. Stenson, the No. 2 player in the world, is 2-under through 54 holes. He's leading the field in greens in regulation, hitting 77.8 percent of his greens. However, he hasn't putted well enough to take advantage. If he continues to hit greens at a high rate and can get hot with the flatstick, he could quickly become a factor on Sunday.

Dustin Johnson (2-under) and Brandt Snedeker (1-under) are the only other players under par. They will be paired in the third-to-last group, following Matt Kuchar and Brooks Koepka off the tee. A total of 13 players will begin the final round 1-over or better. None are likely to be a factor unless Kaymer falters, but if he does and a player within range can card a round under par then things could get very interesting. The late groups will begin teeing off at 2:30 p.m. ET with the final groups going off after 3 p.m. Kaymer and Fowler will step to the first tee at 3:35 p.m.

While they would need a stunning turn of events to be a factor on Sunday, Adam Scott and Rory McIlroy will form one of the notable early-afternoon pairings. Both will begin the round at 3-over. They are scheduled to tee off at 1:45 p.m. Phil Mickelson is 5-over heading into the final 18. He'll tee off at 12:39 p.m., playing with Todd.
