Rory McIlroy has been grouped alongside world No 1 Scottie Scheffler and Xander Schauffele – the two players above him at the top of the world rankings – for the first two rounds of the 124th US Open.

McIlroy, who won the 2011 US Open and is searching for his first major victory since 2014, has been given a late-early draw as he tees off at 1.14pm local time (6.14pm BST) on Thursday at Pinehurst No 2.

The Northern Irishman plays alongside Schauffele, who claimed a maiden major title in the PGA Championship last month and has finished no worse than 14th in his previous seven US Opens, with pre-tournament favourite Scheffler completing the star-studded threeball for the first two days.
