Russell Henley will play in the British Open for the first time this week in his first season as a member of the PGA Tour.

Henley will play with Jordan Spieth, who became the first teenager to win on the PGA Tour since 1931 by claiming the John Deere Classic on Sunday, and English amateur Matthew Fitzpatrick in the first two rounds. 

They will tee off at 7:50 a.m. on Thursday and 2:49 a.m. on Friday.

The tournament will be played at Muirfield for the first time since 2002. Henley, a Macon native and former Georgia standouts, missed the cut in his first appearance in the Masters and then missed the cut in the U.S. Open last month.
