LYTHAM ST. ANNES, ENGLAND (AP) - Tiger Woods gets a familiar face for the first two rounds of the British Open.

Woods is in the same group with Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia. It will be the fourth time in the last nine Opens for Woods that he plays alongside Rose. They also were in the same group at Muirfield in 2002, Carnoustie in 2007 and St. Andrews in 2010.

Luke Donald, the world No. 1 in search of his first major, is with Phil Mickelson and Geoff Ogilvy. Lee Westwood is with Masters champion Bubba Watson and Toshinori Fujimoto.

The field is 157 players, one over the limit. Two players would have to withdraw for the first alternate, Ben Crane, to get into the championship.
