OMAHA, Neb. – The United States Golf Association (USGA) today announced groupings and starting times for the first two rounds of the 2013 U.S. Senior Open Championship, Thursday (July 11) and Friday (July 12), at the 6,711-yard, par-70 Omaha (Neb.) Country Club.

The U.S. Senior Open is a 72-hole, stroke-play competition. A field of 156 players will play 18 holes of stroke play on July 11 and 12, after which the field will be reduced to the low 60 scores and ties. Those players making the cut will play 18 holes on July 13 and 14. If there is a tie upon the completion of 72 holes, a three-hole aggregate score playoff will immediately follow. If this playoff results in a tie, the tied players will immediately continue to play off hole-by-hole until the winner is determined.
