1217: Before we get stuck into the golfing banter and the predictions and all manner of nonsense, I had better chuck you some times so you know, who, how, why and where the big boys are teeing off....

BBC Sport's Rob Hodgetts: "Last time no Americans held a major was in '94. One of 'em was Els. He won last US Open at Congressional. 3rd in 2010. Just saying"

1208: Opening group on the first tee is Korean Daehyun Kim, American Chez Reavie and Ireland's Shane Lowry. On the 10th tee is Chad Campbell, Harrison Frazar and Marc Turnesa. A round-up of the big names coming right up.

1203: It's the US Open. Number 111. At a course in Maryland called the Congressional Country Club. Four days of hot golfing action. Plenty of drama on the way. Thanks for joining us.

1157: Morning. The world's top golfers are currently buffing up their clubs, combing their fancy new bags, taking some calming words from their caddie and getting ready for a rather big golfing tournament. It's starting in three minutes......welcome.
