An's tee time set for Open

Ben An, the reigning United States Amateur champion, will tee off in his third major this year as part of the spoils that go with winning the national amateur championship.

He missed the cut at The Masters and the U.S. Open.

Each major presents various hurdles to overcome and the British Open is no different.

The venue, The Old Course at St. Andrews, features too many pot bunkers to count - each one with its own name.

Add in Mother Nature (rain and wind) and the winner will be a golfer who not only performs well on the links-styled course, but one who can battle the elements the best.

An will seek his first made cut in his final major for 2010 - amateurs are not allowed entry into the PGA Championship.

He'll tee it up with 1998 Open champ Mark O'Meara and Stephen Gallacher for the first two rounds.

Thursday's tee time is 5:15 a.m. EST and 10:21 a.m. EST on Friday.
