If you're waking up in a few hours to catch the British Open live, you can watch former IMG standout Peter Uihlein at Royal St. George's in Thursday's opening round.

Uihlein is playing this week, because he captured last year's U.S. Amateur which earned the Oklahoma State rising senior exemptions into both U.S. and British opens as well as an invitation into the Masters.

Uihlein tees off No. 10 alongside Geoff Ogilvy and Miguel Angel Jimenez at 8:09 a.m. (local time).

That's about 3 a.m. here in Florida. Television coverage is scheduled to start at 4 a.m. on ESPN.
