Kingsport's Cliff Kresge will play in the first group in the first round at next week's U.S. Open.

Kresge qualified last week for the second major of the year at the historic Merion Golf Club outside Philadelphia.

He has been paired with Roger Tambellini and they will tee off at 6:45 a.m., with Kresge hitting the first shot.

Kresge will be making his third appearance in the U.S. Open.
