ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (July 14, 2010) - Former ETSU All-American Rhys Davies (Bridgend, Wales) is set to make his second career start at the British Open when he tees off Thursday morning at the historic Old Course at St. Andrews. Davies will begin his first round at golf's oldest major at 9:31 a.m. (ET).

 

Davies, the three-time first team All-American, 10-time collegiate winner at ETSU and current European Tour star will be paired with 12-time winner on tour and 1997 British Open champion, Justin Leonard and the 19th ranked player in the world and last week's Barclay's Scottish Open champion, Edoardo Molinari.

 

Davies, who won his first European Tour event back in March at the Hassan II Golf Trophy in Morocco, will look to win his first major championship this week at the Open Championship. The Open Championship will be the fourth major in which he has participated. He played in the 2007 and 2010 U.S. Open and last year's British Open. Davies is currently the seventh ranked player on the European Tour and the 49th ranked player in the world.

 

The Old Course at St. Andrews will be played as a par-72 and measuring 7,377 yards. ESPN is providing full coverage beginning at 4 a.m. (ET) tomorrow morning and will continue to 3 p.m.
