Rhys Enoch will make his U.S. Open debut on Thursday morning at Pebble Beach as the former ETSU men’s golf standout tees off at 11:46 a.m. EDT.

Enoch is grouped with Rob Oppenheim and Richard Lee as they will start from No. 10 in round one, while they go out Friday from No. 1 starting at 5:31 p.m. EDT. Thursday’s television coverage begins at 12:30 p.m. EDT on FS1 and moves over to FOX from 7:30-10:30 p.m. EDT. The same broadcast schedule follows on Friday.

Enoch, who is playing in a major championship for the second straight year and third time of his career, secured a spot in the U.S. Open by finishing in the top-14 at the sectional qualifier back on June 3 from  Walton Heath Golf Club in Surrey, England. Enoch turned in a 36-hole score of 8-under-par 136 (66-70) to finish tied for eighth.

Last year, Enoch made the cut at the Open Championship at Carnoustie, while he made his major championship debut at the 2014 Open Championship.

Enoch played for ETSU from 2007-2012 and earned an individual berth to the NCAA Championship in 2010 after sharing medalist honors in the NCAA Regional. Enoch was the 2008 Atlantic Sun Freshman of the Year and four-time all-conference performer.
