Notably, Tiger Woods will be joined by Jordan Spieth and Justin Rose. The trio of former U.S. Open Champions will be playing in prime time - at least for those on the East Coast - as they're scheduled to begin at 5:09 p.m. ET on Thursday. Earlier, Brooks Koepka will begin his quest for a three-peat at the event when his first round gets underway at 4:47 p.m. ET alongside Open champion Francesco Molinari and reigning U.S. Amateur winner Viktor Hovland.

The third round of the U.S. Open is already well underway at Pebble Beach, but we still have a ways to go until the real action starts. The leaders don't tee off for a full three hours, with Gary Woodland and Justin Rose set to peg it at 2:45 p.m. PDT, 5:45 p.m. ET. It's going to be quite the spectacle, and you can watch it all in prime time on the East Coast. Hard to beat that.

Pebble Beach rewind: Reliving Tiger's most dominant win

Pebble Beach rewind: Reliving Tiger's most dominant win Many people would call Tiger Woods' historic win at the Masters in April the most impressive feat of his storied career. But when looking for his most dominant performance, there's no doubt it happened 19 years ago at iconic Pebble Beach. As the PGA Tour invades the course's picturesque layout this week for the 119th U.S. Open, it's impossible not to reflect on Woods' romp to a 15-shot victory in 2000, a display that's arguably the best in golf history. The then 24-year-old would end the championship at 12-under par, marking the first time in the event's history that a player finished better than 10-under.

3 p.m.: Tiger found the fairway at the second, then hit an excellent approach in, but the putter remains cold. He misses a makable birdie putt and it never even had a chance. At the third, he finds another fairway. Could use a birdie ASAP.

Rickie Fowler almost kept his birdie train rolling at the eighth, where he hit the flag stick from a green side bunker on his third. He settled for par and remains at three under for the round, two under overall.

2:38 p.m.: Tiger's 14-foot par putt didn't catch the left edge. He's now made three straight bogeys including his final two yesterday, dropping him to one over for the tournament. At the seventh, Rickie Fowler drains a long one for his second birdie in a row, getting him to two under. His three under round is tied for the best on the course, and he's now the closest to the leaders.

2:32 p.m.: Rickie Fowler and Bryson DeChambeau each make birdie at No. 6, which gets Fowler to one under and Bryson to one over overall. Back at the first, Tiger Woods gets his third round underway by missing the fairway with an iron, then chopping out his second shot short of the green and then hitting one of his weakest chip shots of the week. Not a great start.

2:17 p.m.: No one is going crazy low in the morning at Pebble Beach, but England's Tyrell Hatton has made a somewhat significant move. He just made his fourth birdie of the round at the par-4 15th after nearly holing his approach shot for eagle. Hatton is three under on the round, one under for the tournament. Way back at the par-5 sixth, Jason Day rolls in an eagle putt to join Hatton at one under overall. They are the closest two players to the lead, and they're still eight back.

Rickie Fowler just found the green in two at the sixth, giving him a chance to get into red figures for the championship.
