Ireland's Leona Maguire will begin her quest for a first major title alongside Korea's Inbee Park and Yealimi Noh of the USA in the opening two rounds of the AIG Women's Open at Carnoustie this week.

Maguire will relish playing alongside Park, who has an incredible seven majors under her belt already and 31 professional wins to her name.

Park is one of the favourites going into the tournament, while the 20-year-old Noh comes into the major on the back of some decent form, most notably a third place finish at The Amundi Evian Championship in July.

Maguire, who will tee-off at 12:27pm, finished tied for sixth at the same tournament at the Evian Resort Golf Club and has been enjoying a fruitful summer as she searches for her first LPGA Tour win.

World number one Nelly Korda gets her chase for a second major underway alongside Japan's Nasa Hataoka and England's Charley Hull.

The 23-year-old American, who claimed gold at the Tokyo Olympics earlier this month, is aiming to win her second major this year, following her triumph at the KPMG Women's PGA Championship in June.

Korda will tee off at 8:09am, while defending champion Sophia Popov will take the course at 12:05pm in a marquee group that also includes Sei Young Kim and Jessica Korda.

A trio of major winners are in the 7:47 am slot for the first round, Danielle Kang joined by Patty Tavatanakit and Alim Kim, while Lydia Ko goes off at 7:58am alongside Ayaka Furue and Jennifer Kupcho.

The R&A has said that up to 8,000 fans per day will be allowed to attend the tournament at Carnoustie, following approval from the Scottish government.

Stephanie Meadow will miss out on the event after an injury forced her to withdraw from the Women’s Scottish Open at the second hole last week.
