There are plenty of storylines to watch at this week's Open Championship, from Tiger Woods' first major of the year to Phil Mickelson's quest for another Claret Jug.

The pairings and tee times for the second round were announced Monday at Royal Liverpool – and here's a look at some of the standout pairings.

LATE-GROUP FIREWORKS: Tiger Woods is teeing it up with Angel Cabrera and Henrik Stenson. Woods will look to keep showing that he's rid himself of some of the rust he showed at the Quicken Loans National as he plays his first major of the season. Cabrera (2014 Greenbrier Classic) and Stenson (2013 FedEx Cup winner) figure to provide good company as Woods looks to feed off of his opening 3-under 69.

YOUNG GUNS: Two groups after Woods will be the trio of leader Rory McIlroy, Hideki Matsuyama and Jordan Spieth. They are a combined 67 years old, with McIlroy owning two major titles at the age of 25. Spieth has shown flashes of brilliance in major settings, including leading on Sunday of the 2014 Masters. Matsuyama picked up his first PGA Tour win this season.

BACK FOR MORE: Phil Mickelson returned the Claret Jug on Monday at Royal Liverpool and now is pairing with Bubba Watson and Ernie Els as he tries to take it back across the pond with him. This group has 12 major titles between them – but struggled in the first round.

ONE-TIMERS: The pairing of Justin Rose, Adam Scott and Jason Dufner feels like a group that also has a handful of major titles, but each is still looking for his second major triumph. Rose entered the week as the hottest player in the group, having won his last two starts, including the Scottish Open on Sunday; Mickelson won the 2013 Open Championship after winning the Scottish. Scott shone Thursday with a 68
