|Title: CURTIS STARTS OPEN DEFENCE WITH FALDO Date: 2004-07-13 GMT: 08:21:27|
Reigning champion Ben Curtis begins his defence of his Open title with Nick Faldo after being paired with the three-time winner and France's Jean-Francois Remesy for the first two rounds.
Faldo was one of the more experienced players in contention when novice Curtis triumphed at Sandwich.
World number one Tiger Woods, who has not won a major for two years, will play with Greg Norman, champion in 1986 and 1993, and Lee Westwood, who has beaten the American in three of their four Ryder Cup clashes.
Despite his high-profile draw, the Worksop golfer is aiming to keep out of the limelight, saying: "We've had Henmania and that's enough.
"Just keep it low-key, stay out of the way and not get caught up in the hype. It's probably the one time you shouldn't do any interviews, but people who don'tcover golf week-in week-out suddenly turn up and want a piece of you.
"This year I'm not doing any and going into it fresh. I'm going to be reclusive."
US Masters champion Phil Mickelson will play with Paul Casey and Japan's Shigeki Maruyama while US Open winner Retief Goosen tees off with Jay Haas and Robert Allenby.
Justin Leonard, the winner the last time The Open was played at Troon, begins his challenge alongside second favourite Ernie Els and Peter O'Malley.
Colin Montgomerie is paired with his Ryder Cup team-mate Thomas Bjorn, the runner-up last year. The Scot and the Dane, who have had a stormy relationship in the past, are joined by American Frank Lickliter.
