Tiger Woods' $20 million yacht may be named "Privacy", but its owner likely won't be getting very much next week thanks to where he has chosen to dock it for the upcoming U.S. Open in the Hamptons.

Preparations continue to get underway for next week's 2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club.

The 118th U.S. Open will tee off at 6:45 a.m. ET next Thursday.

Mr. Eng was greeted by USGA Managing Director of U.S. Open Championships Reg Jones, and they shook hands and exchanged hats.

The 42-year-old has shown glimpses of his old brilliance this year after a successful spinal fusion last April, but he is still seeking his first tournament victory since 2013.

Gavin Patterson to step down as BT chief executive
The cost-cutting plans were announced alongside BT's full-year results which revealed a 1% drop in revenue to £23.7 billion. The UK group said in a statement on Friday that Gavin Patterson would leave his job later this year.

Woods will play alongside Justin Thomas and Dustin Johnson for 36 holes at Shinnecock Hills, while six-time runner-up Phil Mickelson will begin his latest quest to complete a career grand slam of majors with former winners Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth. Speith won the championship in 2015, McIlroy in 2011.

Those in attendance looking to track the progress of defending champion Brooks Koepka will get to see him play alongside two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson and former world No. 1 and 2015 PGA victor Jason Day.

Three Masters winners have been grouped together, with current champion Patrick Reed set to play alongside Charl Schwartzel and Zach Johnson.

Seven of the world's 10 top-ranked players are in the same half of the draw, with Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler and Hideki Matsuyama also playing early Thursday/late Friday.
