The day is nearing and fans of the amateur game are excited to see 12 of the game's top amateurs take on Pinehurst No. 2 and the U.S. Open field.

Here's a look at tee times and pairings for the 12 amateurs in the field on Thursday:

Cameron Wilson, 6:45 a.m.: One of the last amateurs in the field and the first to go out. Stanford's recent NCAA Champion surely won't mind the early alarm clock, though. He'll head out with recent amateur- turned-pro Daniel Berger and Brett Stegmaier, who both qualified via sectionals last week. Wilson is in after claiming an alternate spot at the Purchase, N.Y. sectional.

Matthew Fitzpatrick, 7:51 a.m.: Talk about a pairing. Fitzpatrick, the reigning U.S. Amateur champion, who gained entry with that victory, will play alongside defending champion Justin Rose and the universal hopeful Phil Mickelson. It's safe to say that this pairing will draw the biggest following on Day 1.

Oliver Goss, 8:24: Goss, the 2013 U.S. Amateur runner-up, will play alongside fellow Australians Aaron Baddeley and Aron Price. Goss was the low amateur at the Masters in April.

Robby Shelton, 8:46: One of the top freshman this past NCAA season, Shelton qualified via the Memphis sectional qualifier just days after helping Alabama to a second straight national title. He'll play alongside Brady Watt and Matt Dobyns.

Maverick McNealy, Brandon McIver, 8:46: Stanford's McNealy and McIver, of Oregon, both snuck in during sectional qualifying and will play together, starting on No. 10 Thursday morning.

Brian Campbell, 8:57: Campbell, who plays at Illinois but qualified via the Northern California sectional, will tee off along with fellow sectional qualifiers Clayton Rask and Nick Mason. Campbell is one of the nation's steadiest, yet underrated college golfers and could be a contender for low amateur honors.

Will Grimmer, 8:57: Grimmer made headlines last year at Pinehurst, shooting a 59 during the North & South junior. He'll play with Anthony Broussard and Nicholas Lindheim.

Cory Whitsett, 2:20 p.m.: Whitsett, the former Walker Cupper and two-time NCAA champ from Alabama, will play with Danny Willett and Luke Guthrie. A potential star, Whitsett was the overwhelming winner at the Houston sectional qualifier and is a major contender for low amateur honors at Pinehurst.

Andrew Dorn, 2:42:A late addition to the field by way of an alternate position out of the Springfield, Ohio sectional, Dorn is no stranger to Pinehurst. He won the North & South Amateur there last summer and is an underrated contender.

Hunter Stewart, Sam Love, 2:42: Stewart, of Vanderbilt, and Love, who plays at UAB, take the final tee time of the day. They'll play alongside recent amateur-turned-pro Zac Blair, who also qualified via sectional qualifying.
