The Open Championship 2017

Hvor: Royal Birkdale Golf Club, Southport, England

Bane: Par 70. 7 156 yards/6 543 meter. Designet av Frederick G. Hawtree og J.H. Taylor. Åpnet i 1889, flyttet i 1894.

For tiende gang skal The Open Championship, eller British Open om du vil, spilles på Royal Birkdale i Southport. Linksbanen ligger på nordvestkysten av England, ikke langt fra fotballbyen Liverpool. Det er en par 70-bane  med kun to par 5-hull. Banen er kjent for å være en av de mest publikumsvennlige banene, med opphøyde rougher mellom fairwayene. Vær helt sikker på at vinden fra irskesjøen kommer til å spille en avgjørende rolle i kampen om det sagnomsuste troféet, the Claret jug.

Premiepenger: 10,25 millioner dollar

Fem siste vinnere: 2016: Henrik Stenson (SWE), 2015: Zach Johnson (USA), 2014: Rory McIlroy (NIR), 2013: Phil Mickelson (USA), 2012: Ernie Els (RSA), 2011: Darren Clarke (NIR), 2010: Louis Oosthuizen (RSA), 2009: Stewart Cink (USA), 2008: Pádraig Harrington (IRL), 2007: Pádraig Harrington (IRL)
