The 2018 Golf Open Championship will take place this week (19–22 July) at Carnoustie in Angus, Scotland.

It will be the 147th Open Championship and the eight to be played at the Carnoustie Golf Links.

Jordan Spieth takes to the tee as the reigning champion. The American shot a five-under 65 on the opening day of last year’s tournament at Royal Birkdale, which saw him take a share of the lead with compatriots Brooks Koepka and Matt Kuchar.

He would finish each of the next three days at the top of the leaderboard, and in lifting the Claret Jug became only the second player in history to win three of the four majors before turning 24, following in the illustrious footsteps of Jack Nicklaus.

The four-day tournament will be shown exclusively live on Sky Sports, after it had been shown on the BBC from 1955 to 2015. The BBC will have a 2-hour highlights programme each evening.

Sky’s team of commentators and experts include David Livingstone, Rich Beem, Paul McGinley, Colin Montgomerie, Butch Harmon and Sarah Stirk.

Eilidh Barbour will front the BBC’s coverage.
