The 2018 Open Championship, or British Open for us across the pond, July 19-22

Event: 147th Open Championship.

Dates: July 19-22.

Site: Carnoustie Golf Links.

Length: 7,402 yards.

Par: 71.

The course: Carnoustie opened in 1842 with 10 holes laid out by Allan Robertson. Old Tom Morris expanded it to 18 holes in 1867. It has hosted seven British Opens. While the North Sea is not visible from the course, the links is exposed and susceptible to wind. The final four holes measure 1,679 yards and require 15 shots for par.

Field: 156 players (152 pros, 4 amateurs).

Playoff (if necessary): 4 holes, aggregate score.

Prize money: $10.5 million.

Winner's share: $1,890,000.

Defending champion: Jordan Spieth.

Last year: Jordan Spieth picked up the third leg of the career Grand Slam in a most unlikely fashion. He lost a three-shot lead in the final round at Royal Birkdale and began his comeback with a bogey on the 13th hole, when he took an unplayable lie by dropping the ball on the practice range. He followed with a short birdie on the 14th, a 50-foot eagle putt on the 15th, a 30-foot birdie on the 16th and a 7-foot birdie on the 17th. He closed with a 69 for a three-shot victory over Matt Kuchar. Branden Grace set the major championship scoring record with a 62 in the third round.

TV:
Thursday/Friday: Golf Channel -- 1:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Saturday/Sunday:
Golf Channel -- 4:30 a.m. to 7 a.m.
NBC -- 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Pretty good leaderboard after 2 rounds as nobody is running away with it so it should be an interesting weekend.

What a drive by Spieth to open on 1...drove the green on a par-4.

If Tiger continues to be the only one not really making any mistakes, he is gonna win this thing.

Yeah, that would be crazy if he won posting his score before the leaders even hit the course.

Maybe Molinari will just par his way to the win.

Congrats to Molinari on his 1st Major.

He played very consistent golf, which isn't easy to do at Carnoustie.

That putt by Tiger was very unlike Tiger of old that used to hit the back of the cup.
