GolfWRX is onsite this week at the 2017 Open Championship at Royal Birkdale for the 146th playing of golf’s oldest championship.
Dustin Johnson enters as the betting favorite this week, followed by John Rahm, who won the Irish Open just more than a week ago. The 22-year-old Spaniard will be a popular pick to win this week; he’s arguably the hottest and most consistent golfer in the world at the moment. The coldest among big name players might be Rory McIlroy, who Open Championship prep included missed cuts at the Irish and Scottish opens the last two weeks.
Royal Birkdale last hosted an Open Championship in 2008, where Padraig Harrington pulled away from final round leader Greg Norman and Ian Poulter to win by four shots. Returning the Claret Jug this week is Henrik Stenson, who topped Phil Mickelson by three shots in an epic Sunday showdown last year at Royal Troon. Enjoy our photos!
