The Open 2018 The Open held at Carnoustie Golf Links, July 19-22, 2018

The Open 2018 - Final Day and what a Day!

Francesco Molinari becomes the first Italian to win a Major!

Francesco Molinari wins the open after a terrific battle holding off Tiger Woods, Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy. He carded a faultless 69 in windy conditions to finish -8. He finished ahead of home favourites Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy, both on -6

Tiger Woods looked close to winning another major at one point but fell back to -5, with the day 3 leader Jordan Speith on -4.

"It is absolutely amazing," Molinari said. "I think it will take a long time to sink in. It has been a great week"". "The course bit me a few times in the first two days, but to go bogey-free around this track at the weekend is incredible."

Molinari, ranked 15th in the world, had been tipped by a number of experts before the tournament as a player to watch at Carnoustie - and he proved them right with an assured display over the four days.

He had been backed on the strength of the last few months that saw him claim the PGA Championship at Wentworth - his biggest win on the European Tour - and his maiden PGA Tour victory at the Quicken Loans Classic.

What another classic at Carnoustie!

The Open 2018 - Saturday Day 3 and what a day!

What a days golf today. Jordan Speith was in total command all day after starting with an eagle on the first, and his putting was back to his best. Can he read the greems or what! It's almost magical the way he can putt.

Tiger Woods worked his way through the field which was great to see. His focus and course management are second to none. This round for him must have been a great positive, he hit solid shots and great drives. He knew what was required and he produced it in true Tiger style. Great news for tomorrow!

Rory McIlroy and Tommy Fleetwood will look back on this day and say they had missed opportunitiies and could have been closer to the top. BUT what of Justin Rose ! what a round he had 64! His lowest score in a major and who knows could he be in the mix for tomorrow as well? It's an all americaon top 3 but that can change at Carnoustie. The weather is due to change with the wind expected to be stronger later in the day. So those who get early tee times may benefit? who know's !!!

So it looks like it will be all down to the wire! Can Speith hold his nerve and make it back to back Open's? not done since 2008. Is he aiming to emulate Padraig Harrington by winning back-to-back Open titles at Carnoustie and Royal Birkdale. Don't rule out Rose or Woods will they make it theirs? What about McIlroy or the two americans Schauffele and Kisner. So many could win! it's going to be an exciting day.

The Open 2018 - It's the weekend and it's all to play for

Over the past two days we have had bright sunshine and rock hard surfaces, and rain with slow fairways. Carnoustie is surely living up to it's name. We still haven't had the heavy rain and strong winds but let's hope we don't!

Only 6 shots separate the top 20 players so it's tight and all to play for.

You will find all the Tee Times, News and Results on the daily pages here.

Whatever happens it surely will be another memorable major.

The Open 2018 - It's nearly time to hit the links!

Tomorrow is the first day at Carnoustie and all the players are getting prepared for what will be an exciting 4 days at The Open.

Carnoustie has a reputation for being extremely tough and this year will be no different. The weather plays a huge part and it being so dry for so long means golfers strategies will have to change. It's not a "Dartboard" like some of the US courses, hit high into the greems and it will stop. Do that at Carnoustie and you will end up in serious trouble. It has bunkers that will put fear into anyone who lands in then. So how do you play this nasty course? Well it's all about course management and strategy regarding the weather conditions. Record 18 time major winner Jack Nicklaus quote in 2007 "I've always regarded Carnoustie as the hardest of all the championship venues. It's got all the features you would want, including a few blind shots. It's what you would expect from Scottish golf.

Tiger Woods in quoted this year that Carnoustie gives him many options to win another major! will it be him? Will it be Jordon Speith who retains the crown? or Rory McIlroy? or perhaps a rank outsider maybe!

Whatever happens it surely will be another memorable major.

The Open 2018 preview

The 2018 Open Championship will be the 147th Open Championship, held 19–22 July 2018 at Carnoustie Golf Links in Angus, Scotland. It will be the eighth Open Championship played at Carnoustie.

Golf has been played at Carnoustie since the early 16th century, and in that time the links have earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the toughest golf destinations in the world. It’s not just the strong winds which blow along this exposed stretch of the Angus coast; nor the bunkering, which is perfectly positioned to capture anything less than a top-quality shot; but it is also a very long, narrow golf course that, at 7,421 yards, is the longest of any of the Open venues. As Sir Michael Bonallack put it, “When the wind is blowing, it is the toughest golf course in Britain. And when it’s not blowing, it’s probably still the toughest.”

Brooks Koepka returns to The Open for a second time as the US Open Champion. Being on form he must start as one of the favourites, good odds at 25/1. Dustin Johnson leads the pack at the moment at 12/1, followed by Jordan Speith & Rory Mcilroy at 14/1 and Rickie Fowler and Justin Rose at 18/1 & 20/1 respectively.
