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

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.
