The Open Championship 2017

2017 British Open


Royal Birkdale GC

July 20 - 23, 2017

‘Royal Birkdale is also a fine links course and I have always thoroughly enjoyed playing there. I think the players and the fans will be excited to see the top players playing Birkdale once again in 2017.' – Tom Watson

Royal Birkdale will host The Open for the tenth time in 2017. Ireland’s Padraig Harrington won by four shots from Ian Poulter the last time the Championship was played here in 2008. Mark O’ Meara emerged victorious from a play-off with Brian Watts in 1998 and Ian Baker-Finch enjoyed a two-shot victory over his fellow Australian Mike Harwood in 1991.

Another Australian, Peter Thomson, won The Open when it was first staged at Royal Birkdale in 1954, and again in 1965, and he was joined by Arnold Palmer (1961), Lee Trevino (1971) and Johnny Miller (1976) as winners in the North West.

The 2017 British Open promises to thrill as Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia and Rickie Fowler set out for the coveted Claret Jug.
