The open golf

Royal Birkdale – Friday 21st July

A mouth-watering battle on the final day of the 2016 tournament saw Henrik Stenson beat Phil Mickelson by three shots whilst carding a joint record eight-under-par of 63, to win his first Open Championship. Since first hosting The Open in 1954, Royal Birkdale has been (alongside Royal Lytham) the most regular venue for the Championship other than St Andrews.
