British Open Live

British Open Live: The sun will rise at 4:56 a.m. BST on Thursday and play in the 149th Open Championship will commence about 90 minutes thereafter.

As for the elements the field will face at Royal St. George’s, the air will be dry (after a very wet summer), the temperatures pleasant and the winds gusty.

The oldest event in golf will return to Royal St. George’s Club as the 2021 Open Championship kicks off on Thursday, July 15. The 149th edition of the tournament will feature a star-studded field, as over 150 of the world’s best golfers compete in the final major Championship this year.

A number of golfers have withdrawn from the Open Championship due to COVID-19. Bubba Watson announced on Sunday that he would not compete after having direct exposure to someone who tested positive. Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama also withdrew, citing a recent COVID-19 diagnosis that hindered his ability to practice ahead of the championship. On Monday, 2015 Open champion Zach Johnson withdrew after testing positive for COVID-19.

Reigning champion Shane Lowry will look to defend his title, but all eyes should be on Jon Rahm, who is looking to bounce back after losing his No. 1 ranking at the Scottish Open last weekend.
