The Open week in social media

Tomorrow at 06:35 local time the 1985 Open champion Sandy Lyle will tee off and will give the start of the 147th Open Championship. 156 players will give their best to lift the Claret Jug on Sunday, but the weather forecast for some rain on Friday and gentle breeze during the weekend means that only the best from the best will contend on Sunday.

The defending champion Jordan Spieth doesn’t have the best season in his career so far but he hope to repeat his magic performance from last year Open at Royal Birkdale.


It seems that the 2013 Open champion Phil Mickelson thinks that the short game will be the key this week at Carnoustie that’s why he is practicing hard.

Tiger Woods is the many people’s favorite this week when he comes back at the Open after missing the last two editions of the tournament due to injury.

World number one Dustin Johnson will make his first appearance since last month U.S. Open Championship where he was leading after the first three rounds, but finished 3rd, two shots behind the champion Brooks Koepka.

Padraig Harrington, the last Carnoustie Open champion is back on the course and ready to win his 4th career major championship.

The Masters champion Patrick Reed,who finished T23 on the links at Gullane Golf Club last week at the Scotish Open, is ready to contend and win his first Open.

Lee Westwood, who will make his 24th Open appearance in a row is also impressed by the speed of the fairways.

Paul Casey is another of the home favorites who will pursue his first major title.
