British Open History

 
The British Open or what many golf pundits refer to as The Open Championship is the oldest of the four major golf tournaments, which started in 1860. This event takes place in July and is the third major played after The Masters and U.S. Open. England or Scotland hosts the tournament every year and the rotation is based on nine courses.

In the modern era,
Tiger Woods (3), Nick Faldo (3), Pádraig Harrington (2) and Ernie Els (2) have multiple Open Championships.

In 2016,
Henrik Stenson captured the championship from Royal Troon Golf Club in Ayrshire, Scotland. Stenson finished at 20-under 264, the lowest 72-hole score ever in a major. Stenson won by three shots over Phil Mickelson, a runner-up for the 11th time in a major. Ironically, Mickelson won the 2013 Open Championship and Stenson was the runner-up in that event. The victory for Stenson was his first Open Championship and also first major championship in his career. Stenson was listed as high as a 25/1 betting choice to win the Open Championship.

The 2017 British Open will take place at Royal Birkdale Golf Club from Southport, England.
