Open Championship 2018: 411
Dates: July 19-22
Location: Carnoustie Golf Links
Dustin Johnson, Rory Mcilroy, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler & Justin Rose are favorites for The 147th Open Championship Golf. The GM Tipster will provide his thoughts with the Open Championship Golf 2018 tips that he will update throughout the week. Almost all players have come out for a shot and the crowd is growing more and more before Thursday’s first round.
Previous champions at Carnoustie: Tommy Armour (1931); Henry Cotton (1937); Ben Hogan (1953); Gary Player (1968); Tom Watson (1975); Paul Lawrie (1999); Padraig Harrington (2007)
History beckons for bearded Thomas:
Last year, he wore a tie in the first round, this year Justin Thomas confronts Carnoustie with a beard.
And – after extensive research here at TheOpen.com – we think he would be the first bearded golfer since Bob Ferguson, who picked up £ 12 by winning in 1882.
Golf has a long tradition of clean and shaven heroes, but Thomas is looking to change all that this week. Unless Dustin Johnson points out his status as world number one.
“I had two weeks of rest, I was lazy and I could not bother shaving, so I got some compliments on the beard, so I kept it! I would love to be a lucky charm, “he says. .
Carnoustie Golf Links
Golf has been played at Carnoustie since the early 16th century, and in that time the links have earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the most challenging golf destinations in the world.
It’s not just the strong winds blowing along this exposed part of the Angus coast; neither bunkering, which is perfectly positioned to capture anything less than a top quality shot; but it is also a very long and narrow golf course which, at more than 7,400 meters, is the longest course to welcome the Open Championship .
