Where is The Open Championship 2019 played?


The 2019 Open Championship will be played at Royal Portrush Golf Club, County Antrim, Northern Ireland. Royal Portrush has hosted the Open Championship once before, in 1951, when Max Faulkner triumphed. The par 71 coastal links course plays 7,337 yards.

Who holds The Open Championship golf title?


The current champion is Francesco Molinari, who won the 147th Open at Carnoustie in 2018 with a score of 276. The purse at the 2018 Open Championship was $10.5m. Previous winners include Jordan Spieth (2017), Henrik Stenson (2016), Zach Johnson (2015), Rory McIlroy (2014), Phil Mickelson (2013), Ernie Els (2012) and Darren Clarke (2011).

Who will win The Open Championship golf title in 2019?


Links courses are notorious for offering every type of weather imaginable, often bringing four seasons in one day. The characteristics of certain courses can change significantly depending on Mother Nature. Wind and rain is usually one of the major topics of discussion before any tournament held on a links course, so making predictions ahead of the day is often thankless. Greens on a links course are often harder to read in terms of line and pace than some inland courses. Putting ability, more than any other factor, comes into sharp focus when looking for the winner. Previous winners such as Tiger Woods (2000, 2005, 2006) Phil Mickelson (2013) and Rory McIlroy (2014), plus Scottish Open winners Rickie Fowler (2015) and Justin Rose (2013) must all come under consideration. Adam Scott’s links record is also solid, and back-to-back Open winners are not uncommon – both Woods (2005-06) and Padraig Harington (2007-08) achieved the feat, so Francesco Molinari is another name to ponder. Form is also important as last year’s Italian winner proved, so Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson may also enter calculations to lift the Claret Jug in 2019.

Who has won most Open Championship golf titles?


Harry Vardon won the Open Championship on six occasions (1896, 1898, 1899, 1903, 1911, 1914), while of the current players, Tiger Woods has won the title three times, the last in 2006. Rory McIlroy became the seventh wire-to-wire winner of The Open Championship in 2014, while 50% of the winners on links courses in the last five years have led the field after round three.
