Golf’s third major of the 2014 season is upon us, and the world’s greatest players are across the pond for the Open Championship.
The British Open is back at one of the sport’s oldest and most famous courses, Royal Liverpool. This marks the first time the Open has been held there since 2006.
The winner of that 2006 tournament was Tiger Woods, who is making his first major appearance of the season after having back surgery. But with Woods falling all the way back to 3-over after Round 3 — good for a 58th-place tie — this year’s Open is Rory McIlroy’s to lose.
McIlroy shot a 68 on Saturday, putting him at 16-under with a six-stroke lead over second-place Rickie Fowler. Fowler, Dustin Johnson and Sergio Garcia are really the only competitors with any chance of catching McIlroy on Sunday.
McIlroy and Fowler tee off at 9:40 a.m. ET on Sunday, and Johnson and Garcia get things going right before them at 9:30 a.m. ET. Kevin Na and Bill Haas have the earliest tee time at 6:35 a.m. ET. The Open is being broadcast on ESPN.
