Next Episode of Golf: The Open is
Daily highlights of The Open Championship, the oldest of the four Major Championships in professional golf.
Highlights of the opening round of the 148th Open Championship from Royal Portrush, the first time a Northern Irish course has hosted the event since 1951, some 68 years ago.
Rory McIlroy starts the event as one of the favourites. The 30-year-old's local knowledge could prove invaluable as he begins his quest for a second Claret Jug having first lifted the famous trophy in 2014.
Situated on Antrim's north coast, the venue has a fearsome reputation as one of the toughest links courses in the world. Indeed, when Royal Portrush last hosted the event in 1951 only two players finished under par.
Second round Open Championship highlights from Royal Portrush, which is the first Northern Irish course to host the event since 1951, when it was won by Max Faulkner.
2015 winner Zach Johnson shot an impressive 67 in wet conditions in the second round last year at Carnoustie, good enough to see him share the halfway lead with American compatriot Kevin Kisner, who double-bogeyed the last to deny him the outright lead. Tommy Fleetwood and Rory McIlroy led the British charge and were one and two shots respectively off the six under mark of Johnson and Kisner. Eventual winners Francesco Molinari ended the second round in joint 29th place at level par.
Justin Thomas and Sergio Garcia were among the more notable names to miss the cut.
Eilidh Barbour introduces the best action from Royal Portrush as the world's elite golfers attempt to master the notoriously tough links course on County Antrim's north coast.
Northern Ireland's four-time Major winner Rory McIlroy began the 148th Open Championship as one of the tournament favourites, having set a course record of 61 at Royal Portrush when he was only 16.
However, American golfers have won nine of the past ten Major championships, with the exception being Francesco Molinari's historic triumph at The Open in Carnoustie last year.
The winner of golf's oldest major and one of world sport's iconic trophies, the Claret Jug, is decided at the fearsome Royal Portrush Dunluce Links in Northern Ireland.
The north coast course is so taxing that only two players finished under par when The Open was last held there, in 1951. Who will rise to the challenge, as Italian Francesco Molinari did at Carnoustie last year when he defied blustery conditions and pressure from Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Justin Rose to secure his maiden Major title with a clinical bogey-free final round?
