The British Royal Golf Association (R&A), which organizes the tournament, has set this year’s prize money as the largest ever in The Open history. The total prize money is 16.5 million dollars (21.1 billion won), an increase of 2.5 million dollars from last year, and the winning prize is 3 million dollars (3.8 billion won), an increase of 500,000 dollars.

The Open, the last major tournament of this season, will be held at Royal Liverpool (par 71) in Hoylake, England for four days from the 20th (Korean time). This competition is also called the ‘Battle of the Links’ because it is held on alternating courses in the Links terrain each year.

According to golf course historians, Royal Liverpool is ‘the course where the best players of the year won’. In 2014, Rory McIlroy won by two strokes over Rickie Fowler and Sergio Garcia, winning his second major that year.

Prior to this, in 2006, Tiger Woods held the driver only once at the 16th hole and won by two strokes. He attacked the course with an elaborate iron shot and a stinger shot against the wind. After confirming the championship, Woods shed tears with his caddy Steve Williams on his shoulders as he walked out of the hole. This is because his father, Earl Woods, passed away two months before the tournament.

Last year, which marked the 150th anniversary, Cameron Smith (Australia), a golfer currently affiliated with LIV, competed in a group with McIlroy and won the championship with 20 under par, reducing 8 strokes on the final day. McIlroy, who lost the championship right in front of his eyes, must stake his pride as a representative player of the PGA Tour to regain the glory of the Claret Jug. In addition to McIlroy, top rankers such as Scotty Scheffler (USA) and John Rahm (Spain), who are world No.

All major Korean players will also participate. Im Seong-jae said, “I am studying various shots” ahead of the tournament. Kim Si-woo has participated in The Open four times, recording the best result last year with a tie for 15th. Kim Joo-hyung and Lee Gyeong-hun are participating in the second round after last year. Ahn Byung-hoon finished tied for 3rd at the Genesis Scottish Open and dramatically obtained the final ticket to The Open. Two players (champion Korean-American Han Seung-soo and runner-up Kang Gyeong-nam), who received the right to participate through the 65th Kolon Korea Open, will also join. Bio Kim entered the top 4 of the Asian Tour World City Championship held in Hong Kong in March and won the Open Open ticket given to 4 players.

The 151st The Open will be broadcast live for more than 40 hours on two channels, JTBC Golf and JTBC Golf & Sports. The 1st and 2nd rounds start at 2:30 pm, the 3rd round will be broadcast at 6 pm (Golf & Sports 9:30 pm), and the final round will be broadcast from 5 pm on the 23rd.
