Facts and figures for the British Open golf championship

Golf Stenson has lofty ambitions for Open defense

The links-style golf course is a familiar stop on the Open circuit, and has produced world-class winners while testing the patience of some of the best golfers to ever pick up a club.

"I wouldn't get your hopes up", Spieth replied. "I would love to see him tee it up here again", R&A chief executive Martin Slumbers said at Birkdale yesterday ahead of the start of this year's Open.

Tommy Fleetwood has looked like a different player to the one of 12 months ago. The hardest thing is being able to take your own advice sometimes. The No. 3 ranked golfer in the world had a disappointing U.S. Open, but he will enter this week coming off a victory (in thrilling fashion) at the Travelers Championship in late June.

Reason: The world's No. 1 is the favorite to capture his second major tournament, even though he hasn't played in a month and, when he last did, he missed the cut in both events - the Memorial and the U.S. Open.

In addition to protecting the fans in and around the grandstands, the rule will protect players walking up the 10th fairway and directly into the alternate landing zone for No. 9.

"The way I won at Carnoustie, I don't think as a 15-year-old you're going to dream of double-bogeying the last with a one-shot lead as your dream way of winning the Open".

The eye-catching Spaniard's rise to the top of the world game has been staggering. That was his second victory on the season, having also captured the clambake at Pebble Beach. But the 2014 British Open victor has struggled since, missing the cut at three of five events, including a brutal plus-5 performance at the U.S. Open as a +1200 bet.

Spieth was quick to dismiss any talk of a Big Four, pointing out the depth of talent now playing around the world.

"I've played in the wind since I was a kid basically playing Peninsula district pennant down at Portsea and we actually played Sorrento recently to find some wind as well", Hall said.

"It really could be anybody at this point", he said of who he'd put in a group of the best. And I think some people overlook that. "It's just a matter of putting it all together". And you want to emulate that and you want to do it again and again and again.

"And my advice is to be as patient as possible and just keep ticking the boxes, and hopefully the work and the workload pays off in the long run". Athletes are going to golf. "Everything he does is pretty much spot on; the way he handles himself, the grace in which he plays the sport I think is incredible". The 23-year-old, two-time Major victor has the temperament, ball-striking ability and course management skills to win at a place like Royal Birkdale.

"Liverpool was the one that was the most shocking without the grandstand surrounding the 18th (the 16th green during normal play)".
