Lofty ambitions for British Open defence

"Roger is the sporting athlete I look up to", added Rose.

"This one is more demanding on the ball-striking, so, for me, that's a good thing because generally I'm a good ball striker", he said.

"What he just did at the Irish Open and what he has been able to do this year, he did it two weeks ago at links golf".

Jordan Spieth: There is moderate concern about a driver that can sometimes get sideways, but on a set of greens that are smaller than they appear, I trust in Spieth's wizardry.

"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. "Coming over here was important for my career".

I recommend Spieth (+163), Jon Rahm (+205), Justin Rose (+221) and Hideki Matsuyama (+231) each for a Top 10.

"It doesn't necessarily mean the golf course suited me; it means the conditions suited me". The camaraderie over here is pretty unique and special. "There were a lot of aspects of my game that I was really, really pleased about".

A Woods no-show at an Open is no longer a matter for shock - this is the seventh Major in a row he has missed - but his absence with chronic back issues and prescription drug addiction still casts a shadow. This week he will use a slightly different strategy.

"I love links golf", said Brooks Koepka. "I just think guys are learning, guys are getting stronger, athletes are going to golf ... guys are winning younger, playing more fearless even in major championships, I just think it's so hard now". "You need to avoid your big mistakes and I don't really mind it because everybody has to go through it". The first of the par 5s comes just four holes from home and it's here where you can start to watch some real drama unfold.

Jordan Spieth (12-1): This just may be the course for a controlled shot maker like Jordan Spieth. "That's how you know it was a cool achievement". "And then after a few days of resting, you start to want to bring it back". But you can be so creative, and there's so many different shots. "I was not looking for a break, but I kind of needed one, more mentally than anything. You have to think your way around it".

Stenson cut a downbeat figure in spte of firing a final round of 68 in the Scottish Open on Sunday, the 41-year-old carding six birdies in the space of nine holes at Dundonald Links before dropping shots on the 15th and 18th.

No Canadian has won the British Open and the only one in the field this week is Adam Hadwin. "It kind of depends on the wind".

"He doesn't look relaxed he doesn't have a flow in it has when he's winning all those championships it's nearly like everything's too precise he's trying to make everything ideal", Harmon said.

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