The 150th Open Championship is here, and with it in Scotland, it’s important to know how to watch it.
As the fourth and final major championship is here, how to watch the 150th Open Championship is the most important part of the viewing experience.
Golf returns to the home of golf for the first time since 2015, when Zach Johnson beat out Marc Leishman and Louis Oosthuizen in a playoff to hoist the Claret Jug.
