Golf fans are excited to see another major competition kick start this summer. This time it’s the 149th edition of the British Open Championship.

Shane Lowry is the defending British Open champion. The Irishman lifted the Claret Jug in 2019 at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland.

Since the 2020 competition was scrapped off due to the coronavirus pandemic, he has been the trophy keeper for the last two years.

A staggering 156 Players will take the field, but a few notables names will remain on the sidelines. Si WOOOO Kim and Sungjae Im had previously announced that they won’t participate in the Open. The duo cited preparations for the Olympics that will commence in a few weeks.

Golf legend Tiger Woods is still working on his injury rehab. He had fractured the tibia and fibula bones in his right leg after meeting a horrible car crash this February.

He was immediately operated on at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. After being treated at various facilities, later on, he was brought back to his residence in South Florida to continue his rehab.

Kevin Na will too remain absent. His exit has allowed Martin Kaymer to enter the competition.

Another blow came to the tournament in the form of Bubba Watson. The experienced campaigner said Sunday morning that he will take a pass on the British Open since someone close to him has contracted COVID-19.

When and Where is the 2021 British Open?

The British Open will kick off on July 11 (Sunday) and conclude on July 18 (Sunday).

The Royal St George’s Golf Club will host the star-studded British Open in July. The club is situated in England’s Sandwich.

“It’s just one of those golf courses where, if you get aggressive with it, you can end up looking very silly,” Rory McIlroy has said about the golf course.

Paul Larsen, the course manager at Royal St George’s, has affirmed that the management intentionally made the fairways a tad wider.

“The fairways are slightly wider and we’ve tried to make it so if you hit the fairway, you should hang into the semi-rough worst case, not into thick rough,” Larsen remarked.

How can I live stream the British Open Golf 2021?

There’s absolutely no excuse for the gold fans to not catch the live streaming of the British Open as NBC’s free Peacock streaming service and the Golf Channel will show uninterrupted coverage of the event.
