The oldest of the four major championships in professional golf is back for the 147th edition of The Open Championship .

Played in the United Kingdom as the only major not in the U.S., the British Open is being held at Carnoustie Golf Links in Scotland in 2018. Carnoustie features a par-71 course that’s known for thick rough and tough bunkers. The last time the Open was played at Carnoustie, Irishman Padraig Harrington took home the Claret Jug in 2007.
