British Open 2021 live updates: Louis Oosthuizen threatening major scoring record with dazzling Friday finish

There’s a ton to unpack after Day 1 at Royal St. George’s. Drama over driver design and Bryson’s (and his manufacturers’) comments distracted from the first Open Championship round in two years. Louis Oosthuizen leads at a major yet again, and Jordan Spieth put on a vintage performance in the morning wave, where players took advantage of some less-difficult conditions.

British Open 2021: This is it, this is the worst putt in golf history

You probably arrived at this post thinking our patented "This is it" headline (Copyright Christopher Powers) is a bit hyperbolic. Well, you'd be wrong. Because this actually is it. This is the worst putt in golf history. For real. Apologies to Will Zalatoris for sharing this yip clip gone viral...

2021 Open Championship: Phil Mickelson in Last Place After 80

Phil Mickelson has already claimed a major title this season, winning the PGA Championship. But after an awful round to start the 2021 Open Championship, he won’t be adding another one this week. Mickelson, who won the Claret Jug in 2013, struggled from almost the very start on Thursday. And...

‘Just never saw that coming:’ Phil Mickelson logs regrettable first at Open Championship

Phil Mickelson, on the par-4 1st at Royal St. George’s, hit his drive down the left side of the fairway, looped in a short iron to about 12 feet and just missed the birdie putt to the right of the hole. He’d settle for a par during Thursday’s first round of the Open Championship. On his way to his tap-in, this year’s PGA Championship winner and a six-time major champion overall, would smirk at his miss.

British Open 2021 predictions, Open Championship odds: Bryson DeChambeau, Jon Rahm picks from PGA insider

The 2021 Open Championship will begin on Thursday, with Royal St. George's Golf Club hosting the oldest major in golf for a 15th time. In typical British Open fashion, plenty of wind could occur with the course situated on the southeast coast of England and the 2021 Open Championship forecast is calling for a steady 15 mph breeze throughout the week. That would appear to be a disadvantage for American golfers, who have won the Open Championship just four times since 2007 and are typically unaccustomed to links courses.

Seven Questions Ahead of the 2021 Open Championship

Of golf’s four majors, the Open Championship is both the oldest and the only one to sacrifice its 2020 event to the vagaries of COVID-19. Its outright cancellation might have looked like a lack of nerve in the moment—what with the Masters, PGA Championship, and U.S. Open all going off at rescheduled dates in the late summer and fall—but recent developments have made it seem more like the wisdom of the ages. This year, reigning Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama, 2015 Open victor Zach Johnson, and two-time major winner Bubba Watson have been forced to withdraw over COVID-related concerns, with more developments possible to occur before the first tee on Thursday.

The Open Championship Round 2 Best Bets: Buy Xander Schauffele and Justin Thomas to Make Moves

The 149th Open Championship at Royal St. George’s started out much easier than anticipated on Thursday morning as soft conditions made the course scoreable for the morning tee times. Several players would jump out to low rounds on the Par 70 as the early wave played the course to just 0.23 shots over par, while it played nearly a stroke and a half tougher for the afternoon tee times.

2021 British Open odds: Open Championship picks, top predictions by same model that nailed Jon Rahm's win

The first 2021 Open Championship tee times are at 1:35 a.m. ET on Thursday at Royal St. George's Golf Club. Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson were runner-ups the last time the British Open was played at Royal St. George's, and both have won a major in the last 12 months. Can Johnson overcome a run of poor play, and can Mickelson be a factor in the 2021 Open Championship field after becoming the oldest major champion in history earlier this year?

2021 The Open Championship: Dark Horses

Before I jump into this week’s tournament, I wanted to do a quick recap for the John Deere Classic. My three dark horses were Chez Reavie, Scott Stallings, and Roger Sloan. It could have been a very solid week for me as my three dark horses all made the cut, but my two high end plays, Harman and Noren both missed the cut. Reavie ended in a tie for 18th at 13-under, Stallings ended in a tie for 55th at -6, and Sloan ended in 71st at 6-over par. Sloan was playing pretty well through the first two rounds, but fell off on the weekend going a combined 9-over par. Reavie was in contention, but went even par on Sunday. Disappointing, but as dark horses it is not the worst results after already making the cut.
