The 151st Open Championship is quickly approaching, with the magnificent Royal Liverpool Golf Club hosting the year's last major. Cameron Smith defeated Rory McIlroy to win the Open last year, shooting a final-round 64 in St Andrews to secure a historic triumph. He'll return to Liverpool to defend the Claret Jug against another strong lineup. McIlroy, who won The Open at Hoylake in 2014, will be back in the hunt for his fifth major victory. He came extremely close to winning the U.S. Open in Los Angeles in mid-June but fell one stroke short of champion Wyndham Clark.
