The world's best golfers have gathered at Royal Troon in Scotland for the third major championship of the year - The British Open.

This links course, built in 1888, is located on the rugged coastline in Western Scotland. Small greens, lots of pot bunkers and wind are all factors that will challenge golfers.

NOTE: Live updates on the British Open begin at 6:15am Thursday during the Morning Pitch Show on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket.
