The seventh major championship in less than a year tees off Thursday, July 15, when the world’s top players take on Royal St. George’s in the 2021 Open Championship. The British Open was canceled last year, so Shane Lowry comes in as the defending champion after winning by six strokes at Royal Portrush in 2019. The players will face blind shots, unlucky bounces and brutal rough at Royal St. George’s, and deep bunkers will penalize longer hitters. Darren Clarke fulfilled his childhood dream of winning a British Open title in 2011, the last time the event was played on the course in Sandwich, England. Ben Curtis was also an unexpected British Open winner at Royal St. George’s in 2003.
