British Open 2014 TV coverage on ESPN includes all four rounds live from Royal Liverpool (Hoylake) in northwest England July 17-20.
Golf’s third major of the year, the Open Championship — still the “British Open” to some of us in the Colonies — tees off July 17 at Royal Liverpool (Hoylake) in northwest England. Adam Scott, Henrik Stenson, Matt Kuchar, Bubba Watson and Rory McIlroy are the top contenders to capture the Claret Jug. Phil Mickelson had the round of his life at the 2013 Open, making birdie on four of his final six holes to win his fifth career major.
Present or absent, Tiger Woods still grabs the headlines at any major, and ESPN3 is offering a live feed of every round he plays at the tournament. Woods, who underwent back surgery to repair a pinched nerve in March and did not play in The Masters or the U.S. Open, will play in his first major of the year at the Open Championship. He hasn’t won a major since June 2008, and needs five more victories to surpass Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 career majors. When healthy, Woods is still a dominant player, and given the number of opportunities remaining in his career, it’s likely he’ll overtake Nicklaus at some point. Woods will at least be familiar with the course: He won the Open at Royal Liverpool in 2006.
