Clear your diaries – the 150th Open Championship is almost here.

This year’s historic playing of golf’s original major is set to be the biggest ever, with celebrations to mark the iconic tournament’s landmark year.

It’s the most in-demand ever, too. Around 290,000 people are expected to descend on St Andrews.

But if you were one of the unlucky ones to miss out in the ballot for briefs to the Old Course, fear not – there is extensive TV coverage for you to enjoy throughout the week.

As usual, the Open will be televised on Sky Sports, which is renaming its dedicated golf station Sky Sports The Open for the week of the tournament.

Coverage will be fronted by Nick Dougherty, with analysts such as Paul McGinley and Wayne Riley.

In addition, there will be plenty of footage from past championships to enjoy throughout the week.
