For the first time in 68 years, the Open Championship will take place outside of the British mainland this year.
Northern Ireland's Royal Portrush Golf Club and its acclaimed Dunluce Links will stage the 148th edition of golf's oldest professional tournament from July 18-21.
It will be only the second time the fight for the Claret Jug will have been waged there and the first since 1951, when England's Max Faulkner claimed the spoils.
The man to beat this time around is Italy's Francesco Molinari, following his maiden major victory at Carnoustie in 2018.
Here's a look at how this year's field is shaping up.
