The 2017 Open Championship was a men's major golf championship and the 146th Open Championship, held from 20–23 July at Royal Birkdale Golf Club in Southport, England. It was the tenth Open Championship at Royal Birkdale, which held its first in 1954.[3]

Jordan Spieth shot four rounds under 70 for a score of 268, three strokes ahead of runner-up Matt Kuchar. It was Spieth's second wire-to-wire win at a major, following his 2015 Masters win. In the third round, Branden Grace scored 62, which set a new major championship record.[4]

This was the first year that the prize money was paid in U.S. dollars rather than British pounds.[5]

Media

This was the second Open Championship televised domestically by Sky Sports.[6] In the United States, it is the second Open Championship to be televised by NBC (Golf Channel's parent network).[7]
