PGA DFS Coverage for The Open Championship 

We have officially reached the final major championship of the 2023 PGA Tour season. It’s always a happy and sad time of the year. I love all the majors but it also means it’s the last one we will see until April of 2024. The best golfers in the world head to Wirral, England for the 151th playing of the Open Championship at Royal Liverpool. Rory McIlory comes into this tournament after winning last week in Scotland and having won the last Open Championship play at Royal Liverpool in 2014. He will try once again to win his first major since the 2014 PGA Championship. It’s hard to think he’s not the favorite but he’s got a ton of great players to compete with this weekend.


The Field: The Open Championship

The biggest names in the world of golf will be participating in this event. We will see 49 of the Top 50 players in the official world rankings tee it up this weekend in England. The one player not participating is Will Zalatoris and he’s been out all season with a back injury. We will see world number one Scottie Scheffler go for his 8th straight Top 5 finish which includes last weekend in Scotland. We haven’t seen Jon Rahm play golf since he missed the cut at the Travelers a month ago. You will see players like Patrick Cantlay, Viktor Hovland, Xander Schauffele, Max Homa, Tyrrell Hatton, Tony Finau, Sam Burns, Cameron Young, Tommy Fleetwood and Rickie Fowler all attempt to win their first major championship. It’ll be a fun weekend in England. 

The Course: Royal Liverpool

Royal Liverpool Golf Club is known by most as Hoylake and is revered for the indelible mark it has left on this sport. It sits on the scenic Wirral Peninsula, the course offers a classic links-style layout that poses a stern test for golfers. Its undulating fairways, strategically placed bunkers, and thick rough demand accuracy, shot-making skill, and strategic thinking. The ever-changing winds off the nearby coast further add to the challenge. This will be the 13th time that this course has hosted the Open Championship. We have seen golf legends triumph here and it continues to be a favorite among players and fans for its beauty, tradition, and demanding nature.

Weather: Wirral, England

It will be a wet weekend in England for the Open Championship. Thursday and Friday will have some light rain in the morning but as the weekend rolls around, we will see more consistent rainfall on Saturday and Sunday. The winds will be pretty standard for England but nothing these players haven’t played through before. The temperatures should be in the mid to low 60s throughout the week.
