The 147th Open at Carnoustie: Looking back and looking ahead

Once again, The Open delivered a compelling final round befitting golf’s oldest championship.

The 42-year-old Tiger Woods seized the lead – and the golf world’s attention – early in the back nine, adding fuel to an improbable comeback. Jordan Spieth fought valiantly to defend his title. Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy thrilled the locals with spirited charges on the closing holes. In all, at least a half-dozen golfers battled atop the leaderboard as the holes dwindled and the sun began to dip over historic Carnoustie, which bared its teeth via strong breezes and hole locations tucked in corners.

Video #7 / Prestwick Golf Club, Scotland

Prestwick is Scottish golf royalty. It was founded in 1851 and lies adjacent to Royal Troon along a stretch of Ayrshire coastline as famous as any in the world for prime golfing terrain.  It was here in 1860 where the first Open Championship was played and won by Willie Park from Musselburgh with a score of 174 for 36 holes, 2 shots clear of Tom Morris.  Prestwick would go on to host 24 Open Championships plus 11 Amateur Championships, the most recent in 2001.
