The Open Championship Brings Back Style And Excitement

The Open Championship is coming up this week with the worlds top golfers playing in one of the most historic tournaments in the world.

Golfer Justin Thomas will be playing in style during the Open Championship this week.

The wardrobe?

A cardigan and a tie. Or as many golf historians know, what everyone used to wear.

Thomas’s wardrobe is very different from the rest of the field. The usual golf polo and golf pants are being rotated out with a throw back feel. Thomas’s outfit will remind the golf community with the old style.

This year’s Open Championship is being played at Royal Birkdale Golf Club in Southport, England.  Online betting sites have Thomas at +5000 to win the Open Championship with Dustin Johnson leading all golfers with a +1400 line.

Thomas isn’t the only golfer who will be styling out at the Open. Jordan Speith has smart tech clothing by Under Armour.

Spieth calls the Open Championship the easiest major to win, just because of the smaller field.

“I’ve kind of seen a bit of everything in four years’ time,” said Spieth. “To say that it may be the easiest of the majors to win, if you had to pick a major, just because the draw can take out half a field.

“But the type of golf you have to play is totally different than what we see in the other three majors.

“So I’m not saying it’s easy based on competition or anything like that, I’m strictly saying that because a lot of the time some of the field is thrown out and you’re actually playing against a smaller field, your percentage chances go up.”

The favorite to win it all pays homage. Dustin Johnson’s outfits pay respect to the Championships history as well as the gray skys that are often overhead throughout the entire tournament.

The Open Championship tees off Thursday. Below is the tv viewing schedule and the tee times for Thursday and Friday’s pairings.

Dustin Johnson Leads After Round 1 At Dell Technologies Championship

After round 1 at the Dell Technologies Championship at TPC Boston in Norton, Dustin Johnson leads the pack.

But the leaderboard at the top is looking quite tight after round one.

First-Round Leaderboard

Dustin Johnson             66 (-5)

Kyle Stanley                 67 (-4)

Marc Leishman             67 (-4)

Sergio Garcia               67 (-4)

Jon Rahm                     67 (-4)

Four golfers are tied for second place at 4 under par sitting one shot back of Johnson’s 5 under par lead.

Johnson birdied the 10th hole at TPC Boston to get his opening round underway and converted a putt of less than five feet for eagle at No. 18 to make the turn 4-under. His inward nine of 1-under contributed to a 5-under 66.

In his eighth appearance at the Dell Technologies Championship, Johnson’s 66 marked his lowest opening round at TPC Boston. Johnson’s best result in the Dell Technologies Championship is T4 (twice, 2009, 2012). He finished T8 at TPC Boston last year.

Defending Dell Technologies Bank Championship winner Rory McIlroy birdied the par-5 final hole for a 1-over 72.

Round 2 kicks off on Saturday with the same pairings as round 1.

Dell Technologies Championship Preview

Dell Technologies Championship Preview: TV Information, Field, And More

The FedExCup returns to TPC Boston this weekend, but this time something is different.

No longer is the championship sponsored by Deutsche Bank, instead, it has been rebranded as the Dell Technologies Championship. The reigning champion of the tournament, Rory McIlroy will be present for the Labor Day weekend tournament and enters it ranked No. 43 in the FedExCup after beginning the FedExCup Playoffs at No. 44.

McIlroy had an impressive comeback at last years event after being tied for 67th overall after an opening round 71. But he posted a final round 65 as he was able to close and eclipse a 6 stroke lead Paul Casey had entering the final round in 2016. That six stroke come-from behind win happens to be the largest in the tournament’s history.

But this year looks to be different at the  Dell Technologies Championship. For starters, McIlroy won the FedExCup in 2016 and looks to be nowhere close to being able to do that this time around. The favorites heading into this weekend are the top 6 in the FedExCup standings.

  1. Dustin Johnson
  2. Jordan Spieth
  3. Justin Thomas
  4. Hideki Matsuyama
  5. John Rahm
  6. Rickie Fowler
