Where: Royal Lytham & St Annes, Lancashire, circa 1886

Course stats: par 70,  7,086 yards, 205 bunkers

This will be the 11th Open Championship to be played at Royal Lytham. The first was played in 1926 was won by an amateur–Bobby Jones.

2011 Defending Champion: Darren Clarke

Weather: Crazy. As usual.

Winner? Tiger seems to be the favorite to win right now.  Vegas has him at 8:1 odds to win.  (Kind of hoping for a Bubba Watson killer dogleg victory repeat, though.)

TV Schedule:

All four rounds of the Open Championship will air on ESPN.

Streaming coverage is available online via watchESPN and, for the first time, via mobile apps.
