Summary

The 147TH Open Annual tells the story of a dramatic Championship at Carnoustie in which Italy’s Francesco Molinari played sublime golf to defeat some of the game’s biggest stars including Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose, Tiger Woods and defending champion Jordan Spieth. While former champion Woods grabbed the lead on the final day, only Molinari could cope with the fearsome, baked-out links as he won by two strokes.

The 147TH Open Annual is an essential souvenir for all golf fans. Produced by The R&A, this book is the official record of the Championship and is the 35th published in a series that started at St Andrews in 1984. Illustrated with superb photography from the golf specialists of Getty Images, the book contains commentary and analysis from leading golf writers, as well as a full statistical record of the Championship.
