The British Open, the third of golf’s major tournaments, has started play today at the Royal St. George’s course in England. This is the first time the tournament has been held at this venue since 2003.
Tiger Woods is not participating because of injury and most expect foreign golfers to continue their domination of the PGA’s major events. Phil Mickelson is the last American to win a major, the 2010 Masters.
Two former Gator golfers are in the field as Mark Calcavecchia has an early tee time and Camilo Villegas will tee off later today.
ESPN has live coverage of the tournament.
