The Open will draw a record attendance of 290,000 people at St Andrews in Scotland this year, according to organisers.

The attendance will break the previous record set in 2000 when Tiger Woods won the tournament in front of 239,000 spectators.

“The news that this will be the largest Championship ever staged is a phenomenal feat and reminds us of the enduring appeal of golf,” said First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.

Organisers said they had received more than 1.3 million applications in the ticket ballot which led to the highest number of tickets being issued to fans.

When is it?

The 150th edition of The Open will take place from July 10-17 at the Old Course, St Andrews.

What time will it start?

The early starters will be due out around 6am for the first round, although confirmed tee times will be released closer to the event.

What TV channel is it on?

The 150th Open will be shown live on Sky Sports. Alternatively, bookmark this page and follow Telegraph Sport’s live coverage of all four days.

Latest news

Tiger Woods has confirmed he pulled out of the US Open in an effort to be fit for the Open at St Andrews.

He sat out the US Open at Brookline – which was won by Matt Fitzpatrick – but hopes taking a break will allow him to meet his playing commitments at both the JP McManus Pro-Am in Limerick on July 4-5 and at St Andrews, with the Open getting under way on July 10.

“I previously informed the USGA that I will not be competing in the US Open as my body needs more time to get stronger for major championship golf,” Woods posted on Twitter.

What happened last year?

Collin Morikawa held off a late surge from Jordan Spieth to win at Royal St George’s, with the imperious American finishing 15-under.

Telegraph Sport’s golf correspondent James Corrigan described Morikawa as “unbreakable, unmatchable and unbelievable” after he added the Open Championship to the US PGA title he collected in 2020.

If anyone is any doubt about the class of this Californian then consider that he only turned pro in June 2019 and this was only his eight major – and only Bobby Jones has won two quicker.

What are the latest odds?
