In celebration of this historic event, Golf Australia magazine has produced a special 41-page preview of the game’s greatest major championship showcasing the course, the players and famous town surrounding it.

We examine some of the key storylines that will play out during the tournament including the chances of an Australian player hoisting the Claret Jug for the first time in 29 years.


Mike Clayton looks at the brilliance of The Old Course, we look back at when Kel Nagle took down ‘The King’, plus so much more, including the honour roll of every Aussie to tee it up in golf’s greatest championship.

Outside The Open, we look at Scottie Scheffler’s swing frame-by-frame, Adrian Logue takes in Seve, The Movie, Brendan James travels to Royal Hobart and Kew, Jimmy Emanuel visits Titleist’s Massachusetts Ball Plant 3 and we reveal the best wedges in the game.

And if you’re thinking about a ‘Tee Change’, our special on course-side living has you covered.
