The Open Review

The 151st Open Championship was played at Royal Liverpool Golf Club in Hoylake. The tournament was won by Brian Harman, who finished at 13-under-par 275, six strokes ahead of the field.

Harman, a 36-year-old left-hander from Savannah, Georgia, started the final round with a five-stroke lead. He played the round in 1-over-par 73, but his lead was never seriously threatened. He made birdies on the 13th and 14th holes to extend his lead to seven strokes, and he cruised to victory from there.

This was Harman's first major championship victory. He has won three times on the PGA Tour, most recently in 2017.

The runner-up was Jon Rahm of Spain, who finished at 7-under-par 277. Rahm had a chance to catch Harman on the back nine, but he made bogeys on the 16th and 17th holes to fall out of contention.

Third place went to Scottie Scheffler of the United States, who finished at 6-under-par 278. Scheffler, the world No. 1 golfer, had a chance to win his second major championship of the year, but he made a bogey on the 18th hole to finish two strokes back.

The 151st Open Championship was played in wet and windy conditions. The rain made the course play long and difficult, and the wind made it difficult to control the ball. However, the conditions did not seem to bother Harman, who played a flawless round of golf on Sunday.

Harman's victory was a surprise to many, as he had not played well in recent months. However, he showed that he is still capable of winning at the highest level. This victory will give him a major boost of confidence, and it will be interesting to see how he performs in the rest of the season.

The 151st Open Championship was a memorable week of golf. The weather conditions were challenging, but the players rose to the occasion. Harman's victory was a surprise, but he played a great round of golf in the final round. It will be interesting to see how he performs in the rest of the season.
