The 150th Open Championship begins this morning at St Andrews' Old Course.

It is a historic landmark for the world's oldest golf major and one which sees Rory McIlroy installed at the top of the betting market while Tiger Woods returns to his "favourite course in the world".

Amid a backdrop of squabbling between the PGA and DP World Tours and the rebel LIV Invitational Series, come the first tee off then the focus will, hopefully, be on who will be lifting the Claret Jug.

Here’s all you need to know...

When is the 2022 Open Championship?
