Here we take a look at the Sky and BBC TV and radio coverage of this year's Open Championship from Carnoustie

Open Championship TV Coverage 2018

The Open takes place at Carnoustie this year for the eighth time as Jordan Spieth defends the Claret Jug he won in such dramatic fashion last year.

The world’s best professionals and amateurs will tee it up on the famed ‘Carnasty’ and it is set to be a thrilling week after what was a controversial US Open, marred by brutal course conditions and a silly moment from Phil Mickelson.

Tiger Woods will be back at Carnoustie for his first Open since 2015. The 14-time major winner’s return to the PGA Tour in 2018 has been one of the stories of the year.

Woods has managed five top-12s and missed just two cuts in his 11 tournaments so far this year.
