Introduction

Welcome to the list of the most promising and talented golfers from around the world that are gathering to compete in the prestigious 2023 Open Championship. This year’s competition promises a unique blend of seasoned champions, rising stars, and promising newcomers, all set to create a memorable golfing spectacle. Let’s delve into the spectacular field that is set to grace the greens in 2023.

The 151st Open Championship at Royal Liverpool Golf Club

The major season has flown by and we are about to reach The 151st Open Championship at Royal Liverpool Golf Club.

Cameron Smith will be looking to defend the Claret Jug he impressively won and grabbed from the hands of Rory McIlroy at St Andrews in 2022.

McIlroy’s sole victory at The Open came at Hoylake in 2014, and he, Scottie Scheffler, and Jon Rahm will enter the week as the big three to beat again.

A series of stars from the PGA Tour, the DP World Tour, and LIV Golf, as well as Open champions from previous years, will head to the famous links.

A large field will line up on Merseyside, having qualified through a number of different routes throughout the season.

Royal Liverpool will host The Open for the 13th time and has seen a number of great champions such as McIlroy, Tiger Woods in 2006, and Roberto De Vicenzo in 1967.

But who will lift the Claret Jug this summer? Here is the field for The Open Championship in 2023:
