The 2023 Open Championship took place in Hoylake, England, at the Royal Liverpool Golf Club this weekend, with Brian Harman being named Champion Golfer of the Year. and this year's Open Championship prize money is at an all-time high.
The tournament was ultimately a bit of a disappointment. Harman built up a big lead on his second round and never really flinched. Even after an early bogey on the second hole, Harman recovered and steadied himself. The abject conditions meant that none of the big hitters like Jon Rahm or Tommy Fleetwood could stage a comeback.
Rory McIlroy started hot but couldn't get his putter to stay hot. In the end he finished in a tie for 5th.
