The infographic contains a range of interesting facts and figures about the history of the tournament, which is the oldest of the four major championships and the only one to be held outside the United States. This year's Open Championship will be held at Muirfield, East Lothian, which last played host to the event in 2002.
"We've been looking forward to this year's Open Challenge with particular relish - it really is hard to say just who'll come out on top," said John Woosey, Managing Director at Golf Care. "With this new infographic, we hoped to provide a useful and concise overview of this fascinating tournament's history. Here's hoping that the 2013 Open Championship will be another one to remember, after the thrills and spills of last year's event."
As noted in the infographic, Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood are generally expected to be among the leading contenders for the Open Championship this year. However, Woods hasn't won a major title since 2008, McIlroy has endured a particularly difficult 2013 so far and Westwood is yet to secure his first major championship.
Last year, South Africa's veteran star Ernie Els surprised many fans to win his fourth major championship - his first for ten years - at Royal Lytham & St Annes. Australia's Adam Scott had held a four-shot lead in the final round after birdieing the 14th hole, but subsequently bogeyed the final four holes. Els held his nerve, and Scott missed out on a playoff by just a single stroke.
