The Greatest Finish in Golf

By: Golfshake Editor | Wed 18 Jul 2018

Ahead of The 147th Open Championship at the famed Carnoustie Golf Links, we are taking you onto the ground of the Championship Course to showcase the challenge that awaits the game's best players. Renowned for its testing closing trio of holes, which are set to define who lifts the Claret Jug on Sunday, the 16th, 17th and 18th combine to create what is perhaps the Greatest Finish in Golf.

These three holes are notoriously difficult and will require a combination of nerve and execution from the players in contention. Earlier in the year, Golfshake's Owen Davies had the chance to play this famous course and took on these three holes, delivering a bit of on-the-ground insight behind this fearsome stretch that will likely prove defining in determining the legacy of who becomes the Champion Golfer of the Year. See how our man got on!



The oldest & most prestigious major, a trip to The Open is a must for every golf fan. From tickets and transfers to hospitality & golf, Golfbreaks.com can build the perfect package to help you experience The Open in style.
