The 148TH Open Annual is an essential souvenir for all golf fans, telling the story of another dramatic Championship, with complete statistical records and gripping day by day reportage.

With the competition's historic return to Northern Ireland for the first time since 1951, the only other occasion when the spectacular Royal Portrush Golf Club on the Antrim coast had hosted The Open, the 2019 tournament was a classic, with a wide and competitive field slimming down into a nailbiting two-horse race.

​2018 Champion Golfer Francesco Molinari was joined by local hero Rory McIlroy and the Republic of Ireland's Shane Lowry as well as Tiger Woods, Brooks Koepka, Justin Rose and the biggest names in golf to attempting to hoist the Claret Jug.

Produced by The R&A, this book is the official record of the Championship and is the 36th published in a series that started at St Andrews in 1984. Illustrated with superb photography from the golf specialists of Getty Images, the book contains commentary and analysis from leading golf writers, as well as a full statistical record of the Championship.

Contributors include some of the most respected writers on the game of golf. Andy Farrell recounts all the action in his daily reports, while features and analysis is provided by Philip Reid, John Hopkins, Lewine Mair, Alistair Tait and Art Spander.

The stunning photography featured in this book is provided by the team from Getty Images, led by Andrew Redington and David Cannon, and including more of the game’s most prominent photographers whose work is published and admired worldwide.
