British Open 2014 - First Round

Rory McIlroy, one of the favorites in the 2014 British Open.

One of Golf's four majors, The British Open begins today with coverage being provided by ESPN. The first round sees players teeing off with the goal of making the cut after the second round tomorrow. Last year's winner, Phil Mickelson, is going through a bit of a slump, but will be trying to turn things around in this tournament. He will have to watch out for Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott, and Henrik Stenson, the favorites to collect the trophy on Sunday.
