How to watch the Open golf live stream

Want to spend your Sunday watching the world's best golfers competing for the 2018 Open Championship at Carnoustie? Well there are several different sites and services on which you can do so and on this page we're going to explain your best options.

The Open is the oldest golf major and, in its 147th edition, has the very best players in the world going after that famous Claret Jug. Last year's winner Jordan Spieth goes into the final round as the favourite once again, sharing the lead with fellow Americans Keven Kisner and Xander Schauffele.

Probably the biggest story of the 2018 Open is the return to form of legendary player Tiger Woods. He's a few shots behind, but had a storming third round. Could he pull it out of the bag? Of the British interest, there's Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and Tommy Fleetwood hoping to have success at Scotland's historic Carnoustie course.

Right now it really is too close to call - we're expecting a very exciting final round of the 2018 Open Championship. If you want to tune in to the coverage, here's how:
