British Open 2018 Final was first played on 17 October 1860 at Prestwick Golf Club in Scotland. The British Open 2018 inaugural tournament was restricted to professionals and attracted a field of eight golfers who played three rounds of Prestwick’s twelve-hole course in a single day. Willie Park Sr. won with a score of 174, beating Old Tom Morris, by two strokes. The following year the tournament was opened to amateurs; eight of them joined ten professionals in the field.

The Open is a 72-hole stroke play tournament contested over four days, Thursday through Sunday. Since 1979 it has been played in the week which includes the 3rd Friday in July. Currently, 156 players are in the field, mostly made up of the world’s leading professionals, who are given exemptions, along with winners of the top amateur championships. Further places are given to players, amateurs and professionals, who are successful in a number of qualifying events. There is a cut after 36 holes after which only the leading 70 players (and ties) play in the final 36 holes on the weekend. In the event of a tie after 72 holes, a four-hole aggregate playoff is held; if two or more players are still tied, it continues as sudden-death until there is a winner.

British Open 2018 Live , the tournament is best known by its official title, The Open Championship, or simply the Open. Outside of the United Kingdom, the tournament is often referred to as the British Open to disambiguate the tournament from other national open golf tournaments, such as the U.S. Open. Likewise, the Masters and PGA Championship are often referred to as the U.S. Masters and U.S. PGA Championship outside of the United States, the latter being distinguished in the UK from the European Tour’s BMW PGA Championship. In recent years, the R&A has worked to discourage media outlets from referring to the event as the British Open; for instance, the tournament’s current television deal with U.S. network NBC contractually forbids the broadcaster from doing so. NBC presenter Johnny Miller admitted that during their first year as broadcaster, he sometimes had to correct himself on-air after accidentally referring to the event as the British Open. The Open’s women’s counterpart, however, is officially titled the Women’s British Open.

Some U.S. critics have argued that the insistence of referring to the British Open Golf 2018 Live tournament as The Open expresses an opinion of exceptionalism for the event by the R&A in comparison to other open golf tournaments, albeit one that is justified due to its history. Alastair Johnston of IMG, who markets the tournament and its media rights internationally, remarked that negotiations in some regions had been complicated by local executives who did not believe it was appropriate to refer to the event as simply The Open Championship.
