Ben Crane at British Open

The 2009 British Open begins Thursday, July 16 at Turnberry's Ailsa Course, Scottland.

4U client, Ben Crane will tee off at 5:48am Eastern Daylight Savings time with Martin Laird and Robert Rock.

TV coverage will be Thursday and Friday from 7am - 7pm eastern time on TNT, Saturday from 9am - 2:30 pm eastern time on ABC, and Sunday from 8am - 1:30pm eastern time on ABC.

An American has won The Open 10 of the past 14 years. Turnberry is sort-of like Scottland's version of Pebble Beach. 1994 was the last time a Championship was hosted at this great course, at which time Nick Price won the Claret Jug. Price won in 1994, Greg Norman in 1986 and Tom Watson in 1977 in a duel with Jack Nicklaus.
