The British Open Championship (or just the Open Championship as it’s known outside the U.S.) tees off on Thursday July 15th. This year the Open features a return to St. Andrews and the return of Tiger Woods to the course where he won British Open titles in 2000 and 2005.

If you can’t catch all the active on TV, the updated Open Championship iPhone app has you covered.  

The app is a free download from the App store. During the tournament the App will have live video (UK), live audio, and leaderboard. Currently you can find Preview videos, news updates,  and hole by hole course description.
