Who will join Tiger Woods, Brooks Koepka and Gary Woodland as the fourth major champion of 2019? We deliver a bumper preview to the 148th Open Championship, including an exclusive chat with the 'Postman' Ian Poulter and a look at the Open's historic return to Northern Ireland. We get sidetracked on the way to Royal Portrush by the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open at Lahinch G.C., learn how a new course guide app was dreamed into life on an Abu Dhabi oil rig and talk to the European Tour's new Middle East chief, Tom Phillips.
We also look at Phil Mickelson's timeless swing and focus elsewhere on short game improvement including some nifty footwork from Dubai Creek's Jack Woods that will help you but crisp chips more consistently. All this and now in the July 2019 issue if Golf Digest Middle East.
