  • True vision of an outstanding championship Jul 16, 2019

    By JJenkins47
    I’m very impressed with this incredibly simple but rich app. The graphics are clear and sharp. The navigation is easy. The information, overall, is concise and obviously not written by some marketing-hacker. The crowing feature of the app is the well-designed Course Guide which (at least prior to the start of the Championship) provides a beautiful interface for browsing the details of every hole on the Dunluce Links. I can’t wait to see it in action once the event begins in earnest! Great job! This is by far the best dedicated Major event app.

  • Love the favorites toggle Jul 18, 2019

    By Loupus Maximus
    I prefer the ability to toggle my favorites on the leaderboard; as opposed to always having them shown at the top of the leaderboard. The PGA Tour app shows favorites at the top and it just gets in the way later into tournaments.

    Finally video. Can't watch in real full screen,size doesn't match and tablet doesn't change at all. The whole thing should have been working in the beginning but you are getting there. To little too late.

    Would be five stars if not for two things. Firstly the radio doesn't work it just loads constantly. Secondly it would be nice to have the option to switch to metric measurements.

    This is not the most well put together app. It doesn’t say who the featured groups are, and when you go to “media” the full live coverage isn’t even an option. To watch that you have to go to the website or through the golf channel app. The US open app also allowed you to track shot by shot tracking of any player you chose, this one does not.

    This app is garbage. I cannot watch any of the video. Everytime I attempt it I get an error. I would give zero stars if that were an option. Sad that an app for a major championship works so poorly. Never had this trouble with the Masters, US Open, or the PGA apps.

    ITS 2018 AND I CANT CHECK WHERE MY FAVORITE PLAYER IS LYING ON THE COURSE. The TV coverage is all day which is phenomenal but you don’t seem to realize they only show the same 30 golfers. So my favorite golfer can be in the top 20 and no FaceTime because of his sponsorships. So you could upgrade your app from 2005 and show players locations on the course and position. That way I can track my guy who’s only a few strokes behind the leader on Sunday. I’m tired of watching the guys in the Top 20 World rankings play for making the cut.

    Not able to listen to the radio broadcast with my phone's screen off. It has to be on while listening which runs the battery down. Seems like an easy fix if they were interested. I emailed the developer and am waiting for a response. Not holding my breath.

  • OK but needs shot tracking Jul 22, 2019

    By dj33256
    Would be good to see all my follows at the top of the leaderboard and be able to sort by the best rounds of the day. But most importantly, it needs shot tracking. I can track every shot on mediocre PGA events, I should be able to track shots in one of the top-3 biggest golf tournaments of the year.

  1. Download the official app of The Open with real-time updates of scores, highlights, course guide, and radio stream
  2. Follow your favorite players and get informed on their performance by using the Featured Group on becoming the Golfer of the Year
  3. Intuitive leaderboard makes it easy to follow along with the Championship with a great timeline of news and social media posts

  • Radio keeps disconnecting Jul 18, 2019

    By palmdiggity
    App is okay, but the live radio broadcast keeps dropping every 5 minutes or so. Have to restart the app and push play again, annoying.

  • Clunky, limited functionality Jul 19, 2019

    By bmb912
    It is kind of amazing how much more advanced the US Open and masters apps than the British open app. No way to see shot by shot review, no highlights by player, even the use of favorites is much more awkward than other apps. Even little things are inaccurate (displayed refresh time is actually one hour behind EDT)

  • Lame Jul 20, 2019

    By tj1731
    I don’t understand anyone giving this a high rating. It works but that’s it. It offers a page for tee times but then doesn’t give the tee times. Just group numbers and who’s in the group. Useless. And somehow it just disappeared off my phone. By itself. The other majors had great apps. Why bother if you’re not going to do it right.

    Terrible. I used this app consistently last year to keep updated and watch live. Continually get the same error message when I try to watch live. Please fix!
