Monday at The Open Championship

There have been plenty of great moments already captured on social media this week, and we expect many more from players and fans before the first official rounds on Thursday. Here are some of our favorites so far.

Zach Johnson returns the Claret Jug

We like his chances to defend as both Arnold Palmer and Bobby Locke successfully defended their Open Championships at Royal Troon.

Americans loving the Open

Americans have won the past 6 Open Championships at Royal Troon. Billy Ho and Sneds are happy to be there as well as "Big Gravy" Colt Knost who is replacing the injured Brooks Koepka.

Greatest walk in golf

Yup, we got chills.

Here's how the walk up 18 will look without galleries.

Bunker down

Monty to lead things off

Knowing you've arrived...

Its not quite the Claret Jug or The Challenge Belt, but it's the first sign that you made it. Congrats, Luke.

But your clubs on the other hand...

Britain's very own James Heath needs his sticks. Help him out.
