Here is yet another sign of the BBC’s lack of grip of sport, as now the live coverage of The Open belongs to Sky.

The BBC now only have the highlights as the four day event begins. Last year, Jordan Spieth won in a play-off against Sergio Garcia to take home the claret jug. In this year’s contest in Carnoustie, former champions Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy are back, as well as Padraig Harrington who won the last Open to held at this course back in 2007.

The Open is on Sky Main Event and Sky The Open at 06.30. Highlights are on BBC Two at 20.00.
