Plan for an all-nighter of golf as the best of the best compete in Northern Ireland for the Claret Jug. Here are all the details for tee-to-green coverage on the Golf Channel including the 1:30 a.m. tee time.

<div><p>As usual, the weather may be the among hazards at the 148<sup>th</sup> Open Championship, this year being played at Royal Portrush Golf Club in Portrush, Northern Island.</p><p>So as golfers such as Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Rickie Fowler and last year’s winner, Francesco Molinari are putting an umbrella into their golf bag, you should be readying the fixings for a full Irish breakfast -- eggs, sausages and/or bacon, grilled tomatoes, mushrooms, and baked beans with a Guinness within reach.</p><p>You might also consider a nap since the first tee time is 1:35 a.m. Thursday for those vying for the Claret Jug.</p><p>And just to make it more interesting, check out our handicapping and the odds at <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/best-sportsbooks/">SBR's top rated sportsbooks</a>.</p><h2><strong>FACTS &amp; FIGURES</strong></h2><p><a href="https://www.theopen.com/">148<sup>th</sup> Open Championship</a></p><p><strong>Dates:</strong> Thursday through Sunday</p><p><strong>Where:</strong> Royal Portrush, Portrush, Northern Ireland</p><p><strong>Course length:</strong> 7,344 yards</p><p><strong>Par:</strong> 71</p><p><strong>Field:</strong> 156 players</p><p><strong>Playoff (if necessary):</strong> 3 holes, aggregate score</p><p><strong>Prize money:</strong> $10.75 million</p><p><strong>Winner’s prize money:</strong> $1.9 million</p><h2><strong>HOW TO WATCH</strong></h2><p>Over the course of this week, the <a href="https://www.golfchannel.com/">Golf Channel</a> and <a href="https://www.nbcsports.com/">NBC Sports</a> will air more than 400 hours of overall programming related to the 148<sup>th</sup> Open, the last major of the year. You also can stream the tournament at <a href="http://www.golfchannel.com/theopen">www.golfchannel.com/theopen</a> on your computer or mobile devices, so wherever you are you won’t miss a putt.</p><p>From the coverage you’re accustomed to, both NBC and the Golf Channel will add value to your viewing with in-depth research and analysis, alternate live feeds of showcase holes (par-4 fifth, par-3 sixth and par-5 seventh) and specialty coverage of coveted groups or parings.
