Yardbarker Logo By Jeff Mezydlo of Yardbarker | Slide 1 of 15: For just the second time in the history of the storied Open Championship, Royal Portrush will play host to the tournament. However, we have to go all the way back to 1951 when the club hosted the event for the first time. That year, England's Max Faulkner won his only major title. The 68-year gap between hosting will be brought up prominently this weekend, not to mention it's just the second time the tournament will be played outside of England or Scotland.
