The final round of the final men’s major of 2022 is here, and it promises to be a spectacular one. Rory McIlroy and Viktor Hovland are tied for the lead at the British Open, both standing at -16 as Sunday begins at St. Andrews. Four strokes behind them are Cam Smith and Cameron Young, the leaders on Saturday who suffered through similar struggles as the rest of the field was surging. Si Woo Kim, Scottie Scheffler and Dustin Johnson are lurking, but no one else is within six strokes of the leaders.
McIlroy is aiming to break an eight-year major drought, and a victory this week at St. Andrews would be one of the most popular in recent golf history. Hovland, one of the game’s best young stars, would ascend to the next level with his first major, but the crowd in Scotland is firmly behind McIlroy. The challenge, and the opportunity, of a lifetime awaits.
