West Ham United are looking to make it a brace of Open wins when American PGA star Billy Horschel comes to Kent this weekend.
Massive West Ham fans Paul McGinley and Francesco Molinari have both featured in what is considered one of golf’s oldest and most prestigious majors. And Molinari did West Ham proud when he won it back in 2018.
While West Ham hero Declan Rice recovers from the heartache of losing in the Euro 2020 final, attentions turn to The Open this weekend.
Why USA golf star Horschel is a Hammer
The championship is back for the first time in two years after the Covid-induced hiatus of 2020 and returns to Kent’s Royal St George’s course after a decade away.
And West Ham fans will have another fellow Hammer to cheer on in the shape of six-time winner on the PGA Tour, Horschel.
