    Favourite open champion?

    Who is yours?

    Mine would have to be Darren Clarke. Always been a fan of his and seems like a man you could go for a pint with.

    Tough call, was very happy for Clarke

    Seve of course as an all time favourite

    Probably Stenson recently
    Love watching that guy play and it was great being there for his shootout with Phil

    Another vote for Stenson. Seve, Faldo etc were before my time. Close call between Stenson and Mickleson but the quality of that final round and his whole demeanour just edges it.

    Tiger. His wins at St Andrews & Hoylake were clinics of how to play the game.

    Ask me my favourite masters champion.... tiger

    Seve and Ernie.

    Too young at the time to remember the 1984 Open but skipped school in 88 to watch the final round (due to the weather and course flooding the final round was held on the Monday) Seve and Nick Price battle it out round Lytham. It wasn’t as great as Stenson and Michelson obviously but the fact that Seve shot a majestic 65 to eventually see off Price shows what a great tussle it was.

    And Ernie’s renaissance in 2012 and how he just went for everything on his back 9 was very Seve-esque and piled the pressure on Scott. And the tv shot of his final putt for birdie on 18 was brilliant.

    Stenson. That final day duel against FIGJAM was amazing to behold.

    Tom Watson. I remember the Duel in the Sun at Turnberry in '77. I'd put that final round with Nichlaus and Watson at least on a par with Stenson's win against Mickleson. They finished 10 shots clear of Hubert Green after shooting 65-65(Watson), 65-66(Nichlaus) in the last two rounds.
