HOYLAKE, England — A capsule look at the previous 11 British Opens held at Royal Liverpool:

Year: 2006

Winner: Tiger Woods.

Runner-up: Chris DiMarco

Winning score: 270.

Margin: 2 shots.

First-place money: 720,000 pounds

Noteworthy: Woods became the first player since Tom Watson (1982-83) to win The Open in back-to-back years.

Summary: One month after missing the cut in a major for the first time, Woods won his third British Open title by seizing control with a 65 in the second round and closing with a 67. He hit only one drive all week on the baked out fairways, and that went on the adjacent fairway. Woods won his 11th major, tied with Walter Hagen. It was memorable for how he broke down and sobbed on the 18th green. It was his first major victory since the death of his father.


Year: 1967

Winner: Roberto De Vicenzo.

Runner-up: Jack Nicklaus.

Winning score: 278.

Margin: 2 shots.

First-place money: 21,000 pounds.

Noteworthy: De Vicenzo became the only South American to win a major until Angel Cabrera 40 years later in the U.S. Open at Oakmont.

Summary: De Vicenzo tied Gary Player for a course-record 67 in the third round to build a two-shot lead over Player, with Nicklaus another shot behind. The Argentine was one shot ahead of Nicklaus, who had already closed with a 69, when he played a 3-wood over the out-of-bounds area on the 16th hole and safely onto the green for a two-putt birdie. He closed with two pars for a 70 and finally won the Open after finishing no worse than third in the previous six championships.
