Tiger Woods has waited a long time to earn that 15th major. It's now been four years since that epic 91 hole battle with Rocco Mediate helped him earn his 14th title at the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines. Now he'll look to grab his fourth Open Championship at Royal Lytham, which would be his first British Open championship since 2006.

The British Open will be broadcast on ESPN exclusively (and a tape-delay of the final round on ABC). Here's the info on live coverage below:
