    ON THE EAST COAST OF SCOTLAND, Carnoustie Golf Links, site of this year's Open Championship, is the northernmost course in the Open rota. It's also the toughest. No one seems to argue this point.

    The above video is a good preview of Carnoustie heading into the 147th edition of the Open Championship that tees off early on Thursday morning. There's aerial footage and interviews with Carnoustie's head pro and another fellow.

    Playing to a par of 71, Carnoustie is longer than any course in Open history: 7402 yards.

    This will be the eighth time Carnoustie has hosted the Open Championship. Here are the previous champions:

    1931 Tommy Armour
    1937 Henry Cotton
    1953 Ben Hogan
    1968 Gary Player
    1975 Tom Watson
    1999 Paul Lawrie
    2007 Padraig Harrington
