Here are five golfers who are in with a great chance of lifting the Claret Jug at Royal Troon when the British Open comes to a conclusion on Sunday evening.

RORY McILROY: The 2014 winner is seeking his fifth major and looks to be coming back into form just at the right time.

DUSTIN JOHNSON: Looking to add the Open to his CV after his US Open triumph at Oakmont and has power and muscle to spare.

JUSTIN ROSE: Has a US Open title to his name but his steady game can provide him with a first Claret Jug.

DANNY WILLETT: The Green Jacket is in the closet and he has proved he has the nerve to live with the best.
