The weekend's sporting action starts early with The Open Championship from the Old Course at St Andrews. For the first time since 2012, golf's oldest major returns to the famous course in Scotland.

Collin Morikawa won the competition last year and Shane Lowry claimed a famous victory in 2019. Rory McIlroy, Xander Schauffele and Jordan Spieth are amongst the favourites to win the 150th edition of the tournament.

Coverage of the Open Championship begins at 6:30 am on Thursday morning and continues across the weekend. On Friday morning, coverage of day two begins at 6:30 am and runs until 8:30 pm that evening.

Saturday, July 16.

The final summer Test between New Zealand and Ireland takes place on Saturday morning.

Ireland created history last weekend when they beat the All-Blacks for the first time in New Zealand. Andy Farrell's side recorded a fully deserved 23-12 victory in Dunedin to level the series ahead of Saturday's third and final Test.

If Ireland can beat the All-Blacks again on Saturday, and win the series, it will be one of the team's greatest achievements and a massive boost ahead of the World Cup in France next year.

New Zealand, meanwhile, will be aiming to avoid a shock series defeat and show that last week's defeat, their fourth loss in 35 games against Ireland, was a mere blip.

You can stream the final test with a NOW Sports Membership, with the match kicking off at 8:05 am.

Ireland's clash against New Zealand is immediately followed by Australia versus England in the third Test of England's summer tour. The series is level at 1-1 after England beat the Wallabies last weekend.

The Open Championship also returns on Saturday morning, with coverage once again beginning bright and early at 9 am. You can stream The Open with a NOW Sports Membership.

Sunday, July 17.

The final round of The Open Championship takes place on Sunday, with coverage of the 150th edition of the tournament starting at 11 am. You can stream the golf major with a NOW Sports Membership.

The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship reaches its conclusion on Sunday, with Limerick facing Kilkenny at Croke Park.

Kilkenny are the most successful hurling team in the history of the All-Ireland. The Cats have won the Liam MacCarthy Cup a record 36 times, but have not won the trophy since 2015.

Brian Cody's team, who reached the decider after beating Clare in the semi-finals, are in their first final since 2019, and they face formidable opponents.

Limerick are the reigning All-Ireland champions and have been the best team in the country over the last few years. The Treaty County won the championship in 2018, 2020 and 2021.

If they win on Sunday, Limerick will be the first team since Kilkenny in 2007, 2008 and 2009 to win the All-Ireland Hurling Championship three years in a row.

Limerick have the opportunity to cement their place as one of hurling's greatest ever teams, but Kilkenny won't make it easy for them.
