The British Open Championship—the oldest of the four major championships in professional golf—is in full swing at Muirfield golf club in Edinburgh. The tournament was first held on October 17, 1860, at Prestwick Golf Club in Scotland. Eight golfers played three rounds in a single day and the winner, Willie Park, was presented with the prize of a red leather belt with a silver buckle.
Today, The Open is the only major tournament held outside the United States. The other three domestic tournaments are made up of the Masters, the U.S. Open and the PGA Championship (@pgachampionship). Want more great golf content in your feed? Be sure to follow these Instagrammers:

Instagrammers Capture the Château de Versailles
Want to see more real-time photos and videos of Versailles? Be sure to visit the Château de Versailles location page.
Just southwest of Paris, France, lies the Château de Versailles—one of the world’s most famous palaces. Versailles is known not just for its lavish decor and architecture, but also as a historic symbol for the country. The court of Versailles was the center of political power in France starting when Louis XIV moved there from Paris in 1682. In October 1789, the royal family was forced to leave Versailles when a mob of mostly female revolutionaries stormed the palace and essentially evicted Louis XVI and his queen, Marie-Antoinette.
The Château now serves as a museum and one of France’s biggest tourist attractions, with more than three million people visiting the grounds each year. Today, Versailles had a special visit from the Tour de France (@letourdefrance), which began its final day at the palace en route to the finish line tonight along the Avenue des Champs-Élysées in Paris.
