Open Championship Photos: Umbrella Edition

During the second round of the British Open at Royal Troon, golfers were forced to deal with the weather elements which make the Open Championship special.

Namely wind and rain.

To battle these wet, windy conditions, caddies pulled out the most useful weapon in the bag today: the umbrella.

Here’s a roundup of some of the best rain shields at the Troon golf course.
