HOYLAKE, England (AP) - A capsule look at 10 top players expected to contend at the 143rd British Open, to be played July 17-20 at Royal Liverpool Golf Club (players listed in predicted order of finish):

Country: Sweden.

World ranking: 2.

Worldwide wins: 12.

Majors: None.

2014 wins: None.

2014 majors: Masters-T14, US Open-T4.

Backspin: Stenson began his big run at this time a year ago, with a tie for third in the Scottish Open, runner-up at the British Open and Bridgestone Invitational, third in the PGA Championship and three wins after that to capture the FedEx Cup and Race to Dubai. He had a slow start in 2014, though he is rounding into form with top 10s in five of his last six tournaments.
