From comical swings to celebrity visits and incredible shots, we look back at the highlights from another action-packed week in the Open Zone.
The innovation was introduced as part of Sky Sports' award-winning winning coverage of The Open last year, with the studio returning with extra innovations for this week's event at Royal Birkdale.
Based next to the practice range and with large crowds congregating throughout the week, the Open Zone saw the world's top players and a number of other recognisable names stop by to showcase their golfing talents.
Jon Rahm and Ian Poulter were among the players to wow the fans by taking part in the 4-iron challenge in the bunker, with defending champion Henrik Stenson and world No 1 Dustin Johnson among the others to stop by for a chat.
The players joined Claude Harmon and Nick Dougherty during the early part of the week, as did Rickie Fowler and Justin Rose, with many of the players having to think on their feet to answer spectator questions in a Q&A.
Sky Sports' commentary team also came in to discuss the tournament as it progressed, with Paul McGinley and Butch Harmon among those analysing player swings and demonstrating techniques to improve your game.
