This photo of the year thread has been fun to run with all year and we might have a new top five entry for 2014.

This is David Howell kicking off (or teeing off) the 143rd British Open with the sun just peeking over the stands.

Howell ended up making bogey at the first but shot an even-par 72 on the day.

What a cool way to get things going.
