Police say a man has been arrested on suspicion of assault after allegedly taking a golf cart from the course staging the British Open and driving it into a security guard.

The incident occurred at about 7.30pm Wednesday (6.30am Thursday NZ time) at the end of the final practice day before the tournament began on Thursday.

Merseyside police say in a statement that a 45-year-old man from the local area took the golf cart from the Royal Liverpool course and collided with the guard, who sustained a slight leg injury.

Police said the man then steered the cart into a barrier near an entrance to the course in Hoylake, England.
