The Open:  Did You Know? 

  • “Young” Tom Morris won the British Open in four consecutive years, a feat that has not been matched. If a player wins three times in a row, they are allowed to keep the trophy for good. At the time, the trophy was called the Challenge Belt. Since Morris was able to keep it, the Claret Jug was made for the winners going forward.
  • Gary Player has appeared at the British Open 46 times which is the most in tournament history.
  • One of the oldest golf clubs in the world, The Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews (R&A) plans the British Open. This is the ruling body of all tournaments outside the U.S. and Mexico.
  • “Old” Tom Morris held the record for the largest margin of victory in a major championship (14 strokes at the 1862 Open Championship) for 138-years, until Tiger Woods won the 2000 U.S. Open by 15 strokes.
