Tournament Overview

The most coveted trophy in the game and one of the most iconic in all of sport: more commonly referred to as the Claret Jug. Within minutes of winning the British Open, the "Champion Golfer of the World" gets his name engraved on that cup, and a place in golfing history.

Amateurs have played an important role in the tournament over the years, with players like Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose, and more recently Tom Lewis stepping into the international limelight with their golfing performances.

In 1860 Prestwick Golf Club staged an event for leading professionals. Eight players turned up and completed three rounds of the 12-hole course. The following year, in an effort to increase the entry, the event was thrown open to all the world, professionals and amateurs alike. The original winner’s trophy was a wide red leather belt heavily decorated with silver. Under the first rules of the competition it became the property of Young Tom Morris when he won the title three times in a row. No championship was held in 1871, but resumed the following year when Prestwick, the Royal and Ancient and the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers combined to provide the claret jug trophy that is still awarded to the champion golfer each year.
