Product Description

You'll love this because...

 Via newspaper clippings from the past, you can relive the wonderful history of The Open Championship. 

  • Personalise with any name and message
  • Handbound hardback covers
  • Tabloid size editions with colour pages available from 2006 onwards
  • Option to present in a luxurious gift box
  • Incredible newspaper coverage from 1934 to 2016

Relive the history of The Open golf championship through newspaper clippings in this personalised Open golf book. With coverage beginning in 1934, the year of Henry Cotton’s first win, this timeless piece of golf memorabilia takes you through decades of history, revisiting all the key moments from Muirfield, Royal Liverpool, St. Andrews and many more, right up until Henrik Stenson’s 2016 triumph.

The oldest of the four golf majors, and the only one to be annually held outside of the United States, the first Open Championship took place in 1860 at Prestwick Golf Club. Prestwick would be its home for the first twelve years, and the competition would remain exclusively in Scotland until 1894, when it was played at St. George’s, and won by Englishman J.H. Taylor, only the third ever non-Scottish victor. Taylor would go on to lift the trophy five times, a feat bettered by only one man in history, Harry Vardon, who won six. The 1950’s were dominated by Australia’s Peter Thomson, who incredibly won four times in five years, and in the 1960s and 70s, Jack Nicklaus became the competition’s nearly man, finishing as runner-up a record seven times, though the American would go on to lift the trophy three times too. In 1985, Sandy Lyle became the first Scot to win The Open in 65 years, by the smallest margin of one stroke. And in 2016, Henrik Stenson won the trophy with the greatest under par score of all time, registering a -20 at Royal Troon.

Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.

gillybean7 Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

Recently bought for my fathers 8th birthday. With the age he is it's always difficult to find something different as over the years I must have bought him everything to do with golf. This was a great find he absolutely loved it .Starting from 1934 the year before he was born right up to date. Get it personalised to make it extra special.

Excellent service!

I ordered the book as a Christmas gift and was doubtful if it would arrive in time as I ordered quite late. I needn't have worried as it arrived in time, even with the free postage option . I am very pleased.

Mixed feelings

I bought two books. One of the books was amazing. My daughters name was in the story on every page. It was great. The other book had my daughters name at the top of the page and not in the story. I was very disappointed.
