The British Open Championship is the oldest golf tournament in the world, having been held since 1860. The Open is one of the four major golf tournaments, along with the US Open, The Masters and the PGA Championship. The winner of the tournament receives the world-famous Claret Jug and is named “Champion Golfer of the Year”.
Harry Vardon holds the records for most Open victories with six, while other famous winners include Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Nick Faldo and Seve Ballesteros.
