The Open is the only major outside of the United States and yet it is known as the tournament for everyone. They scratched the “British” out of the British Open and made it just The Open for that exact reason; it’s open to all. This could be why it is one of the most sought after wins on any professionals resume.
The players that know what it’s like to hold the claret jug as their own, know that they are among the finest few. Even in this video, you can tell that just by holding the trophy they are still in awe of it, no matter how long ago it was theirs.
“If I had to choose between this and my wife, I’d miss her.” Gary Player would choose the claret jug over his wife, now that’s how you know it’s important.
The one to win.
