A brief history of The Open

The first ever winner of The Open back in 1860 was Willie Park Snr, however, a gentleman and son combo each called Tom Morris won six of the first 10 opens between the two of them. 

Moving into 1870, Young Tom Morris continued to dominate the field. At only 19 he received his third title. After three successive wins, he continued on to win the Challenge Belt and was the first ever competitor to hold the prize. 

Fast forward into the 1900’s the rise of James Braid began as he went onto win a total of four Championships. Around the 1910, a gentleman named Harry Vardon matched James Briad’s tally of 5 wins. 

After a four year hiatus due to the first world war, Briad and Vardon returned to the greens just before the war began. While Briad claimed an inability to play due to age, Vardon went on to win his sixth Open. 

This rich history only led to what is considered as one of the greatest decades in golf, 1970s. Huge names dominated this decade, as well as having the first continental European winner – Arnaud Massy. 

How long does The Open last?
