British Open Tickets
Details of British Open and the Ticket Luck value
Also known as The Open Championship, the British Open is one of the oldest professional golf championships. This is one of the major sports championships that is held outside of the USA. Ever since the year 1979, the championship has been taking place in July on a weekend, after every third Friday to be more particular. The British Open is held in either England or Scotland on one of the nine golf courses or 'links'. It also was once held in 1951 in the Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland.
The champions are awarded prize money. The value keeps changing from year to year depending on the number of professionals who manage to make a cut. In 2012, the first prize was at a breathtaking £900, 000 and an overall prize fun of £5 million. How could we forget the trophy that is ever golfer's dream to get hold of; the Claret Jug.
In British Open, the top seventy players are considered. A 72-hole medal play or stroke play tournament is held with a cut after thirty six holes. The championship is slightly different from the other four major golf championships that take place. This is because the rules include a four-hole playoff towards the closing of a regulation and then moves its way into sudden death if the four holes end up being tied.
The winners are not only awarded with prize money but are also recognized with some pretty amazing awards. These include The Challenge Belt, The Golf Championship Trophy, Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals, Ryle Memorial Medal, Tooting Bec Cup and Braid Taylor Memorial Medal to name a few.
The British Open is a part of the PGA Tour and takes place at different venues each time. These are decided years before hand. The 2013 British Open will be held in Scotland in the Muirfield course, the 2014 championship will be held at the Royal Liverpool Golf Club, Hoylake, England and the 2015 and 2016 British Open Championships both in Scotland at the Old Course at Saint Andrews and Royal Troon Golf Club respectively. The British Open is shown on television but the outstanding venues add a whole lot more to the games and compel sports lovers to go for British Open tickets.
The British Open welcomes regional and international players. The aim is to give an equal opportunity to players from all over the world. The decision to include players from five continents was taken in 2004. Those who qualify play before the actual championship in order to be shortlisted.
Whether it is Nick Faldo, Jack Niclaus, Tom Watson or Tiger Woods, these Claret Jug winners are the reason why the British Open tickets are so sought after. So, why wait? This year's event will be held at Scotland and will be every golfer's dream to attend.
