Watching the Claret Jug being lifted is one of the most iconic sights in sport - and another capacity crowd is set to witness more Open history being made next year at Royal St George’s.
Tickets for the Championship Sunday at The 149th Open have sold out as demand to be in Sandwich for golf’s oldest and most prestigious major continues to scale unprecedented heights.
Next year’s Championship is already the fastest selling to date, following priority access sales to members of The One Club in July, while weekly and weekend bundles have also sold out.
In fact, excitement for the return of the Claret Jug to the South East was such that the record for the highest selling day of advanced tickets in Open history was smashed in under seven hours.
And tickets are selling fast for the other Championship Days, with less than 10 per cent remaining for Saturday, so golf fans are encouraged to move fast to secure their place on moving day.
The battle to become the next Champion Golfer of the Year is scheduled to take place at the famous links venue in Kent for the 15th time between July 12 and 19 in 2020.
Northern Ireland’s Darren Clarke sealed his maiden major title the last time The Open visited Royal St George’s in 2011, fulfilling a childhood ambition to triumph on his 20th appearance.
