A putt to win The Open


Film winners announced

Noel Daly and grandson Nathaniel have won a pair of tickets to see The 148th Open at Royal Portrush after their short film was picked out as best capturing ‘a putt to win The Open’.

The directorial duo will be there to soak up the Northern Irish atmosphere and watch on as former Champion Golfers of the Year such as Tiger Woods, home favourite Rory McIlroy and Francesco Molinari bid for the Claret Jug.

Not only will Nathaniel and The One Club member Noel be in situ as The Open returns to Portrush for the first time since 1951, but the pair have also won the honour of being the faces of The Open brand film.

The 60-second piece, created by Noel and starring Nathaniel, captures a young golfer who is prevented from heading out to the course until he finishes his dinner.

But not to be foiled, Nathaniel comes up with an ingenious solution to disposing of the peas that plague his plate, calling on dog Dexter and his knife as a makeshift putter.

Lining up the final pea, with Dexter watching on, he mutters the eternal phrase 'this putt for The Open,' and duly sinks it, emptying his plate of the greens and ready to head out for a round.
