On the Monday after the 143rd Open Championship, Golf Monthly attended a brilliant Ralph Lauren event at Royal Liverpool Golf Club with Matteo Manassero.
Manassero – a Ralph Lauren RLX Golf Ambassador – finished in a tie for 19th at Hoylake, his best result since his debut at Turnberry as a 17-year-old in 2009.
Ralph Lauren is a Patron and Official Outfitter of the Open Championship.
The morning after his top-20 finish, Manassero played the 18th hole – talking guests through his club selection and strategy, explaining how to execute various shots and discussing his all-round Open Championship experience.
After his masterclass, those in attendance were invited to have breakfast with the amenable 21-year-old and ask him questions about his life in golf, his interests, hopes for the future and any other topics of interest.
Golf Monthly’s Nick Bonfield also spoke exclusively to the four-time European Tour champion (above). You can read his thoughts in the November and January editions of the magazine.
Below, you can see a highlights video of the masterclass, as well as some images of the RLX Golf Ambassador throughout the course of the day.
