The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), Patron of the Open Championship, is celebrating 150 years of the tournament this year by holding an exhibition of photography all this week at St Andrews.
RBS has joined forces with Getty Images, St Andrews University and The R&A Archives to create ‘Celebrating 150 years of The Open Championship‘ – an exclusive photographic exhibition which brings together some of the sport’s most memorable moments.
The photography will help bring golf fans closer to a selection of the iconic images that have shaped the most prestigious golf tournament since it was first played at Prestwick Golf Club in 1860.
The exhibition features archive imagery dating back to the 1800s showing Open champions Willie Park Sr and Young Tom Morris, iconic shots throughout the 1900s and 2000s as well as capturing previous winners at St Andrews including Sam Snead, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods.
The exhibition will be unveiled at the on-course RBS branch and will be free for all to enjoy from 9am until 6pm every day of the tournament starting from Monday July 12.
‘Celebrating 150 years of The Open Championship‘ will also be available for golf fans and RBS customers to view online at rbs.co.uk/golf
