The R&A is inviting golf fans to take part in a celebration of The Open this year, and asks: who would win 'The Open for the Ages?'

‘The Open for The Ages’ will bring together many of golf’s greatest champions for the first time to compete against each other over the Old Course at St Andrews in a compelling programme 

It features 50 years of archive footage expertly edited and woven together with modern graphics and new commentary to imagine a Championship contested by the legends of the sport including Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Seve Ballesteros, Tom Watson, Sir Nick Faldo and Rory McIlroy. 

The Open for the Ages

‘The Open for The Ages’ will culminate in a final-round programme that will air on Sunday 19 July when it will be broadcast globally to fans around the world on TV, TheOpen.com and The Open’s social media channels.

Anticipation and excitement for the final round programme will build up from Thursday 16th to Saturday 18th July when coverage of the first three rounds of ‘The Open for The Ages’ will be provided by in-play clips, live leaderboards and end of play highlights across The Open’s social media channels 

The winner of ‘The Open for The Ages’ will be determined by a fan vote.

"Golf is one of the very few sports where this concept can be created and brought to life," said Martin Slumbers, Chief Executive of The R&A.

"The way in which the sport is filmed allows us a truly unique opportunity to reimagine history and bring together the greatest players from many different eras on a scale which has not been done before, either in golf or in other sports. 

“We are all keenly feeling the absence of The Open from the global sporting calendar this year and so we hope that this broadcast will generate real interest and enjoyment for the millions of golf and sports fans who closely follow the Championship every year.” 

The R&A’s international TV broadcast partners, including Sky Sports in the UK.  

It will also be made available via TheOpen.com and The Open’s YouTube and Facebook channels
