Scottish golf patrons are backing the return of The Senior Open Championship presented by MasterCard to the country as the build up to The 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles continues to gather pace.
Tickets are now on sale to watch the leading Senior golfers at Carnoustie from July 22 - 25 for the 24th Senior Open Championship, where American Loren Roberts will defend the title he won last year.
Record crowds packed the galleries the last time the Senior Open was held in Scotland, at Royal Troon in 2008, and discounted advance tickets are now available for this year’s Championship at Carnoustie, where Tom Watson won the first of his five Open Championships in 1975.
The Senior Open Championship’s return to Scotland is once again supported by EventScotland, the national events agency which has a prominent role in delivering Scotland’s preparations for The 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles.
Paul Bush, Chief Operating Officer at EventScotland, said: “EventScotland is pleased to be supporting the Senior Open Championship again for the fifth time in the last six years, and delighted to have seen this world-class golf tournament grow from strength to strength during this time. To have events of this quality return to Scotland on such a regular basis really does underline Scotland’s position as The Home of Golf.”
