Golf’s most famous trophy, the claret jug is touring the UK and Ireland as part of the countdown to The 150th Open, taking place at the home of golf, St Andrews.

The 150th Open Claret Jug Tour, in partnership with HSBC UK, will give fans the chance to follow in the footsteps of Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Jack Nicklaus and Sir Nick Faldo by getting up close to one of sport’s most recognised prizes.

Starting at Royal St George's Golf Club in Kent, host of The 149th Open, the tour will visit eight cities across the UK & Ireland including Belfast, Dublin, Manchester, London, Leeds, Liverpool, Edinburgh and Birmingham before reaching St Andrews, where it will be at the Old Course, on Sunday 10 July.
