The R&A celebration of light was attended by residents of St Andrews who gathered at the world-renowned Old Course to watch celebrated moments from the championship’s cherished history brought to life through the dramatic projection show.

The state-of-the-art production was narrated by actor and lifelong golf fan Gerard Butler. It charted the remarkable journey of golf since The Open began in 1860.

A tribute in support of Ukraine and its people also took place as colours of the nation’s flag were projected onto the clubhouse building.
