Today marks the birthday of Young Tom Morris, son of Prestwick Golf Club’s first Keeper of the Green, Old Tom Morris, and winner of The Open an incredible four times in a row from 1868. All four of his victories were over Prestwick’s original 12-hole course, the links where he had learned golf as a boy. Among many feats in his short, illustrious life, was The Open’s first ever hole-in-one at the 166-yard 8th hole. After his hat-trick of victories, Young Tom was allowed to keep the original Challenge Belt, which had been funded by Prestwick members.

Is that Young Bob Kirk behind him?

Great golf course. The 12 inside holes they played 3 times to get 36 holes. The outer 6 or the new holes were built in 1899. This made an 18 hole course. Playing the original 12 let's you know what golf was like in the mid 1800s

Loved playing the course in 1975. 👍😁

Looks like the Auld Kirk in the background which didn’t have a railway line in front of it back in those days.

Very nice golf course Prestwick Golf Club I played there in 2019 and had a caddie as well, very good day out it’s got history Loved it

Happy Birthday Old Tom.

I’ve played your course in july 2015 with my son. Incredible emotions. Ciao from Italy

Great course. Held many Opens . Sign on pro shop: “ under no circumstances should a round take more than 3:20”. And that was walking.

Loved the film about him....'Tommy's Honour'

Tell us something we didn't know

Choo Choo, Jim (Judy), Butch, Charles, Scott, David, Danny, Steve, Stan Meek …….we have enjoyed Prestwick Golf Club every time we have had the pleasure to visit…..

Privileged to have played there and to play this fab game. Just not to the same standard. ⛳️🏌️‍♂️

I heard that his swing was so powerful that he would sometimes break the hickory shaft on his downswing

Old Tom had a swim in North Sea then a guid dram before starting work at 6.30 at St Andrews We have lightweights today , soft and spoiled .

And luckily (for us) his name is the first in the Auld Claret Jug although he wasn’t presented with it in 1872 as it wasn’t ready in time !!

where is the old Belt that Tom kept 😎🏌

A real pioneer for the game. I wonder what he'd think about the game today.

One of the games true foundational people ⛳️⛳️⛳️⛳️⛳️ Far & sure Tom far & sure ⛳️⛳️⛳️⛳️

Iconic course and history 🏌🏻

Big hands

Interesting bit of history and a great photo so thanks for posting!

Very interesting and a great photo! Thanks for posting 👍🏽

While the above photo of Young Tommy with his Championship Belt is interesting, I feel the attached old photo of Old Tom Morris walking through the ruins of St Andrews Cathedral on his way to visit his sons (Young Tommy’s) grave very sad, haunting and moving.

Thanks for remembering my great grand uncle Young Tommy. What would he have achieved if he had lived longer? The Winner of The Open was also known as “The Champion Golfer of The World” from as early as the 1860’s through to the 1930’s (one example of many form 1900 is attached). Why can’t the R & A starts to again call The Open winner, The Champion Golfer of the World. The marketing of golf in St Andrews (my home town) has become non existent, first Old Toms shop is now known as The Open and the failure to really promote The Open. We need to get the R&A to be accountable for their lack of action and decisions.
