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.

Perfect June (summer) weather

Don't know 😕 them

#OTD 26 June 1925 @prestwickgc stages its last @theopen (and 24th in all, a record bettered only by St Andrews). Jim Barnes overturns Macdonald Smith’s final round lead of five shots over him to win by a single shot from Ted Ray. Stewards struggle to control a crowd of around 15,000 present for the closing round.

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. 👍😁

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

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

Is that Young Bob Kirk behind him?

Happy Birthday Old Tom.
