Tom Watson and Jordan Pickford Join Us at The 2018 Open Championship!

By Evan Chronis July 24, 2018

While golf's biggest names were taking on the challenge of the Carnoustie Championship Course at The 2018 Open Championship, our guests were having the times of their lives in our one-of-a-kind hospitality. 

Whether it's the access to worldwide superstars or the opportunity to go behind the scenes, our guests had the ultimate week at The 2018 Open Championship with The Open Experiences!

Tom Watson Joins Hospitality

What better way to enjoy The Open Championship than to have five-time champion Tom Watson join our guests in our hospitality suite? Watson spoke candidly to our guests, offering up classic stories of his time on the links and about his championship wins at The Open. He was funny, engaging and took any and all questions from our guests. He even stuck around afterwards to take pictures with our guests alongside the Claret Jug!

Behind the Scenes at the Media Center

Ever seen a golfer get grilled by the media and wonder what it's like to sit in those seats? Well, our guests were treated to special access to The Open's media center and shown how the whole works behind the scenes. They got the opportunity to sit in the media's seats and also get behind the podium to see the golfer's point of view during interviews!
