circa 1873: Scottish golfer ‘Young’ Tom Morris (1851 – 1875) wearing the British Open belt which he won four times. ‘Young’ Tom and his father ‘Old’ Tom became the only father and son to hold successive Open titles when ‘Old’ Tom became the oldest player to win a title, aged 46 years and 99 days, in 1867 and ‘Young’ Tom won in 1868 to become the youngest Open Champion. ‘Young’ Tom began his playing career at an early age winning an exhibition match at Perth aged only 13, and winning his first professional tournament three years later.
