Jennifer Sräga at the 150th Open

It was St Andrews – the ‘home of golf’ – and surely the most eagerly awaited Open Championship for decades. Staged against a backdrop of 290,000 spectators from all over the world, millions more golfers and non-golfers were experiencing The 150th Open on their screens and phones.

On the Monday practice day, The R&A hosted the ‘Celebration of Champions’, a unique four-hole team match now established during Open Championship week whenever the event is played at this historic golf venue; the fans saying thank you to the likes of Tom Watson, Tiger Woods, Gary Player, Georgia Hall, Nick Faldo, Bob Charles and more; all played out on the iconic golfing acres of the first, second, 17th and 18th holes on the Old Course.

This year’s event brought an extra reason to be cheerful. An international quartet of EDGA players with a disability: Monique Kalkman of Holland, Juan Postigo Arce of Spain, Kipp Popert of England and Jennifer Sräga of Germany were able to meet, talk with, compare swing tips, practise alongside, and then play in the Celebration with these very legends.
