This tournament has been held in Britain since 1860. It is the only Major outside the United States, and is also known as "British Open". The term "open" refers to the fact that amateurs can participate in the tournament along with professionals.
Thanks to the special partnership between the Open Championship and Mercedes-Benz a golfer’s dream has come true for participants of the MercedesTrophy, the premium amateur tournament series: the competition "Drive to the Major" is to take place within the framework of the MercedesTrophy, and the winners can take part in the Monday Foursome with exclusivity. In addition, the cooperation guarantees a stylistically-assured presence for the future, since Mercedes-Benz provides the "Official Car of The Open Championship".
