The Royal Birkdale Golf Club
Today marks the centenary of yet another British sporting institution - one now far removed from its humble beginnings upon the links of Scotland. On this, the first day's play in this classic 72-hole stroke-play tournament and with some E45,000 in prize money at stake, a field representative of the finest golfers in the world challenges the great Jack Nicklaus of the USA as he defends his title.
