Getting ready for The Open

June 26th, 2015

In addition to the latest golf business news stories, today I am pleased to be able to bring you, courtesy of Toro, a collection of eight short films about preparations for next month’s Open Championship. If you are looking for something to whet your appetite for your forthcoming visit to St Andrews, whether in person or on screen, I recommend you allow yourself two minutes to watch this one.
