2013 Open Golf Championship / new MP-4 and MP-54 irons

Sun Jul 14, 2013 9:52 am

Posted by unbeatenthisyear


Welcome to the 2013 Mizuno Tour Blog at the 142nd Open Golf Championship from Muirfield, Scotland!  

Please keep tuned in for all the latest info. We plan to bring you news and images of our players, the course and practice ground, what’s going on inside the Workshop, and the first images of a couple of new products that we’ll be introducing this week - all from our Workshop sited on the range. 

We arrived on Friday night from the Scottish Open and most of Saturday was spent cleaning the Workshop and setting it up for the week. It was freshly stocked between the French and Scottish Opens so we’re rearing to go!

The weather forecast is good, the course is fast and running and the rough is penal – everything is in place for what promises to be another fantastic Championship.
 

Whilst the Scottish Open still has its final day to be played out, Sunday is the first official practice day at Muirfield. We’ve only seen a few players so far, including Luke who played a practice round yesterday. 
 

Here’s a few images taken yesterday before the crowds arrive…

Thanks for the photos - getting excited already! 
It is a paradoxical but profoundly true and important principle of life that the most likely way to reach a goal is to be aiming not at that goal itself but at some more ambitious goal beyond it. - Arnold Toynbee

Course/club history

The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers — as the golf club at Muirfield is properly known — is one of the oldest golf clubs in the world, and the source of the earliest written rules of golf, which date back to 1744. Yet the club has only been based at Muirfield comparatively recently: it was in 1891 that the current course was opened and the club moved from its previous home at the links in nearby Musselburgh. Just a year later, in 1892, Muirfield hosted the first of its fifteen Open Championships, which was won by Harold Hilton, one of only three amateurs to have lifted the Claret Jug.  

The course is renowned amongst golfers as being perhaps the fairest test of all the Open venues, with few of the quirky bounces and hidden danger that links courses often contain. Two circuits of nine rotate in opposite directions, the back nine looping inside the front nine, ensuring that the golfer is never faced with the same wind direction on two consecutive holes. As Jack Nicklaus once put it, “What you see is what you get.”
 

Whether the honesty of the layout has had anything to do with it or not, the fact remains that Muirfield has an astonishing record of identifying the greatest golfers of the age, with a roll of honour which reads like a Who’s Who of golf over the last century, with winners including Els, Faldo, Watson, Nicklaus, Player, Hagen and Vardon.
