Lowey Sponsor, Auction Winner


No 7 officially The Champion Golfers Trophy.. The original like many other trophies is never given out. Winner gets a replica. There is also another replica in the British Golf Museum in St Andrews and 2 more that the R and A use for publicity like Sports Personality n when you see it on the TV. The winners name on the original does not get engraved till November when all of the R and As trophies are engaged. All the replicas are shinier as they have more nickel content. The original also has a dent on it where it was dropped by Tom Watson.. they didn't do replicas back then!

Was lucky enough to work in the R and A clubhouse for 4 years. :lol:
