To coincide with the 150th Open Championship to be held at St Andrews this year, golf writers Tony Webeck and Steve Keipert have published a new book that details the history of all of the Australian golfers ever to have played the event.
Aussies at The Open is the definitive record of Australia’s participation in The Open Championship, and this 432-page book is set to be released ahead of golf’s oldest major championship’s 150th staging this July at the ‘Home of Golf’, St Andrews.
The idea for the book was born of a simple observation in the authors’ cumulative 40 years of covering golf in Australia: everyone who has played The Open Championship has a story.
Since Clyde and Bruce Pearce travelled from Tasmania to contest the 1911 championship at Royal St George’s, just 192 Australians have appeared in The Open.
Co-authors Tony Webeck and Steve Keipert have interviewed 102 of those players for Aussies at The Open, which they hope serves not only as the complete history of Australians to compete at The Open but also provides never-before-shared insights into our greatest triumphs and sheds light on the stories that represent the quintessential charm of The Open.
