Replacing Ivor Robson, who retired at The 144th Open last year at St Andrews after serving as official starter for more than 40 years, Lancaster went on to say,
It is an honour and a privilege to be given the opportunity to become the official starter. The Open is one of the most prestigious events in world sport and I have long been inspired by its heritage and the tremendous performances of the golfing greats over the years. Matt and I are very much looking forward to playing a part in history by introducing the players on the first tee.
This July PerryGolf guests on our 2016 Open Championship Golf Cruise with Azamara Club Cruises and either of our 2 Escorted Land Tours – Aberdeen & The Scottish Highlands OR The Open Venues of England’s Lancashire Coast – shall enjoy attendance to The Open at Royal Troon.
