The claret jug may not be among the largest trophies in sports, but the magnitude of its importance is another story.
In a video first shared on Twitter by @TheOpen, several winners of the claret jug discuss what the trophy means to them. Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Rory McIlroy and Greg Norman are all included in the 90 second video.
Player’s quote about the relatively small size of the claret jug may be the most telling: “It’s not this massive big trophy. Dynamite is small.”
Nicklaus says, “It’s almost like holding a baby in your arms.” Others are rendered speechless with the jug in their possession.
