Getting ready to tee-up at the 2019 Open

The 148th Open Championship committee at Royal Portrush Golf Club has appointed me as their media consultant as part of the preparations for next July’s tournament.

It means working in close conjunction with senior officials the Royal & Ancient, the game’s ruling body, who include Mike Woodcock, head of Corporate Communications and Johnnie Cole-Hamilton, the executive director.

All tickets for the championship have already been sold because of an unprecedented demand making it the fastest selling in the history of the Open.

Two thirds were purchased in Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic with the rest mostly being taken up by fans in Britain, Europe and the United States.
