Congratulations to Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland, who won the coveted Claret Jug at the British Open this weekend making McIlroy a member of a very small elite of players who have won three grand slams at the age of 25. Rory may well have the ‘real’ claret jug, which of course is pretty much priceless, adorning his trophy cabinet for the next 12 months, but if you want something nearly as prestigious for your golf tournament then have a look at this one.
