A hugely rare signed photo of golfing legend Old Tom Morris has sold for £12,000 ($15,600).

Old Tom is the man who co-founded the Open Championship in 1860, hit the first tournament’s first shot, and won the event four times.

Old Tom also designed 60 courses, including St Andrews, and introduced golfing cornerstones such as 18 holes, manicured putting surfaces and tee boxes.

The 11 by 9 inch item, offered on collecting website JustCollecting, sold to an American buyer. It pictures Old Tom playing out of a bunker at St Andrews.

“Old Tom Morris signed photos are among the holy grails for golf collectors,” explains JustCollecting Dan Wade.

“They’re so rare, and Old Tom is so important to the history of the game, that collectors always go wild when one comes up for sale.

“As you enjoy the 146th Open at Birkdale this week, remember to raise a glass to Old Tom – the man who started it all.”
