The Icons Series is delighted to announce that legendary Open Championship starter Ivor Robson will be the Official Tournament Matches Starter for this year’s Icons of Rugby.
Ivor will start all the matches beginning with the four-balls at 0830 on Saturday morning, no doubt adding to nerves of the competing icons.
Beginning in Carnoustie in 1975, Ivor had a long and distinguished 41 year career starting every Open Championship until he hung-up the microphone at St Andrews in 2015.
A hugely popular part of the European Tour furniture, Ivor also worked Ryder Cup’s and other major European Tour events.
Icons of Rugby Tournament Director Marc O’Leary said, “In addition to the Icons competing, we are genuinely thrilled to have yet another iconic figure in golf taking part at the Icons of Rugby. It’s yet another brilliant addition to what will make the unique event a truly special occasion.”
