It was 10th edition of a local golf match organized by management of a golf club in Scotland, last 2 tournaments were won by a young boy of 17 year old. He was going to attempt the hat-trick in 1870. When the time came he did it again. As per local law now he was no more required to return the “Challenge Belt” before next annual match, So he kept it with him. Next year there was nothing to be given as award to the winner so there was no championship in 1871. In 1872 annual match was organized and a new trophy was ordered to be built while the match was in progress. Young Morris won that tournament again, 4th time, But trophy was not ready yet. The organization handed him a medal and later on the trophy too. This trophy is know as “Claret Jug”, Dream of every golfer to have his name engraved on it. Due to that mismanagement by organization now winner of The Open - also known as The British Open - gets 3 things. The Challenge Belt, The Claret Jug and the Medal.
