The British Open golf will receive a record number of 290,000 visitors at the next edition on the courses of St Andrews in Scotland. According to the BBC, there were more than 1.3 million ticket applications to the major tournament, which will be held for the 150th time.
The record was 239,000 visitors in the year 2000, when Tiger Woods triumphed over St Andrews. The American, who made a surprising return to the Masters in Augusta earlier this month after his serious car accident, has promised his participation in the British Open. The tournament will take place from July 14-17.
