Past champs rained out at Open

Bradenton resident Tony Jacklin was set to play in The Open Champions' Challenge, but inclement weather - from heavy rain and high winds made the Old Course at St. Andrews unplayable.

The Royal & Ancient Golf Club, the governing body for golf outside the United States and its territories made the decision to cancel the event, according to the official website for The Open.

The tournament featured past champions of the British Open playing in a team format of three or four players per group the day before the third major of the year begins.

The players were to play four holes at St. Andrews (Nos. 1, 2, 17 and 18)

It was being played to celebrate the 150th anniversary of golf's oldest major and donated the 50,000 pounds (allotted for the winning team) to the Seve Ballesteros Foundation, according to The Open's website.
