Mercedes-Benz and The Open 2019
Between 18 – 21 July 2019 the world’s top golfers descended on Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland to contest the 148th Open Championship – and Mercedes-Benz was proud to once again be an official Patron of this prestigious event.
Ireland’s Shane Lowry claimed a first major championship win with a dominant six-shot victory on 15 under par amid raucous scenes at The Open.
Lowry started the celebrations early, his arms aloft as he squeezed through the crowds who swarmed the 18th fairway.
