The Open official poster oozes coolness!

2016 07 Postage Stamp
THE OPEN | ROYAL TROON

The official poster for the Open Championship at Royal Troon has been revealed – and it’s seriously clever.


Designed by American artist Lee Wybranski – who has also painted the posters for the last nine US Opens – it shows the world-famous ‘Postage Stamp’ eighth hole on a postage stamp, showing what Wybranski calls a ‘visual pun’. Here it is below:

“Royal Troon is one of the world’s best-known courses and the ‘Postage Stamp’ hole is its most famous,” Wybranski said. “So I didn’t simply want to do the obvious straight-forward depiction but to have some fun and be a little more clever while still creating an artistic rendering of this iconic scene.”

During the tournament, Wybranski will be on the course each day for a few hours, capturing the energy and excitement unique to the Open Championship.

“I love the idea of documenting the Open live, as it’s going on,” he added. “Whenever I paint in public, people stop and ask about it. I love talking to them about what they see, getting their reactions to my renderings, showing them how my art reflects what they see. The R&A’s social-media engine will let people know what I’m doing and where they can find me.”
