The 140th Open Championship at Royal St George’s will live long in the memory, not just because the Prince charmed the links to become one of the most popular winners in the event’s history, but because it would be the first championship contested since the death of the great Severiano Ballesteros.

A 200-1 rank outsider by the name of Darren Clarke, albeit with his fair share of fortunate bounces during Sunday’s final round, prevailed by three shots over American duo Phil Mickelson and big-hitting Dustin Johnson.

Having tried and failed on 19 times to lift the famous Claret Jug, Clarke became the oldest man to win The Open for 44 years. Sit back and enjoy highlights of all four days, reliving that incredibly composed final-round from the Northern Irishman.

But just like the US Open several weeks before it, the third major of the season witnessed another fairytale moment, this time in the shape of 20-year-old English amateur Tom Lewis, who flew around Sandwich in an opening 65, in the same group as his name-sake Tom Watson - who made a stunning hole-in-one.

Using exclusive interviews with the players themselves, the story of golf's oldest and most coveted major is retold in this exclusive DVD. It also provides a fitting tribute to Seve, as part of a DVD extras package with highlights of the 2011 Amateur Open Championship and 18-hole flyovers of Sandwich.
