The Open: Champions washed out by the weather

The four-hole Champions Challenge ahead of The Open at St Andrews was cancelled yesterday due to bad weather.

Twenty-five former holders of the title had been due to take part, but rain and strong winds prompted organisers to call it off.

The event was part of the celebrations to mark the 150th anniversary of the first championship. The R&A later announced they have donated the Champions Challenge prize fund of £50,000 to the Seve Ballesteros Foundation.
