    The Story of 1999 - Original Documentary

    The Story of 1999 - Original Documentary

    In the final episode of Season 2 on The Open Podcasts, we relive one of the most dramatic sporting events in history, and an unforgettable Open Championship.

    This week is The Story of 1999, an Original Documentary episode from The Open focusing on The 128th Open Championship at the turn of the century, won by Scottish hero Paul Lawrie at Carnoustie. The story is told through the perspectives of the major characters of the drama, including Lawrie, Justin Leonard and Jean van de Velde, the man who looked sure to claim the Claret Jug.

    Narrator Steve Rider takes us back to 1999, as Paul Lawrie's incredible golf on Sunday and a nightmare 18th hole for van de Velde help rank The 128th Open as one of the most shocking, difficult and brilliant Championships ever held.

    This episode has been a co-production from The R&A and IMG.

    Justin Leonard - Tales of The Open

    Telling some of the greatest stories in golf and in sports with ten new Original Documentaries. This week on The Open Podcasts is the story of the Champion Golfer of 1997, and one of the finest players of Open Championships in the past 30 years, Justin Leonard.

    Leonard knows what it is like to win The Open, and to lose The Open, and in this edition of Tales of The Open, the American shares those stories in dramatic fashion. A man who has achieved so much in the game, Leonard delivered some incredible shots at Royal Troon in 1997, as well as some touching words, that cemented his place in history. He very nearly won the Claret Jug again for good measure, just two years later in 1999.

    Narrator Shane O'Donoghue takes us back to the late 1990s, as through colour commentary, narration and Leonard's own insight, we relive the career of a remarkable player in this Original Documentary from The Open.
