We have all grown accustomed to listening to the silky melodious voice of Ivor Robson as he announces players on the first tee of a European Tour tournament.  

Well, all good things must come to an end. There will be extra media coverage on the great Tom Watson as he plays his final Open Championship at St. Andrews. Still, there will also be a focus on Ivor Robson as he makes his final announcement of the leaders heading out to do battle!

Thanks so much to the Golf Channel for bringing us this great story, and thanks, Ivor, for just being yourself!

Tom Watson isn't the only one saying farewell at St Andrew's!

This will be the iconic Ivor Robson’s final Open Championship as the official starter. We will all miss that silky voice!

For 41 Open Championships it has been one voice, Ivor Robson’s voice, that marked the time. When he takes to the tee at 6:32 a.m. on Thursday it will mark the beginning of the end for the iconic first tee announcer.

The 144th Open will be Robson’s last as the first tee announcer, ending a tenure that began at the Open in 1975 at Carnoustie. He hasn’t missed a championship or a tee time since.

“I feel you can’t go on forever and if you’re going to step off there’s no better place to do it than here,” said Robson, who began his week announcing for Wednesday’s Champion Golfers’ Challenge. “It’s time to go.”
