The Open Pay Tribute to Andy Murray on Royal Troon Leaderboard

The Open Pay Tribute to Andy Murray on Royal Troon Leaderboard

The Open came up with a brilliant way of paying tribute to Andy Murray following his Wimbledon victory.

The Scot added a second Wimbledon trophy to his cabinet this afternoon with a 6-4 7-6 7-6 win over Milos Raonic at SW19.

It was a comprehensive performance from Murray, who kept his serve all match before proving too good for his Canadian opponents in the final tie break.

As expected, Murray is being heralded for his victory – his first Grand Slam win since beating Novak Djokovic on the grass in 2013.

It was his 11th Slam final and the third Slam of his career, now he’ll go into the Olympics looking to defend the gold he won in London four years ago.

Among the many tributes paid, The Open came up with an unique way of congratulating Murray ahead of the golf major kicking off at Royal Troon on Thursday:

Classy touch from the R&A.

The tributes will continue to flood in for Murray following his Wimbledon victory, but we doubt any will be as good as this from one major sporting event to another.
