John Daly’s 1995 British Open replica Claret Jug is up for auction


You can own John Daly's replica Claret Jug from winning the 1995 British Open at St. Andrews.

If you'll recall, Daly beat Costantino Rocca in a four-hole playoff for the title on the Old Course 21 years ago. When Daly won his second major, he was given the original Claret Jug for a one-year period. However, when his year as Champion Golfer of the Year ended, he didn't have his own trophy to commemorate his victory.


Years later, the R&A finally came to a consistent policy, allowing Open winners to purchase 90-percent-size replicas of the Claret Jug. Daly purchased one. Now, Green Jacket Auctions has bought the trophy from Daly, and they're offering it in their current wave of lots. The trophy, which measures just over a foot tall, is up for auction until 8 p.m. Eastern on April 9, the Saturday night of the Masters.

Among the other items up for auction is the original Augusta National Golf Club entrance sign from 1960. The 30-inch by 36-inch sign was long ago discarded by the home of the Masters in lieu of a new one, but an Augusta resident held on to the sign. That item is likely to fetch at least $20,000.
