What Have Former Open Champions Drank Out of the Claret Jug?

In this recent video from the PGA Tour we learn just how thirsty Open Champions are when they celebrate with the Claret Jug.

We know McIlroy might have enjoyed a few shots of jager with his time with the Claret Jug, but how about some of the older winners like Padraig Harrington, and Stewart Cink?

Like a true Irishmen, Harrington said he had a lot of “Guinness and whiskey,” with some moments of champagne and wine.

Mr. Cink took over one of his favorite restaurants in Atlanta and drank Guinness as well.

Cheers to another great year of Open Championship golf and great stories of drinking from the Claret Jug.
