The fans wanted to know exactly how many beers the Claret Jug could hold in it. The winner answered their question after testing the capacity during the celebration of his title.

The winner showed his amazing skills on the field by staging one of the most watch-worthy back-nine charges ever seen in a major championship. He won the 150th British Open and received the beautiful Claret Jug that has been given to winners since 1873. He said he was going to find out how many beers fit in the jug after he was asked about it multiple times.

Consumption of beer and other forms of alcohol out of trophies is now a common tradition to celebrate victory in most sports. However, some players still haven’t experienced the fun of drinking out of a trophy since they are still trying to win one.
