Casey and Leonard sign in at Auchterlonies on Monday

One of St Andrews’ oldest golf shops, Auchterlonies, which is located just a lob wedge from the Old Course’s 18th green, will be hosting two stars of the modern game next week, when former Open Champion Justin Leonard and world number 9 golfer, Paul Casey, pop into the legendary high street golf retailers on Monday, July 12.
Casey and Leonard, both of whom are part of Nike’s Golf stable of stars in the field for the 150th anniversary of the Open Championship, which tees off on July 15, will be at the iconic shop at 5.30pm to take part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the official opening of a new in-store Nike Golf installation.
Auchterlonies has previously stocked Nike’s golf products, but the new store-within-a-store concept will make it much easier for customers to find what they’re looking for from Nike’s award-winning head-to-toe range of equipment, as well providing a stylish addition to one of the Home of Golf’s most popular golf shops, which has been a feature of St Andrews since the company was founded by the Auchterlonie family back in 1895.
Casey, who is currently ranked ninth in the world, and former American Ryder Cup star Leonard, who claimed the Claret Jug at Royal Troon in 1997, will be on hand to sign autographs and chat to fans as they prepare to take on the Old Course in one of the most eagerly-anticipated Open Championships in recent history.
Golfers looking to catch these two stars, as well as get a chance to cast their eyes over the latest range of technologically-superior products on Nike Golf’s new in-store display, including the new VR range of woods, irons, wedges and the award winning Method putter, should make sure they get to Auchterlonies early to avoid disappointment.
Auchterlonies is located on the corner of Golf Place, diagonally opposite the Royal and Ancient clubhouse.
