The Open brightened by Beatles tribute

Monday, July 21, 2014

As The Open Championship teed off yesterday at Hoylake so does the fun and games as Beftfair have come up with a new comedy stunt.

The betting company has planted a giant Octopus on the course, just by the fourth green as spectators and players such as Miguel Angel Jimenez and Justin Rose were met with disbelief. The Betfair Octopus has been placed in a garden by the green in acknowledgement to Liverpool’s most famous exports, The Beatles, with their song Octopus’s Garden.
