Gold Yeller is at it again.

Jared Jacobs, known on his Instagram and Twitter page has Gold Yeller, gained notority this past winter when he recreated Villanova's game-winning shot against North Carolina in the 2015 NCAA basketball championship. Since then, he has teamed up with various partners to recreate sports moments ranging from college football to hockey.

His latest endevor has been recreating some of the Open Championship's iconic moments. Heading into this weekend's 146th rendition of The British Open, Jacobs teamed with Golf Channel to recreate Jack Nicklaus raising the Claret Jug in the 99th Open Championship at St. Andrews

But that was just the start of it.

Remember the 1984 Open Championship from St. Andrews? The late great Seve Ballesteros won his first of two Open Championships in the 80s.

Or how about when a 17-year-old amateur named Justin Rose holed out from the rough at the 1998 Open Championship?

Will Henrik Stenson repeat his 2016 victory at Royal Birkdale this year? Well, if he doesn't, he'll always have his moment at Royal Troon immortalized... in Legos.

What new memorable moments will be made this weekend from Royal Birkdale? You can be sure Gold Yeller will be watching for his next project.
