Relive some of the Open Championship's iconic moments through Legos
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.
