Registration notes: This distinctive tartan has been designed to commemorate one of the most iconic figures in golf; Tom Morris from St Andrews. The tartan has been designed to recognise his legacy, which continues to inspire and guide the development of the golf industry today. The name Morris does not have its own historical clan tartan but is associated with the name of Buchanan. Chosen as the starting point for the design, the Buchanan Tartan helps create a rich historical background with a strong relevance to Scotland. A range of marl grey tones form the base of the tartan, and colours reflecting Scotland’s scenic countryside have been added to compliment and add depth to the design. The purple tone represents the beautiful flowering heather that is scattered across the Scottish landscape and the St Andrews Links. Tom Morris won four Open Championships and his success was emulated by his son, Tommy Morris, who won a further four. These important victories have been commemorated within the design and can be seen most prominently as the four heather overchecks surrounded by four strong squares of midnight blue.
