MISSING LINKS: MasterCard, already a corporate partner with the PGA and European tours, is becoming a patron sponsor of the British Open. MasterCard and the Open Championship made the announcement today. MasterCard joins Doosan, HSBC, Mercedes-Benz, Nikon and Rolex as the British Open’s patron sponsors.
