The Opening Ceremony was watched by millions across the globe and has been hailed as the finest Opening Ceremony ever seen either in Europe or in the United States.

The concept, designed by the late Rupert Murray, was implemented by Susie Sheil and her team with unparalleled skill and patience. Not only did she have to manage over 400 performers but also massage the egos of the world’s finest golfers – no mean feat! 

The prestigious international competition worked seamlessly, in no small part due to Susie’s efficient and comprehensive management.
