Masters 2015: Green Jacket origins 'start in Liverpool'

BBC North West Tonight's Stuart Pollitt travels to the Royal Liverpool Golf Club in Hoylake to discover how the famous Green Jacket awarded to the Masters winner can be traced back to the club.

American golfer Bobby Jones, who founded the Masters in 1934, won the Open in 1930 at Hoylake and was awarded a red coat from Kenneth Stoker.

It is then understood he took the idea of being awarded a jacket for victory with him when he set up the tournament in Augusta.
