British Open

The 150th British Open

Golf has been a crucial sport played in the UK and Ireland since the 19th century. The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews is one of the world's most famous clubs, dating back to 1860. The Open Championship, also called The Open or The British Open, is an annual golf tournament conducted by The R&A and sanctioned by the United States Golf Association (USGA). It is considered one of the four major championships in professional golf, along with the Masters' Tournament, U.S. Open, and the PGA Championship.

In 2018, The Royal and Ancient Golf Club, St Andrews, hosted one of its recent best Open Championship. From July 2018, the event was held at Royal and Ancient Golf Club, St Andrews. The tournament was played on the Old Course at St Andrew's, and it was the first time that this course hosted a major championship since winning a vote to host the 2010 Ryder Cup.

The first Open Championship was contested in 1860, and it was won by Willie Park Sr., who beat Tom Morris Jr., son of Old Tom Morris, who had won 3 previous Opens in 1868-69-70, respectively. Although Tom Morris Sr. did not win any Opens himself, he set up many great courses, such as Prestwick Golf Club and Drumochter Golf Links, which are still used today by professionals and amateurs.

In addition to hosting major tournaments such as The Open Championship and Walker Cup, Royal Portrush is recognized as one of the most challenging courses on the European Tour, with a par of 72 sets alongside some of the most beautiful linksland anywhere in Europe.

 

The 150th Open at St Andrew's is just to kick off on 10 July to 17 July 2022.
