St Andrews to host 150th Open championship
Well, it is the hoe of golf...
St Andrews is quite rightly holding the 150th-anniversary Open championship. Some of us here at GP think it should never leave the place but that's another story.
It will be the 30th time St Andrews has hosted the greatest golf tournament of them all. July 15-18, 2020, put it in your diary and get yourself up – the GolfPunk Clubhouse will be in full effect for your apres golf needs.
Zach Johnson won last time the Open was held at the links course in 2015 when the American prevailed in a three-man four-hole playoff over Marc Leishman and Louis Oosthuizen to clinch his second major title and first Claret Jug.
The open dudes said: "History will be made once again at the home of golf in 2021 when the 150th Open is played at St Andrews from 11-18 July."
The R&A chief executive, Martin Slumbers added: "The Open holds a very special place in the hearts of golf and sports fans around the world. The Championship enjoys a historic and celebrated relationship with the Old Course in St Andrews and we are excited to be marking the occasion of the 150th Championship at the home of golf in 2021."
Amen to that.
