St. Andrews to host 2021 British Open
The British Open is returning to the home of golf in 2021. The Old Course in St. Andrews, Scotland will host the 150th anniversary of the world’s oldest major to mark “a true celebration of golf ’s original championship and its historic ties to St. Andrews,” the R&A said. It will be the 30th time the Open Championship is played on the Old Course, and the first since 2015 when Zach Johnson lifted the Claret Jug after a threeway playoff. It ends the cycle of St. Andrews staging the Open every five years since 1990. It first hosted the event in 1873.
