0

LONDON: The British Open Championship will be held at Royal Birkdale in 2017 and Carnoustie the following year, tournament organizers the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews (R&A), announced Tuesday. Birkdale, close to this year’s open venue of the Royal Liverpool course at Hoylake on England’s north-west coast, last hosted the British Open in 2008 when Ireland’s Padraig Harrington won his second consecutive Claret Jug after taking his first at Scotland’s Carnoustie a year earlier.
