The R&A has announced that Royal Liverpool as the host venue for the 2022 (British) Open Championship.
Located in Hoylake, England, the historic course has hosted golf’s oldest major championship 12 previous times, most recently in 2014 when Rory McIlroy edged Sergio Garcia and Rickie Fowler to claim major title No. 3.
It also hosted the 2006 Open when Tiger Woods captured his third Claret Jug.
“The Open shares a strong affinity with England’s Golf Coast and following the success of the Championship at Royal Birkdale two years ago we know that there will be tremendous excitement among golf fans at its return to Royal Liverpool,” said Martin Slumbers, chief executive of the R&A.
“Its famous links has a cherished history and has produced a revered group of Champion Golfers, including Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy most recently.”
This year’s Open Championship will be contested in Northern Ireland at Royal Portrush, with Royal St George (England) hosting the 2021 edition, and St. Andrew’s in Scotland, home to the R&A, hosting the 150th edition of the Open Championship (2021).
