The Open Championship 2020

Dates: 16-19 July 2020
Venue: Royal St George’s Golf Club
TV Coverage: Live on Sky Sports Thursday – Sunday – Highlights on BBC

The 149th playing of The Open Championship will be played at Royal St George’s in Sandwich, Kent.

It is the first time since Darren Clark’s memorable victory in 2011 that The Open has returned to Royal St George’s. This will be the 15th time the Championship will be played here.

Former World Number One Dustin Johnson was tied second in 2011, alongside fellow American Phil Mickelson.

Mickelson had four bogeys on the back nine, as Johnson double bogeyed 14 and would bogey the last as Clarke won by three shots.

Shane Lowry produced a career-best performance to take the Claret Jug in his homeland in last year’s tournament.

The Irishman’s win propelled him into the top 20 of the World Rankings.

The popular Rickie Fowler went well here in 2011 as a 22-year-old, finishing tied 5th at level par.

Fowler is still in pursuit of his first major title, many believe the Links style courses favour the Californian, having played well here before he should go close.
