Royal Birkdale & Carnoustie to host 2017 & 2018 Opens

July 2, 2014

The British Open will return to Royal Birkdale in 2017 and to Carnoustie in 2018.

Both have been part of the rotation for more than 60 years. The announcement Tuesday was more about when they next would stage golf's oldest championship.

The Open will be at Royal Liverpool this year, followed by St. Andrews in 2015 and Royal Troon in 2016.

Padraig Harrington won the claret jug the previous time it was held at Royal Birkdale and Carnoustie. He defeated Sergio Garcia in a playoff at Carnoustie in 2007, and a year later held off Greg Norman to win at Royal Birkdale.

It will be the 10th time The Open has gone to Royal Birkdale, and the eighth time at Carnoustie, reputed to be the toughest of the links courses.
