Royal Liverpool to host oldest major in 2022

ROYAL LIVERPOOL (Hoylake) has been announced as the host venue for the 151st Open in 2022.

The occasion will mark the 13th time that golf’s original championship has been played over the famous links. The Open was last played at Hoylake in 2014 when Rory McIlroy completed a famous wire-to-wire victory to become the third golfer from Northern Ireland to win the championship.

More than 230,000 fans turned out to watch Tiger Woods lift the Claret Jug for the third time in his celebrated career at Hoylake in 2006, which was a record attendance for a championship held outside of St Andrews until the total was surpassed at Royal Birkdale in 2017.

Martin Slumbers, chief executive of the R&A, said: “The Open has 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 the prospect of its return to Royal Liverpool.”
