Royal Liverpool will staged The Open Championship for a 13th time in 2022 after being announced as the host venue.

The Hoylake links of the Royal Liverpool Golf Club last staged the Open in 2014 when Rory McIlroy lifted the Claret Jug and will take over the baton once again in 2022.

The 2022 event will be the 151st Open Championship and R&A chief executive Martin Slumbers said: “We know that there will be tremendous excitement among golf fans at the prospect of its return to Royal Liverpool.

“Its famous links has a cherished history and has produced a revered group of champion golfers, including Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy most recently.

“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.

“Its famous links has a cherished history and has produced a revered group of Champion Golfers, including Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy most recently. It will be fascinating to see who will emerge from the world-class field to lift the Claret Jug in 2022.”

Tiger Woods is another to have won the Claret Jug at Royal Liverpool, which staged the first of its previous 12 Opens back in 1897, having triumphed in the 2006 Open Championship.

Royal Liverpool will follow the 2019 host Royal Portrush, which stages the Open for only the second time, Royal St George’s in 2020 and St Andrews in 2021.
