The 152nd Open Championship will be held at Royal Troon, 100 years after the Ayrshire club first hosted golf's oldest major.

It will be the 10th time the Championship is hosted over the Ayrshire links and 100 years on from the first, when England’s Arthur Havers turned out as winner.

The last time Royal Troon welcomed the tournament was in 2016, when Henrik Stenson bettered Phil Mickelson in a tantalising battle on the final day.
