2020 Open Golf Championship Canceled
You can add the 149th British Open golf championship to the list of sporting events canceled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Royal and Ancient announced on Monday.
Golf's final major of the year was supposed to be played this July at Royal St. George's in England. The 2021 Open will be played next year at the same place with the 2022 Open (the 150th Open) at the Old Course at St. Andrews in Scotland. The 2022 Open, set for Royal Liverpool, will be moved to a date yet to be determined.
This is the first time since 1945 that the British Open won't be played. Ireland's Shane Lowry is the defending champion, winning the Claret Jug (pictured above) last year at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland.
