The Open: 2020 Championship to be held at Royal St George's

Henrik Stenson won the 2016 Open Championship, which was held at Royal Troon

The 2020 Open Championship will be staged at Royal St George's.

The Kent club has hosted The Open 14 times, most recently in 2011 when Darren Clarke won the event for the first time.

The club also voted to admit female members for the first time in its history in March 2015.

"It is a thrilling prospect to see the greatest players competing on one of the world's finest links courses," R&A chief executive Martin Slumbers said.

The 149th Open will be played from 16-19 July 2020.
