The Senior Open Presented by Rolex will be played on the iconic Old Course at St Andrews for the first time in the Championship’s 32-year history in 2018. St Andrews will become the 13th host of Europe’s Senior Major Championship.
In 2017, Bernhard Langer made history by becoming the first golfer in history to win ten Senior Major Championships, as he joined Gary Player and Tom Watson as the only three-time winners of the Senior Claret Jug with his victory at Royal Porthcawl Golf Club in Wales.
The Senior Open was introduced in 1987 at Turnberry in Ayrshire when Neil Coles, the former Chairman of the Board of Directors of the PGA European Tour, won the inaugural title. The 2018 edition promises to be one of the best ever with a litany of Europe and America’s best players descending on St. Andrews. With new arrivals like Paul McGinley looking to bag their first senior major and heroes of the game like Tom Watson attempting to win possibly their last this promises to be a tournament that will delight and enthral golf fans young and old.
