The Open Championship will be played at Royal Troon in 2023, the 100th anniversary of the first time the Scottish links course hosted the tournament.

The R&A, the tournament organizer, announced the venue for the 152nd annual event on Tuesday. It will be the 10th time Royal Troon, located southwest of Glasgow, has been a venue for the Open.

"We are very much looking forward to celebrating another milestone in the cherished history of the Open when we mark the 100th anniversary of the Championship first being played at Royal Troon," Martin Slumbers, chief executive of the R&A, said in a statement.

Royal Troon last hosted the Open in 2016, when Swede Henrik Stenson shot a final-round 63 to finish at 20-under par, three strokes ahead of Phil Mickelson.
