The R&A has confirmed the Open will be played at Royal Liverpool in 2023 and at Royal Troon in 2024.

The Championships have been rescheduled following the cancellation of The 149th Open at Royal St George’s this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Shane Lowry will defend his 2019 Open title at the famous Kent links in July 2021.

Martin Slumbers, Chief Executive of The R&A, said: "We have been working closely with Royal Liverpool and Royal Troon and the relevant local agencies to reschedule the Championships.

"We are grateful to everyone involved at the clubs and at our partner organisations for supporting our plans and showing flexibility to adapt their own schedules.

"We can now look forward to seeing the world’s best players competing at these outstanding links courses in 2023 and 2024."

The last time the Open was staged in Royal Liverpool was in 2014 when Rory McIlroy led from day one to lift the Claret Jug.

The Open will return to Royal Troon for the 10th time following Henrik Stenson’s memorable final-round duel with Phil Mickelson before claiming victory in 2016.

Dates for The Open:

The 149th Open will be played at Royal St George’s from 11-18 July 2021

The 150th Open will be played at St Andrews from 10-17 July 2022

The 151st Open will be played at Royal Liverpool from 16-23 July 2023

The 152nd Open will be played at Royal Troon 14-21 July 2024
