Royal Porthcawl - 2014



The Senior Open Championship presented by Rolex

Royal Porthcawl Golf Club
South Wales
July 24-27, 2014

The Senior Open Championship presented by Rolex will become the first Major Championship to be held in Wales when it is hosted by Royal Porthcawl Golf Club, South Wales, from July 24-27, 2014 before returning to Welsh shores on two further occasions between 2015 and 2024, on dates yet to be confirmed.

These announcements follow the successful staging of The 2010 Ryder Cup at The Celtic Manor Resort, City of Newport, where the 12th edition of The Celtic Manor Wales Open was also played in 2011 so continuing the rich tradition of European Tour competition in Wales.

A total of 30 tournaments have been played in Wales on The European Tour International Schedule since the official start of the Tour in 1972, while no fewer than 14 Senior Tour events and eight Challenge Tour events have been hosted by the country.

Colin Montgomerie, who as captain steered Europe to a 14 ½ - 13 ½ win in The 2010 Ryder Cup, is one of several Ryder Cup players who will become eligible to enter The Senior Open Championship presented by Rolex by 2014. The others are Miguel Angel Jiménez, Davis Love III, Ronan Rafferty and Scott Verplank.
