Muirfield to stage The Open in 2013- 5 May 2009 00:00:00
Tournament organiser The Royal and Ancient has revealed that Muirfield will be the venue for golf’s Open Championship in 2013.
South Africa's Ernie Els won The Open the last time the Scottish venue hosted the tournament in 2002, triumphing after a four-man, four-hole play-off.
‘We are delighted that The Open is returning to Muirfield,’ said R&A director of
championships David Hill.
‘It is an outstanding championship course that consistently produces a very worthy champion.
‘For any club to host the Open it requires a great deal of work. We would like to thank The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers for its continued cooperation, which has enabled the Championship to come back to this fine venue for a 16th time.’
