Carnoustie first hosted the Open in 1931, and champions crowned there include Tommy Armour, Henry Cotton, Ben Hogan, Gary Player and Tom Watson, before Paul Lawrie and Padraig Harrington won the title after play-offs in 1999 and 2007. Indeed, Gary Player and Tom Watson are due to return to the scene of their great triumphs in 2010, when the Senior Open Championship is played at Carnoustie Links. This is the first time, since its inception in 1987, that the Senior Open will be held at the famous Angus links course.
David Hill, Director of Championships for The R&A, said: "For many years we have enjoyed a very strong relationship with Carnoustie, the Open Championship venue in 1999 and 2007. We are thrilled that we will be taking the Senior Open Championship to this excellent venue in 2010."
