The British Open is returning to Royal Troon in 2023 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first Open on the western Scottish links and to stoke memories of Henrik Stenson's magnificent duel he won against Phil Mickelson.

Some 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the south, President Donald Trump's course at Turnberry will have to wait.

The R&A announced the addition to the Open schedule on Tuesday. That extends a rotation of Royal St. George's in England this year; St. Andrews next year for the 150th edition of golf's oldest championship; Royal Liverpool in England in 2022; and then the return to Ayrshire coast for Royal Troon for the 10th time.
