The British Senior Open will return to the magnificent Turnberry in 2012, it has been announced.
Legends of the game will don their golf clothing to compete at the iconic Alisa Course in Scotland.
The field, which will consist of players aged 50 and over, is likely to include Tom Watson, who almost became the oldest ever winner of the Claret Jug when he took Stewart Cink to a play-off in the 2009 Open Championship.
It will be the seventh time the Senior Open has been hosted at Turnberry, making it the most frequently used venue for the tournament.
"The Ailsa Course has provided some of golf's most memorable moments over the years and, hopefully, we will once again experience the magnificent support of the Scottish golf fans, just as we did the last time The Senior Open Championship visited the Ayrshire coast in 2008 when we had record crowds at Royal Trogon," said David Hill, the R&A's director of championships.
