For the first time since World War II… “The Open” AKA The British Open has been canceled.
Scheduled to begin on July 16, The Open is fourth in the annual major rotation.
It is with a heavy heart that we have to cancel The Open for the first time since WWII. We appreciate that this will be disappointing for a great many people but we have to act responsibly during this pandemic and it is the right thing to do.— The Open (@TheOpen) April 6, 2020
