Irish Golfer Shane Lowry expressed his disappointment on the cancellation as he said “I can understand that I will not get a chance to defend my title over here. But there is something much bigger at stake which is a human life so cancellation of these open championships makes you feel sad but at the same time you understand that why it has been canceled in the first place”.
This has been the first time since 1860 that open championships have been canceled. However, Shane stated, “See you in St Georges in 2021”.
The championship was scheduled to happen from July 12 to July 19th. The 149th open will be played at Royal St. George from July 11-18,2021.
