Portrush to host 2019 Open Championship

Royal Portrush will be confirmed as the venue for the 2019 Open Championship and the event will be staged at the Northern Ireland course on two further occasions over the next 40 years.

The organisers of the event, the Royal & Ancient, will be joined by Northern Ireland's 2011 Open champion Darren Clarke for the announcement.

It was revealed in June 2014 that the golf major would return to the Portrush course for the first time since 1951.
