St. Andrews named 2015 Open Championship site

Jonathan Wall

You knew the R&A couldn't stay away for very long. After hosting the Open Championship in 2010, the R&A announced on Tuesday that St. Andrews would be hosting golf's oldest major championship once again in 2015.

It will mark the 29th time in the tournament's history that the Home of Golf has been the site of the Open. While the announcement is still a big deal, St. Andrews has hosted the event every five years since 1990, so the decision wasn't that big of a surprise.

If you've never been over to St. Andrews before to see the course and the town, well, this could be a great opportunity to visit. I hate to sound like a travel agent, but every golfer should really consider making the trip just once in their life.

And who knows, if you show up for the 2015 Open, there's a good chance you'll get to see a 38-year-old Tiger Woods tee it up. Whether he produces a 2000 or 2005 Open Championship performance remains to be seen.
