The Women’s British Open is set to go ahead in August behind closed doors, event organisers announced on Tuesday.

The championship, at Royal Troon in Scotland from August 20 to 23, will now be the first women’s major of the year following the cancellation of the Evian Championship in France.

Strict health and safety protocols will be followed, including the creation of a bio-secure zone. All personnel will also need to return a negative COVID-19 test.
