For the first time in more than 60 years, the British Open is headed across the Irish Sea. Delino DeShields Jersey . The R&A announced Monday that golfs oldest championship will return to Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland for the first time since Max Faulkner won in 1951. That was the only time it was held outside Scotland or England since the Open began in 1860. "We have every confidence Royal Portrush will prove to be an excellent venue in every way," R&A chief executive Peter Dawson said. "There is passionate support in Northern Ireland and we expect there will be huge interest." Dawson said it was the "worst-kept secret," although one mystery remains -- the year. To bring the links course up to modern standards of a major championship, the R&A has recommended using the golf architecture firm Mackenzie & Ebert to create new 17th and 18th holes. Royal Portrush club members would have to sign off on the proposal, though that is likely to be a formality. The next available date is 2019. Dawson said it could be "a year or two longer than that." "It has been more than 60 years since the Open was played here, and its been too long," Dawson said. "And were very excited to be coming back." For years, there has been a quiet push to bring the Open back to Portrush and the movement picked up momentum with the success of three players from Northern Ireland. Graeme McDowell won the 2010 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach. Darren Clarke captured the British Open a year later at Royal St. Georges. Rory McIlroy won the U.S. Open in 2011 and then the PGA Championship in 2012. Throw in Padraig Harrington, and Irish golfers won seven of 22 majors during one stretch. What really caught Dawsons attention was when Royal Portrush staged a wildly successful Irish Open in 2012, which attracted some 130,000 fans for the week. And then Martin Ebert suggested the right changes to the links course to make it all work. More than just a golf course, the Open now requires room for such amenities as a television compound and a tented village. Dawson said the R&A would be investing several million pounds (dollars), without giving a more detailed estimate. "No Open venue is immune from the march of time," he said. "They all move and they all have to keep up. This isnt any different from that, except that it hasnt had an Open for a long time." Portrush also has held the Senior British Open six times, and is hosting the British Amateur this week. The British Open this year is being played at Royal Liverpool in Hoylake, which had gone 39 years until it returned to the rotation in 2006 with a popular win by Tiger Woods. Turnberry off the Ayrshire coast in Scotland went 17 years without an Open, despite a history that include the famous "Duel in the Sun" between Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus. That required work on the roads to alleviate traffic. Dawson said the work involved to get Royal Portrush in shape for an Open "is a little bit more." "That perhaps reflects the time gap," he said. "Its over 60 years since the championship has been here. The requirements of a modern championship are very different from what they were then. But its something thats manageable." Carlos Gomez Jersey . The triple gold medallist from the 2010 Paralympics tweeted on Tuesday: "Woke up with a virus yesterday. Timing couldnt be much worse. Not the ideal prep for the . Nomar Mazara Jersey . I kept my eyes focused up on the camera during each approach. I just tried to stay focused on my form, as I didnt know what the ball reaction was. I was quite emotional at the end. I did not actually see any of the shots in the game until I got home and watched the video. http://www.rangersapparelsshop.com/mart ... rsey-c-18/ . Setting United on its way to a 2-0 victory, Rooney sent the ball high from inside the halfway line over goalkeeper Adrian after just seven minutes. "Its just instinct, Ive turned and had a quick look and seen the goalkeeper off his line," Rooney said.Vancouver, BC - The British Columbia Lions have some decisions to make following the loss of quarterback Travis Lulay to a shoulder injury, as they host the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in a West Division showdown at BC Place on Saturday night. Lulay, who missed time last season due to an injury on the same shoulder, will not be returning to the field any time soon which means the road to the postseason just got a little tougher for the Lions who are currently fourth in the highly-competitive West. You can catch all the action starting at 9pm ct/7pm pt on TSN1, TSN3, TSN4 and TSN5. Coverage also begins on TSN Radio 1290 Winnipeg starting at 8pm ct. Despite being held to single digits in the scoring column for the third time this year, the Lions still managed to come out on top last week, thanks in large part to the fact that the team was facing off against the expansion Ottawa RedBlacks who are still trying to find their way in 2014. Lulay completed 18-of-27 passes for 167 yards and was sacked twice in the 7-5 road victory. The signal caller also led the way on the ground with a game-high 50 yards, his longest run of 24 yards alone accounting for more than the RedBlacks produced the entire contest (16 yards). Kicker Paul McCallum.saved the day for BC with a pair of field goals, while Ricky Schmitt chipped in with a 69-yard field goal in the third quarter, accounting for the only points in the second half for either side. According to the depth chart for last weeks game, next in line for the passing responsibilities for the Lions is Kevin Glenn, the original starter this season for BC before the brief return of Lulay. The Illinois State product has thrown for more than 2,100 yards this season, but the former Blue Bomber has more interceptions (11) than touchdowns (nine), which was just part of the reason why he found his spot on the bench once it was determined that Lulay could get back on the field. As for Winnipeg, the last-place team in the West which with a record of 6-5 would be cruising along in first place if it were part of the East Division, it has lost two in a row and four of the last five following a 30-24 setback against Saskatchewan last weekend. Derek Holland Jersey. The Bombers, who coincidentally knocked out quarterback Darian Durant for what could be the remainder of the regular season, followed signal caller Drew Willy who converted 26-of-38 passes for 360 yards and two TDs, but he was also picked off twice and sacked five times. Winnipeg put up 454 yards of total offense, compared to only 303 for the Riders, but the hosts could not get beyond the 13 penalties which cost them 158 yards. Running back Nic Grigsby, who hit the end zone on a 12-yard run in the first quarter, leads the league in rushing with 623 yards in this his rookie season out of Arizona, but he carried the ball just eight times as he amassed 66 net yards. One of the top scoring threats in the league, Grigsby has now posted majors in four consecutive games, five of the last six, and has eight TDs on the ground overall, not to mention one through the air while adding 39 receptions for another 341 yards. Winnipeg, which will host the Lions in the third and final meeting between the squads late next month, won the first matchup of 2014 by a score of 23-6 on the road back on July 25. In that contest, Glenn tossed a pair of interceptions and was sacked five times, all while the Lions were being hit with 14 penalties for a loss of 122 yards in front of the hometown crowd. Kicker Lirim Hajrullahu saved the day for the Blue Bombers as he knocked through all five of his field goal chances and finished with 16 points total for the visitors the first time around this season. While British Columbia saw its four-game win streak in the series come to an end, the Bombers watched their advantage in the series move to 84-75-2 in games played during the regular season and dating back to 1954.
