The R&A has decided to cancel The Open in 2020 due to the current Covid-19 pandemic. The Championship will next be played at Royal St George’s in 2021. This is the first time since the Second World War that golf’s original Championship, first played in 1860, has been cancelled .
In terms of the current four majors , the first to win all four in a single year was Don Budge, who completed the feat in 1938. To date, 17 players have completed a Grand Slam , though only six in the most prestigious singles titles. Only Stefan Edberg has completed the Grand Slam in a Junior discipline.
