The Women's British Open is returning to Turnberry in 2015.

Turnberry, most famous for the ''Duel in the Sun'' in 1977 when Tom Watson beat Jack Nicklaus, last hosted the Women's British Open in 2002. Karrie Webb won on the Ailsa Course that year to become the only woman to win the career ''Super Slam'' on the LPGA Tour with her fifth different major.

The Women's British Open will be played in 2014 at Royal Birkdale, and it's moving up on the calendar. It will be played July 10-13 next year. That's the week before the men's British Open at Royal Liverpool, about 30 miles south of Birkdale.
