This time the tour stops at the Marriott Forest of Arden, where Darren Clarke will vie for a three-peat.
Clarke successfully defended his title last year by carding a magnificent final-round 65 to overcome a six-shot deficit to Michael Campbell.
Clarke became the first person to win the English Open in back-to-back years since Mark James did so in 1989 and 1990. Coincidentally, James tied Campbell for second place in 2000.
A host of European talent; including Lee Westwood, Colin Montgomerie, Adam Scott and Paul Lawrie will join Clarke.
The jaunt through England has included a pair of surprise winners. Andrew Oldcorn captured his first tour title in six years at the Volvo PGA Championship.
Last week, Frenchman Thomas Levet snapped a three-year winless drought by winning the British Masters is a four-way playoff.
