Royal Aberdeen AAM Scottish Open

Round 4

Kristoffer Broberg, Tyrrell Hatton and Scott Jamieson qualified for the 143rd Open Championship today after the final round of the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open at Royal Aberdeen.

Broberg delivered his best performance to date on the European Tour, finishing runner-up to winner Justin Rose who has already secured his place in The Open. The 27-year-old Swede closed out the tournament two shots behind Rose on 14-under-par and will now make his first appearance in a Major Championship when The Open gets under way on Thursday.

“I’ve dreamt about this moment and I will definitely be going to The Open with a smile on my face,” said Broberg, who has won four times on the Challenge Tour. “I’m very happy to be runner-up to Justin Rose and I think it’s going to be very important for my game moving forward.”

England’s Tyrrell Hatton was delighted to confirm his place in The Open after narrowly missing out on qualifying earlier this year at the Open Qualifying Series — Joburg Open in February. The 23-year-old finished tied runner-up in Johannesburg but missed out on the qualifying place based on his position in the Official World Golf Ranking. The Buckinghamshire native finished tied fourth at ten-under-par in Scotland to secure his place in The Open at the eleventh hour.

“Missing out at Joburg was obviously difficult so getting in to The Open here last minute is really good. It will be my third Open and I’ll have lots of family there to watch me so I’m over the moon,” said Hatton, who played in The Open in 2010 at St Andrews and last year at Muirfield.

Jamieson had the support of the home crowd in Scotland in his bid to make a third Open Championship appearance and finished with a seven-under-par 64 today. The 30-year-old Glaswegian, who has one European Tour victory to his name, finished tied eighth on nine-under-par at his national Open.

“I’m delighted to qualify, I knew I had a chance today and I got off to a perfect start. I qualified for The Open at this event in 2011 as well so obviously I like leaving it to the last minute,” said Jamieson, who also played at Muirfield in 2013.

“My family will be coming down to The Open with me. Zoe, my daughter, will be six months next week so it will be a nice way to celebrate.”

The Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open is part of the Open Qualifying Series which gives players from the world’s leading Tours a chance to qualify for The Open Championship at Royal Liverpool from 17-20 July.

The final qualifier for The Open Championship is Brian Harman who won the John Deere Classic.

Round Three

Kristoffer Broberg of Sweden, Tyrell Hatton of England and Scotland’s Craig Lee are in position to qualify for The Open Championship after three rounds at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open at Royal Aberdeen.

Broberg continued his steady play on Saturday by posting a three-under-par 68 to sit in third place behind co-leaders Justin Rose and Marc Warren who have already secured their places at The Open. The Stockholm native is at nine-under-par overall two shots ahead of Hatton who is currently in fourth place at seven-under-par. Home hope Lee is in fifth place at six-under-par alongside Argentina’s Ricardo Gonzalez, but Lee holds the qualifying place based on his higher position in the Official World Golf Ranking.

  • Broberg is a four-time Challenge Tour winner and is on track to make his first Major Championship appearance at Royal Liverpool next week.
  • Hatton has played in two Open Championships in 2010 at St Andrews and 2013 at Muirfield. He narrowly missed out on securing a place at Hoylake at the 2013 Joburg Open where he finished tied second.
  • Lee finished as runner-up at the 2013 Omega European Masters in a play-off with Thomas Bjorn and is looking to make his first appearance at The Open.
