Info_Panel_bg

The Open Qualifying Series for The 149th Open spans eight events in six countries across five continents, with 25 places available in the field for Royal St George's.

 

Thirteen of these spots were secured at the Emirates Australian Open, the South African Open hosted by the City of Johannesburg, the SMBC Singapore Open and the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard.

 

A further 12 places in The 149th Open were then claimed at four Final Qualifying events on Tuesday 29 June, with three golfers progressing at Hollinwell, Prince's, St Annes Old Links and West Lancashire after 36 holes of stroke play at each venue.

 

The same four courses also hosted Regional Qualifying on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 June. Eight 18-hole Regional Qualifiers were held across the two days, with the successful players joining those who were already exempt for Final Qualifying.

 

As golf fans count down to The Open returning to Royal St George's, where Darren Clarke was victorious in 2011, The Open Qualifying Series provides the opportunity for players to realise their dream of playing in golf's original Championship.
