The Open Qualifying Series Australia

The Emirates Australian Open at The Australian in Sydney, provides the first opportunity for players to book their place at Royal St George's through The Open Qualifying Series 2020.

The Emirates Australian Open is Australia’s most prestigious golf championship with a rich, century-old history that draws the world’s best players to vie for the Stonehaven Cup. It is the first event of The Open Qualifying Series with three places in The 149th Open at Royal St George's on offer.

Last year's winner Abraham Ancer returns to the field and is already exempt for Royal St George's through his 2019 FedEx Cup ranking. Adam Scott who went so close to claiming the Claret Jug in 2012 also features, as does 2010 Champion Golfer Louis Oosthuizen and two-time winner Ernie Els.

Since the first Australian Open in 1904, the championship has evolved from an event of limited local standing to a stage for many of golf’s greatest players to battle. The names engraved on the trophy are synonymous with Major Championship history and include Peter Thomson, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Gene Sarazen, Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson, Greg Norman, Adam Scott, Rory McIlroy and 2017 Champion Golfer of the Year Jordan Spieth.
