The Open Qualifying Series USA

The 2020 Arnold Palmer Invitational saw Danny Lee, Joel Dahmen and Keith Mitchell qualify for The 149th Open Royal St George's. The tournament was won by Tyrrell Hatton. 

The tournament had almost major like conditions as the field battled round the home of Arnold Palmer, with Tyrrell Hatton eventual claiming victory.

The Open Qualifying Series yet again provided an enthralling sub plot, as every dropped shot or birdie made seemed to change the equation of who would grab a spot at Royal St George's in the summer.

All three qualifiers finished in a tie for fifth place alongside 2014 Champion Golfer Rory McIlroy, who was already exempt, on an even par total of 288 to secure their places in golf’s original Championship.
 
Lee will make his return to The Open for the first time since 2016 when the Championship was played at Royal Troon. Despite a final round 75, the 2015 Greenbrier Classic champion will tee it up with the world’s best golfers at Royal St George’s after securing the first qualifying spot courtesy of his higher position in the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR).
 
Dahmen, who made his debut in The Open at Royal Portrush last year, claimed the second qualifying spot ahead of Mitchell thanks to his higher position in OWGR after closing with a one-under-par 71 during today’s final round. The American sunk a crucial birdie putt from over 45 feet on the 16th hole to book his place in the field at Royal St George’s.
 
It was a case of déjà vu for Mitchell who qualified through the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard for the second year running. The 28-year-old clinched the final qualifying place in dramatic fashion after rolling in a 12 foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to also sign for a one-under-par 71.
 
Despite occupying the qualifying places for much of the final round, there was disappointment for Harris English and Sung Kang, who both dropped vital shots to slip out of contention and finish on a one-over-par total of 289 alongside Collin Morikawa.
