Golfers aiming to secure a place in The 150th Open at St Andrews will have an even better opportunity to secure their place through Final Qualifying for the historic Championship being played from 10-17 July.
The number of places available at Final Qualifying has been increased from a minimum of 12 to 16, meaning that four golfers will now earn a place in golf’s original championship at each of the events being held at Fairmont St Andrews, Hollinwell, Prince’s and St Annes Old Links on Tuesday, 28 June.
