The field for The 151st Open is now complete.

David Lingmerth, Byeong Hun An and Nicolai Højgaard claimed the final three places for Royal Liverpool courtesy of their performances at the Genesis Scottish Open, the final event in The Open Qualifying Series.

Lingemerth and An finished in a tie for third place with the already-exempt Scottie Scheffler on ten-under-par.

Højgaard finished a shot further back, tied with four others on nine-under-par.

An of South Korea has competed in The Open on eight occasions, the last time at The 149th Open at Royal St George’s where he finished tied 26th, matching his best result in the Championship.

A first Open appearance in seven years for David Lingmerth

Sweden’s Lingmerth returns to The Open for the first time since 2016 where he missed the cut at Royal Troon.

Højgaard joins his twin brother Rasmus in the field. They are second set of brothers to be competing in The 151st Open with Matt and Alex Fitzpatrick also set to tee off at Hoylake.

The Genesis Scottish Open was won by Rory McIlroy, the Champion Golfer of the Year in 2014.

Practice is already under way at Hoylake, with The Open set to start on Thursday 20 July.
