The R&A has confirmed the players that are now exempt into The 151st Open at Royal Liverpool through the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR).

Three players who previously earned places in The 151st Open through qualifying events are now exempt under this category – Kurt Kitayama and Harris English (Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard) and Wyndham Clark (Wells Fargo Championship).

These places have now been awarded to the next non-exempt golfers following a change to this year’s qualifying criteria which states that any golfer earning a qualifying place who then becomes exempt under one or more categories before the closing date of entries on 1 June will result in that place being awarded to the next non-exempt golfer.

Trey Mullinax and Ben Griffin have qualified for The Open through their performances in the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard, as well as Brendon Todd in the Wells Fargo Championship.

This week, the leading three players not already exempt who make the cut in the Memorial Tournament presented by Workday will earn places in The 151st Open.

In the event of a tie for a qualifying place, the player with the higher ranking in the OWGR at the beginning of the week commencing 29 May will be awarded a place in The 151st Open.

The Memorial Tournament presented by Workday is the seventh event in The Open Qualifying Series and will be played from 1-4 June at Muirfield Village.
