Strong finishes by Ben Griffin and Maverick McNealy at the RBC Canadian Open sealed their places at Royal Troon in July.

American Griffin [above] posted a final-round 65 to finish on 15-under-par at Hamilton Golf & Country Club, enough for his first runner-up finish of the season, just one stroke behind maiden PGA TOUR victor Robert MacIntyre.

Compatriot McNealy also signed for a five-under final round which secured a T7 finish, alongside home favourite Mackenzie Hughes – who has also booked his spot at The Open – and the already-exempt Ryan Fox.

The RBC Canadian Open was the sixth event on The Open Qualifying Series, where the top three players not already exempt would clinch a place at golf’s original major.

It will be Griffin’s second successive appearance at The Open following his debut at Royal Liverpool last year. 

The next event on The Open Qualifying Series is the Memorial Tournament presented by Workday, which takes place at Muirfield Village, Ohio between 6-9 June.
