Joined Sam Forgan in surviving both the 18-hole Regional Qualifying and 36-hole Final Qualifying at Prince’s, just across the way from Royal St George’s.

In the first event the 23-year-old took second place on his own a stroke behind Forgan and they then shared the runners-up spot, one behind Australian Deyen Lawson, in Final Qualifying.

It was a nerve-testing affair after Worsdall opened with a superb five-under 67, but a birdie on the 17th hole of his second round meant he could just about afford a closing bogey for a 75.

“Me and my caddy refreshed the app a hundred times to see what the scores were, but it all worked out in the end,” he said.

"It sounds a cliché, but it literally is the stuff that you dream of as a kid and for it to come true is really exciting. The new format of having RQ at the same venue as Final Qualifying made it nice to be able to play the golf course in a competition format only a couple of days before.”

Worsdall was a spectator during the 2011 Open at Sandwich and was in the grandstand at the sixth hole when Tom Watson holed-in-one.
