David Law

Like 1999 Open winner Paul Lawrie, Law hails from Aberdeen and this will be the 31-year-old’s Championship debut thanks to a joint fourth place finish in the Horizon Irish Open on July 3.

Like 1999 Open winner Paul Lawrie, Law hails from Aberdeen and this will be the 31-year-old’s Championship debut thanks to a joint fourth place finish in the Horizon Irish Open on July 3.

Three spots at St Andrews were there for the taking as part of the Open Qualifying Series, but top three Adrian Meronk, Ryan Fox and Thriston Lawrence were already exempt.

Three years ago Law won on only the fifth start of his rookie DP World Tour season, claiming the ISPS Handa Vic Open in dramatic fashion with a birdie-par-eagle fnish to edge out Australians Brad Kennedy and Wade Ormsby by one.

The former Scottish boy champion and twice winner of the Scottish Amateur had claimed his maiden Challenge Tour victory just seven months earlier on home soil at the SSE Scottish Hydro Challenge and went on to graduate to the European Tour.

After sealing his Open spot he said: “I chose not to go to Final Qualifying last week so I could focus on this event and I’m over the moon. I’ve never played a major before so do it at St Andrews for the first time will be unbelievable.”
