Emerged from a five-man play-off for the last of four places on offer in the 36-hole Final Qualifying event at Prince’s in Kent on June 28 after Matthew Southgate, three times a runner-up on the DP World Tour, had missed a five-foot putt on the last green to go through.
The sudden death started at the 10th, a hole Floydd had bogeyed in both rounds, but on his return he hit his approach to 15 feet and made the birdie putt to book a ticket to the Old Course.
“I felt the pressure in the play-off,” he said, “but I’ve learnt from a couple of similar situations in the past that’s helped me and after working with coaches it’s nice to see it pay off. It’s going to be unbelievable. I was thinking about all those fans and I’m thrilled to have done it.”
Floydd went into the qualifier 1,338th on the world rankings and with nearly all of his appearances this season having come on the Alps Tour.
His highest finish as a professional, however, came on the MENA Tour in 2019 when he was runner-up to Robin Williams at the Journey to Jordan 2 tournament.
