Marcus Armitage
Booked a return to the Championship thanks to a closing 15-foot birdie putt at the 2020 South African Open. With three places at Royal St George’s on offer as part of The Open Qualifying Series, Armitage came to the last tied for third with Jaco Ahlers and Jack Senior and would have missed out with a par because of his world ranking at the time of 1,398th.

Booked a return to the Championship thanks to a closing 15-foot birdie putt at the 2020 South African Open. With three places at Royal St George’s on offer as part of The Open Qualifying Series, Armitage came to the last tied for third with Jaco Ahlers and Jack Senior and would have missed out with a par because of his world ranking at the time of 1,398th.

He went on to play at The 149th Open as a European Tour winner after capturing the Porsche European Open in June 2021. That success took him to a career-high ranking of 121st and also led to a U.S. Open debut.

His Open debut at Carnoustie in 2018 came after he shared second spot with Senior in the Final Qualifying competition at St Annes Old Links. He then dislocated his shoulder indoor sky-diving – it was a birthday present from his fiancée - but played in The Open less than two weeks later despite being told it might take months to heal.

After three wins on the EuroPro Tour he also tasted success on the Challenge Tour and made headlines at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic after he was photographed asking Tiger Woods for an autograph on the driving range.
