Qualification

Ryan Moore is exempt to play in Royal St George's

Tied for 12th last year – his best Open finish – after being called into the field on July 1 as replacement for injured former winner Paul Lawrie.

It meant he missed out on a top 10 finish and exemption for this year by only one stroke, then had to wait until the last week of June to qualify for Royal Portrush off the world rankings. Winner of five PGA Tour titles and close to a sixth in the 2016 Tour Championship, losing at the fourth play-off hole to Rory McIlroy. Moore was instantly handed the final wild card for America’s Ryder Cup team and a week later finished his debut by beating Lee Westwood for the win which ended Europe’s hold of the trophy.

One of only five players - Jack Nicklaus, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods and Bryson DeChambeau are the others – who have won the American college title and US Amateur Championship in the same year. For Moore that came in 2004 when he also claimed team and individual honours at the Eisenhower Trophy world championships and captured the US Public Links title for a second time. While still an amateur finished a brilliant joint 13th in the 2005 Masters.
