    Did you know?

Will make his fifth successive Open appearance after winning the Japan Open in October by four strokes from Yuta Ikeda and with it moving back into the world’s top 100.

It was the South African’s sixth victory on the circuit where he was runner-up on the money list in 2018 and 2019, both times being denied top spot by Shugo Imahira. Another victory came in March at the Steyn City Championship co-sanctioned by the DP World and Sunshine Tours and enabled him to finish No. 1 on his home circuit's Order of Merit.

Norris was the runner-up at the 2018 Japan Open - Yuki Inamori grabbed the Royal Portrush spot on offer there - after playing at Carnoustie earlier that season thanks to a joint third place at the Joburg Open, part of The Open Qualifying Series, in his home city.

His first Japan Tour success was the 2016 Myanmar Open, co-sanctioned with the Asian circuit, and in 2017 a closing 64 saw him storm to a four-stroke victory in the Tour Championship, which took him to second on the money list on the very day the top two received Open exemptions. His best world ranking to date is 54th.
