A revised format will be used in Regional and Final Qualifying for The 149th Open at Royal St George’s due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Regional and Final Qualifying will now be played at Hollinwell (home of Notts), Prince’s, St Annes Old Links and West Lancashire so that the measures required by the UK government guidance in relation to staging events and international travel are consistent between venues.

Golfers entering Regional Qualifying will compete over 18 holes of stroke play at one of the four venues on Saturday 26 or Sunday 27 June. Successful qualifiers will then progress to Final Qualifying at the same venue on Tuesday 29 June and contend for a place in golf’s original championship over 36 holes of stroke play.
