Panmure will host Open qualifying event

The Angus course has been confirmed as a host venue, one of 13, to hold a regional qualifying event for the major championship on Monday, June 20.

Those finding themselves at the top end of the leaderboard at the close of play will then advance to final qualifying as they bid for a place at The Open.

Golfers aspiring to qualify for the historic running of the tournament, being played at St Andrews this summer, can now submit their entries.

A minimum of 12 places are available in golf’s original championship through qualifying.

Approximately 1,350 golfers are expected to compete across the 13 regional qualifying events with a combined starting field of 288 players then competing in final qualifying events taking place at Fairmont St Andrews, Hollinwell, Prince’s and St Annes Old Links on Tuesday, June 28.

Those golfers wanting to play in regional and final qualifying can view the entry criteria and submit an entry form via TheOpen.com.

Johnnie Cole-Hamilton, executive director – championships at The R&A, said: “The drama and excitement of our qualifying events is always very special and this year will be no different with places in The 150th Open being the reward for the leading golfers. We look forward to seeing who emerges among the tour players, club professionals and leading amateurs to book their place in this historic playing of the championship at St Andrews.”
