Open Qualifying

Any week a professional golfer can qualify for one of the sports four major championships is a big week and this is no exception. With only a matter of days before the Open returns to our screens, controversially on Sky Sports for the first time in its 144 year history, Champions of Golf have a number of professionals at the four qualifying venues all vying for a spot at their 'home' major.

It will no doubt me many years since these professionals will have played 36 holes in a single day but Tuesday 30th June, that's the format and with only three qualification spaces up for grabs at each of the four venues, the guys will have to be straight on their game.

For the more northern professional Glasgow Gailes offers the perfect Open test. Scott Henry and Gareth Wright will take part in qualifying at this venue in a bid to get a spot at the Championship on the 12th July.

At the opposite end of the geographical spectrum, Paul Broadhurst will play at Royal Cinque Ports as he bids to make a return to the Open, the first time since missing the cut at his last appearance in 2012. Jason Palmer was also meant to be competing with Paul, however due to medical advice having withdrawn from the BMW International Open last week, Jason has been told to rest for between 4-6 weeks.

The final venue hosting Champions of Golf professionals is Hillside Golf Club. Competing here are Scott Arnold from Australia and Ryder Cup player Peter Baker.

You can follow the scoring from all of these venues and the fourth host course, Woburm, via the Open website online at http://www.theopen.com/Qualification.

Good luck to everyone!
