Open qualifying places available at Dubai Duty Free Irish Open


It's been confirmed that qualifying places for The Open will be for grabs at next month's Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.

Three places for the final major of the season will be on the line when Kilkenny's Mount Juliet stages the Irish Open between July 1st and 4th.

The R&A have made the decision to make additional places available at three upcoming tournaments due to the impact of COVID-19 travel restrictions.

“We know that there are a number of golfers who have entered Final Qualifying who are planning to travel separately to England and then onto Ireland, Czech Republic or France to play in the scheduled tour events shortly after," Johnnie Cole-Hamilton, Executive Director of Championships at The R&A, said.

“Having considered the existing international travel measures carefully, including contact tracing protocols, we believe that there is a greater risk that, when travelling by plane, players may have to self-isolate if they are identified as a close contact of a fellow passenger testing positive for COVID-19.

“With that in mind, we have agreed a solution with the European Tour that significantly reduces the possibility of our events being jeopardised in any way by the risks associated with international air travel and provides players with alternative opportunities to qualify for The Open through the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, Kaskada Golf Challenge and Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge.”
