Short History of The Open 

The Open is the oldest of the four men’s major golf championships – The Masters, The US Open, The Open and The PGA Championship. It started in 1860 at the Prestwick Golf Club in Scotland and the first tournament was won by Willie Park, Sr. The Open has been held every year since its inception with the exceptions of 1871 (because there was no award for the winner), between 1915 and 1919 (WWI), between 1940-1945 (WWII) and in 2020 due to the pandemic.

Who Will Be Playing in The Open?

The championship event is open to both professional and amateur golfers, but players must qualify for a chance to win the Claret Jug. There are three ways players can qualify: through an exemption, through The Open Qualifying Series (OQS) or by competing in local qualifying. So far, 156 players have qualified for the 2024 Open, with more expected.
