Gleneagles Country Club to Host America’s only 2013 British Open Qualifier
Public Invited to Attend May 20 Event
On May 20, Gleneagles Country Club will serve as the site of the 2013 International Final Qualifying (IFQ) - America, the only qualifier in the United States that gives players the opportunity to compete in this year’s British Open Championship.
For the fifth consecutive year, the Gleneagles Queen’s Course will play host to some of the best players based on world rankings as they compete over 36 holes in one day for eight qualifying spots to gain entry into golf’s oldest championship. Players making an appearance the last four years include Bubba Watson, Davis Love III, Matt Kuchar, Rickie fowler, Sergio Garcia, Zach Johnson, Rory Sabbatini, Stuart Appleby, Ricky Barnes, and Sean O’Hair. A new course record of 60 was set in 2012 during this event by Harris English. For more information on the event and for a full list of players competing, go to *www.theopen.com.
The IFQ - America event is open to the public and takes place on the Monday after the HP Byron Nelson Championship in Irving and prior to the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial in Fort Worth – allowing many of the top players to compete in the event between PGA Tour tournaments. Tee times begin at 7 a.m. and play concludes at approximately 8 p.m.
The IFQ events held by the R&A, the organization responsible for the world’s golf rules and the organizer of the British Open Championship, were started in 2004 and are held on five continents to give more players from around the world the opportunity to compete in the British Open Championship, one of golf’s four Majors. The IFQ has been held in America since 2004 at such prestigious venues as Congressional Country Club, Oakland Hills Country Club and TPC of Dearborn. The 142nd British Open is July 18-21, 2013, at Muirfield in Gullane, Scotland.
“Gleneagles' member support has been instrumental in the success of this great event and led to the R&A's decision to return to Gleneagles for an unprecedented fifth year in a row,” stated Mickey Wszolek, Gleneagles’ general manager. “We're looking forward to another great field and an exciting day of golf.”
