10 players added to Open field
The R&A on Wednesday announced the additions to avoid any confusion going into the final weeks of qualifying at European Tour and PGA Tour events. The players are high enough in the world ranking to secure spots July 17-20 at Royal Liverpool.
There could be as many as two additional spots available to fill the 156-man field. That will be determined by the world ranking published next week.
Four leading players from The Greenbrier Classic and three from the French Open can qualify this week.
