Keith Mitchell and Wyndham Clark have secured their places in The 150th Open at St Andrews after qualifying through the RBC Canadian Open.
Played at St George’s Golf and Country Club in Toronto, the RBC Canadian Open was the seventh event in The Open Qualifying Series, which gives golfers around the world opportunities to book their place for the historic occasion at St Andrews from 10-17 July.
The PGA TOUR event was won by 2014 Champion Golfer Rory McIlroy, who successfully defended the title he first lifted at Hamilton Golf and Country Club in 2019 after posting a 19-under-par total of 261. He was exempt for The Open along with runner-up Tony Finau, two-time PGA champion Justin Thomas, Justin Rose, Sam Burns and home favourite Corey Connors.  
Mitchell and Clark finished in a tie for seventh place on a ten-under-par total of 270 along with the already exempt Chris Kirk.
Mitchell, 30, will make his third appearance in The Open after securing his place through The Open Qualifying Series for the third time in a row, having qualified at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in 2019 and 2020.  

Meanwhile, Clark, 28, who led the event after the first round, will make his debut appearance in The Open. His best finish on the PGA TOUR came at the 2020 Bermuda Championship when he lost in a play-off to Brian Gay.
