Dunne qualifies for Open


Paul Dunne has secured his place in next month's Open Championship at final qualifying at Woburn.

While still an amateur, Dunne held a share of the lead going into the final round of the Open at St Andrews last July, only to fall out of contention with a closing 78.

Since turning professional he has secured five top-20 finished on the European Tour and he secured his return to the Open with rounds of 68 and 67 for nine-under par total at the qualifying event at Woburn.

Ryan Evans finished second behind Dunne with Robert Rock defeating Aaraon Rai in a play-off to claim the third spot at Royal Troon.

Colin Montgomerie also secured his place in the Open field with a five-under at Gailes.

"It means the world to me, sure it does, and I look forward to playing and am delighted to do so", Montgomerie told The Open's official Twitter feed.

"I had an opportunity at the Senior Open when I was two ahead with eight to go and didn't win, and then of course you think you have blown the thing.

"But it was nice to come here with 72 players, a high-quality field and to finish third, which is all one has to do."

Sweden's Oskar Arvidsson and Spanish player Scott Fernandez qualified alongside Montgomerie, while Matthew Southgate, who was fourth in the Irish Open, emerged victories at Royal Cinque Ports.
