Malta’s Schulze Doering reaches Final Qualifying round of The Open Championship

Lauren’s Schulze Doering confirmed his fine run of form by getting through to final qualifying phase for a place in the 150th Open Championship at St Andrews.

On Monday, nine spots were available to progress into Final Qualifying at Burhill Golf Club. Established in 1907, the Burhill Golf Club is one of the finest golf venues in Surrey.

The starting field of 125 players, which comprised 80 professionals and 45 amateurs, were all aiming to place in the Top 9 to secure a spot in Final Qualifying.

Schulze Doering registered a score of one over par, which included 11 pars, four bogeys, and three birdies.

A bogey on the last hole made it an anxious wait until all the players finished their round. However, his efforts were enough to put him tied for eighth place and progress to next week.

National Team player, Andrew Borg, was also competing at the same venue, however, a score of +11 put him in T92.

It is worth mentioning that Borg had made it through to Final Qualifying back in 2004 when the Open Championship was being held at Royal Troon.

The Final Qualifying round will take place on June 28, where Schulze will be competing at St Annes Old Links.

One hundred and 42 players will then be just 36 holes away from a potential place in The 150th Open, with a minimum of 12 places in the landmark Championship up for grabs being held at the iconic venue of St Andrews.
