EuroPro Tour players make the Open Championship

July 9th, 2008

Ivobank PGA EuroPro Tour players Jamie Elson, Peter Appleyard and Barry Hume have all qualified for The Open Championship at Royal Birkdale on July 17-20.

The trio came through the tough final local qualifying on Tuesday with Elson (Forum Financial Associates, pictured) finishing three shots clear of the rest at four under at Hillside, thanks largely to an opening round of 67 on Monday – with a hole-in-one to boot. Hume (Scotland) and Appleyard (Read Group/Wildernesse) finished second and tied third respectively at West Lancashire.

Jamie Elson has been ever-present on the Tour this year while Peter Appleyard has played in five of six tournaments and Barry Hume finished joint second at The Shire London.
