Thriston Lawrence, Zander Lombard and Ashley Chesters have secured their places in The 150th Open at St Andrews after qualifying through the Joburg Open.


Joburg Open 2021 R3

The event was initially cut to 54 holes yesterday to allow non-South African resident players to return home after the emergence of a new Covid-19 variant in the country. Inclement weather then forced play to be suspended earlier today and with large parts of the Firethorn Course at Randpark deemed unplayable, a final result after 36 holes was declared earlier this afternoon.

It meant that Lawrence was confirmed as the winner of the Joburg Open, becoming the first winner of the DP World Tour era, after finishing the second round four shots ahead of Lombard on a 12-under-par total of 130.

“It’s a lifelong dream that’s come true,” said Lawrence. “I’ve never played in a major before and to play your first one at St Andrews is unbelievable. I can’t wait, I’m so excited. From a young age, it was a goal of mine and it’s unbelievable to achieve it.”

Chesters finished tied for third place alongside Shaun Norris on a seven-under-par total of 135. The Englishman earned his spot at St Andrews thanks to the South African already being exempt.

“It’s going to be very exciting to play in The 150th Open,” said Chesters. “I played at St Andrews as an amateur in 2015 and I did quite well that year, which was really nice, but I did say at the time that it would be good to go back there as a professional so I’m really happy and excited. I know the course very well so hopefully that will give me a chance come July.”
