Three Open places on offer in South Africa

Three spots will up for grabs at this week's African leg of international qualifying for the 2005 British Open, tournament organisers said on Tuesday.

The number of places available has been reduced from last year's four, following a review of the qualifier's starting field by the Royal and Ancient Golf Club (R&A) committee.

Thirty players are expected to tee off at the Atlantic Beach Golf Club in Cape Town, South Africa on Thursday in a 36-hole qualifying tournament, one of five taking place around the world between January and June.

The top three finishers in Cape Town will qualify to play in the 134th British Open at St Andrews, Scotland from July 14-17.

International qualifying tournaments were introduced by the R&A last year to make it more convenient and less expensive for overseas-based players to qualify for the world's oldest major championship.
