Woosnam has double target at World Open

Ian Woosnam has a double mission in the Sarazen World Open starting on Thursday -- an improvement from 29th place on the European prize money list and 77th in the world rankings.

The Briton knows that drastic action is needed in order to qualify for the lucrative World Golf Championship series.

"There is some big money to be played for in the World Golf Championships and at the moment I don't qualify for them,~ he said.

~I need to get into the top 20 on the Order of Merit so that I can play in the $5 million American Express championship at Valderrama next month and to get into the top 64 in the world rankings to be eligible for the World Match Play at La Costa next February.

As he prepared to play at the spectacular new PGA Cataluyna course near Barcelona -- the event has moved from Atlanta, Georgia, after five years -- Woosnam explained: ~I am playing here, in Belgium next week and the Volvo Masters. I probably need to win one but I feel I can do really well over the next few weeks and get back in there. Obviously I want to get into the big tournaments."
