Five qualify for Open in Singapore

Australians Adam Groom, David Gleeson and Won Joon Lee will play in this year's British Open at Carnoustie after coming through Final International Qualifying on Wednesday.

Briton Ross Bain and Lam Chih-bing of Singapore also booked their places in the major championship after playing 36 holes over Sentosa Golf Club's Tanjong course.

The 28-year-old Groom finished on nine under par after rounds of 66 and 69, with Gleeson, Bain and Lam on eight under, a shot ahead of Lee.

"It was going on well until I struck a triple bogey on the ninth hole," Groom said. "But I knuckled down on the back nine and struck four birdies without a single bogey, so that was a good way to end the day."

Lee finished level with Korean Park Jun-won and took the final spot when he sank a three-foot birdie putt at the first playoff hole.

"This is fantastic. I was fully focused on my last shot at the playoff and when it went in, I was really happy," Lee said.

Lam became only the second Singaporean to qualify for the British Open, which takes place at Carnoustie, Scotland from July 19-22.
