A look at the players who have qualified to play at the 2015 Open Championship at St Andrews

By Jac de Wet

Open 2015 players: America

As the continent with the largest number of players, naturally there is a lot of talent in the group and multiple title contenders, one of these people being Jordan Spieth who at the age of only 21 is ranked 2nd in the world.

Having already had a successful year after winning both the Masters Tournament and the US Open, there is a high possibility of a third success as an outstanding up and coming golfer.

Winner of the 2012 and 2014 Masters , Bubba Watson also stands a very good chance in this year’s Open. He currently stands 3rd in the world rankings after Spieth, however is also yet to win an Open Championship. After his recent run of form there is certainly potential this year for a title to go his way.

In 4th and 5th position in the current world rankings are Dustin Johnson and Jim Furyk. So far this year Johnson has been very successful, coming 2nd in the US Open and 6th in the Masters. However he also hasn’t quite managed an Open Championship victory, with his closest attempt being the number two spot in 2012.

Jim Furyk is another to watch out for next week as one of the more experienced golfers at the tournament. He claimed the US Open title in 2003 and also placed 4th in last years Open Championship therefore looking to put up a good fight for this year’s title.
