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: United Kingdom

There are certainly some players from the UK going into the Open who should make an impact on the competition.

Ian Poulter, Justin Rose and Paul Casey are just some examples of those who have proved themselves to be true golfing professionals.

Ian Poulter has achieved three top 10 spots in the Open Championship in the past, with 2nd place being his highest ranking score in 2008. He also got a 9th place finish in 2012 following up with 3rd place in 2013. As the 28th current best in the world Ian Poulter is certainly a title contender.

So far this year Poulter had a great finish of 6th place in the Masters Tournament but only placed at 54th in the US Open. However as an already well-established English golfer he should hopefully perform well at this year’s Open.

Arguably the best British golfer at the moment is Justin Rose who is ranked in the top 10 players internationally at 7th. His performance in previous Opens has been consistent with multiple placements in the top 20.

His form this year looks promising having finished 2nd at the Masters and 27th at the US Open, and with a finishing place of 23rd at the last Open in 2014 there is a chance that he could be in for the number one spot.
