BOB TWAY, the American who won the 1986 US PGA title by holing a bunker shot on the last green, is among a number of players forced to enter the final qualifying tournament for the Open at Turnberry in a fortnight.

Tway, joint-fifth three years ago at Birkdale, is up against Christy O'Connor Jnr, Carl Mason and Gary Evans at Irvine Bogside, one of the four courses being used on 11-12 July.

The former Ryder Cup trio of David Feherty, Jose Maria Canizares and Brian Barnes are at Kilmarnock Barassie, while the American Ryder Cup men Mark O'Meara and Peter Jacobsen are at Glasgow Gailes and Western Gailes.
