Although those events have just one place each, whereas the Major Open has a variable number (all players who achieve a certain score qualify).
Well, if the tournament as it stands offers me a decent chance of qualifying for the British Championship then it’s clearly not fit for purpose.
I understand the financial logic of trying to get everybody qualified for the British but I don’t particularly like it. If it must be like this, why don’t they just be honest and say 'anybody who’s prepared to pay can enter?'
