Bruce Davidson qualifies for Senior Open at Sunningdale

Thirty-three players, including Scot Bruce Davidson (pictured), sealed their spots in The 2015 Senior Open Championship Presented by Rolex after progressing through qualifying, which took place across four different venues in Berkshire and Surrey.
A record total of 419 competitors teed it up in 18-hole qualifier in the hope of joining some of the legends of the game - including Bernhard Langer, Sir Nick Faldo, Miguel Angel Jiménez, Colin Montgomerie and Tom Watson – in the field at Sunningdale Golf Club, for the 29th Senior Open, which begins on Thursday.
At the Berkshire Golf Club, amateur Stephen East led the way, fired a six under par round of 66, to finish two shots clear of Australian Richard Backwell, with six more players joining them in earning a spot in the field.

Bruce Davidson from Banchory, originally, the founder of the Kings Links Golf Centre and driving range, and based in the USA for the past 20 years or so, qualified at this venue with a 69.
A further eight players progressed at Burhill Golf Club, where American Fran Quinn posted a two under par round of 70 to finish one shot clear of a trio of his compatriots, Sonny Skinner, Lance Tenbroeck and Greg Bruckner.
At Camberley Heath, English pair Robin Briars and Wraith Grant topped the leadboard after four under par rounds of 68, with former European Senior Tour winners Bob Cameron and Bobby Lincoln also among the nine qualifiers.
Finally, at Foxhills, Englishman Peter Scott and Frenchman Roger Sabarros led the eight qualifiers, both players signing for one under par rounds of 71.
