The Open 2019 Qualifying Series: Singapore Open Results

By Evan Chronis January 21, 2019

After an exhilarating weekend of action at the Serapong Course at Sentosa Golf Club, four more names have clinched their spots in The 148th Open this summer. 

Through The Open Qualifying Series, Jazz Janewattananond, Yoshinori Fujimoto, Doyeob Mun and Prom Meesawat have qualified for The Open 2019 by claiming the four available entrances allotted to the 2019 SMBC Singapore Open.

The Singapore Open was the third event of The Open 2019 Qualifying Series, a global series of tournaments that opens up a total of 46 qualifying spots for this year's event at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland

Here are the four men who will be in contention for the Claret Jug come July:

SMBC Singapore Open

Jazz Janewattananond

For the second year in a row, Jazz Janewattananond is headed back to The Open. 

After posting a stunning 65 on the final round of the 2019 Singapore Open, the 23-year old Thailand native finished at 18-under-par to take home the trophy and secure the first available spot in The 2019 Open. Janewattananond's fourth round included an impressive seven birdies on the Serapong Course to secure his victory. 

This is the second straight year that Janewattananond has qualified for The Open through the SMBC Singapore Open. At Carnoustie last year, Janewattananond didn't make the cut after shooting 8-over-par through two rounds.  

Yoshinori Fujimoto

Like Janewattananond, Japan's Yoshinori Fujimoto has secured a return trip to The Open after success in Singapore. 

Going into the final round, Fujimoto looked like he was going to leave Singapore with the trophy. However, nobody could have predicted Janewattananond's surge through the leaderboard on Sunday. 

But with a certain relentlessness to his game, Fujimoto was able to stick around the top of the pack, finishing 16-under-par and securing the second qualification place for The 148th Open. 

This will be Fujimoto's first appearance at The Open since 2012, when he finished tied for 54th with a seven-over-par over 72 holes. 

Doyeob Mun & Prom Meesawat

While finishing outside of the top three spots on the leaderboard, Doyeob Mun and Prom Meesawat did enough to book their tickets to The 148th Open. Both men shot nine-under-par, finishing tied for fifth place in Singapore. 

While Paul Casey finished second and Matthew Fitzpatrick finished fourth, both men have already qualified for The Open 2019 — meaning that Mun and Meesawat earned the final two spots available. 

For Mun, this will be his first ever time playing The Open. 

This will be Meesawat's second crack at the international major championship. He finished tied for 101st at The Open 2011 after shooting plus seven in two rounds and missing the cut.
