SHANGHAI (AP) — The British Open is moving away from 36-hole qualifying, instead using 10 tour events from five continents to determine 32 spots in the field.

The only 36-hole qualifying that remains for golf's oldest championship will be 12 spots available from four links courses just before the British Open. They will become permanent sites. Players who fail to get in the British Open from their own tour can enter those final qualifying sites.

Still towering over the 18th green was that enormous, glorious, yellow scoreboard with all the letters and numbers in place.

"Well done, Phil. See you at Royal Liverpool."
