Dubai resident Guido Migliozzi has secured his place in The Open Championship after winning his fourth DP World Tour title at the KLM Open.

The Italian entered the final day one shot off the lead at The International but found himself three clear in a tie for top spot at one point and led alone by one early on the back nine before a pair of bogeys left him two behind.

He then birdied the 16th and 18th to sign for a roller coaster 70 and finish at 11 under alongside Joe Dean and Marcus Kinhult.

The trio all made two-putt birdies on the first trip back up the par-five last and while Dean and Kinhult both made par at the second attempt despite the Englishman hitting a poor tee-shot and the Swede finding the water, Migliozzi found the green in two and left himself two feet for a sixth four on the closing hole and a dramatic win.

Migliozzi's victory sees him earn a place at The Open Championship next month alongside Dean, who edged out Kinhult for the second spot by virtue of the Official World Golf Ranking.

"It was one of my main goals this year to be part of that,” said Migliozzi.

“It's just incredible and it's beautiful to compete at The Open. The Open is so special, it's probably the tournament. It's a dream to play and it would be a bigger dream to hold the Claret Jug.To play at a beautiful golf course like Troon it will be special. I can't wait to tee it up at The Open."

It will be just the fourth time that the 27-year-old has featured in the final Major Championship of the season, with his best finish coming last year when he ended up in a share of 64th at Royal Liverpool.

Fellow Dubai-based pros Adrian Meronk and Thorbjorn Olesen have already booked their spot at Royal Troon next month, while the UAE’s No.1 golfer, Joshua Grenville-Wood, and Trump Dubai’s Garrick Porteous will hope to play their way in through Final Qualifying.
