Gold Coast golf professional, Steven Jeffress, has qualified for the biggest tournament of his career – the British Open Championship – thanks to an impressive qualifying round last week at Kingston Heath Golf Club (Melbourne) and sponsorship from Robbie Bennetts Enterprises.

Jeffress finished nine under par in the two-day International Final Qualifying shootout for the Australasia region and now has his sights set firmly on maintaining that form in the lead up to the Open. It will be his first major championship and something he says is still sinking in.

“Qualifying for the British Open is an ambition of every professional golfer, just like playing for Australia is the dream of every kid playing cricket or football. When it happens, it takes some getting used to,” said Jeffress.

“But I can’t wait. It’ll be incredible to play alongside some of the golfers I watch week in, week out and I’m sure that will help bring out the best in my play.”

Jeffress is sponsored by Gold Coast business, Robbie Bennetts Enterprises. CEO, Robbie Bennetts, said it was just reward for one of the hardest working local professionals he had met.

“Steven’s achievement is just fantastic for Australian golf and is completely deserved. No one is more dedicated to the hard grind of practice and looking for every minute improvement in his game.

“I’m thrilled for Steven and his family and am delighted that our sponsorship has played a small part in helping him achieve the goal of a lifetime,” Bennetts said.

The British Open will be played at Muirfield in Scotland from 18 – 21 July. International Final Qualifying events are held in five locations around the world to give more players the chance to gain direct entry into the British Open. Jeffress was one of three qualifiers from the Australasian event.
