Field for the 2014 British Open
The field at Open Championships is filled partially through regional and final qualifying tournaments, and partially through exemptions from qualifying granted to tour pros who meet any of 31 criteria established by the R&A. Those criteria mostly have to do with previous performances in majors, money list rankings and world rankings. The R&A's championship Web site provides information on both qualifiers and exemptions:
