Five golfers from Bexhill clubs are about to set off on the road to The Open Championship.

Cooden Beach quartet Colton Alleyne-Davis, Luke Cornford, Ben Nash and Paul Nessling, plus Highwoods player James Doswell will line-up in regional qualifying at East Sussex National tomorrow (Monday).

Nash is in the second match out at 8.11am, Cornford tees off at 10.17am, Nessling (who is listed on the drawsheet as unattached) goes out at 11.12am, amateur Alleyne-Davis starts at 11.50am and Doswell begins at 12.23pm.

The leading players from each of the 14 regional qualifying venues around the country will progress to local final qualifying, which in turn feeds into the event proper at Royal Lytham & St Annes from July 19-22.
