Entries are now being taken for The 2013 Senior Open Championship Presented by Rolex, which will take place at Royal Birkdale for the first time from July 25-28.

Players will be able to qualify at one of three links courses along England’s Golf Coast  – Formby, Hillside and Southport & Ainsdale – on the Monday prior to the start of the Championship (July 22).

More than 300 senior golfers are expected to compete in the Monday qualifier, vying for approximately 25-30 spots in the final field alongside some of the game’s all-time greats, including defending champion Fred Couples who claimed his first Senior Open Championship at Turnberry in July.
