The duo booked their places at the July 19-22 Major championship after finishing in the top two in a mini European Tour money list following Sunday's Irish Open.

"I am very happy to be competing in the Open - that's going to be exciting," Thongchai told the tour's official website.

"I knew if I made the cut in Ireland I would almost certainly qualify," he added after finishing tied 18th at Royal Portrush in County Antrim.
