SHANGHAI (AP) - The British Open is moving away from 36-hole qualifying, instead using 10 tour events from five continents to determine 32 spots in the field.

The only 36-hole qualifying that remains for golf's oldest championship will be 12 spots from four links courses in Britain just before the Open. Players who fail to get in the British Open off their own tours can enter those final qualifiers.
