Scottish golfers Sam Locke and Grant Forrest have both qualified for the Open Championship at Carnoustie.

Stonehaven amateur Locke, 19, finished on seven-under-par to lead the field at The Renaissance Club.

Locke came through the foundation of 1999 Open champion Paul Lawrie, and works part-time in the coffee shop at Lawrie's Aberdeenshire golf centre.

His father, Andrew Locke, is a PGA professional who has coached him since he was three, and used to coach Lawrie.

Forrest, 25, will join Locke at the year's third starting major on 19 July after finishing one shot behind.

Two-time US Open winner Retief Goosen is also among the qualifiers, with a one-under-par at Princes good enough to take one of the 12 spots on offer.

South African Goosen, 49, has twice finished tied in fifth place at the Open, in 2005 and 2009, but had not qualified since 2015.
