Donald replaces Van Zyl for The Open


Luke Donald will play the 2016 Open Championship after Jaco van Zyl withdrew from the field.

Former world number one Donald qualified for last month's U.S. Open through a six-man play-off but missed the cut at Oakmont.

Donald's best performance at The Open saw him finish tied-fifth in 2009 and 2012.

The Englishman missed the cut the last time the competition was held at Royal Troon in 2004.
