The tournament, which is usually held in April but has been delayed to November because of the coronavirus pandemic, features a field of 93 players.

They will start off the first and 10th tees on Thursday and Friday to ensure everyone can complete their rounds before darkness.

The criteria for making the cut has changed, with only the lowest 50 and ties playing the final two rounds. Previously, anyone within 10 shots of the lead also made the cut.
