To clarify, the Open will be available to all nationalities.

There are also discussions that might involve concessions for overseas players (reduced travel/accommodation costs) - more will follow when it is known.

There are another 5-7 players to add to those three who don’t play much online - including Ace72 (Richard Ratcliffe) and Jonathon Arnott.
