Anthony Kim accepts Open invite
Clark withdrew on Wednesday after the South African failed to recover from a left elbow injury that has prevented him from playing since the middle of May.
Kim finished seventh in his Open debut in 2008, but failed to make the cut the following year and missed the 2010 event following thumb surgery.
