Glasgow, July 10 (IANS) Top golfers will be seen in action when the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open Tour gets underway at the Renaissance Club in North Berwick, Scotland for the first time.
Rory McIlroy will tee up at the Scottish Open for the second time in three years, and is joined by a host of American stars including three-time Major winner Justin Thomas, who is making his Scottish Open debut.
The 2015 champion Rickie Fowler returns to East Lothian, as does Matt Kuchar, who will be making his third consecutive appearance at the event. For India it will again be Gaganjeet Bhullar and S.S.P Chawrasia who will be looking to keep the Indian challenge alive at the event after an unsatisfactory show at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.
The East Lothian track, which is one of the newest editions to the world famous stretch known as Scotland’s Gold Coast, previously hosted the Scottish Senior Open on the Staysure Tour in 2017, and now hosts an European Tour event for the first time.
For the home crowd, all eyes will be on Russell Knox who will be looking to clinch his second Rolex Series Title following his Dubai Duty Free Irish Open success last year. Also expected to attract a lot of home support will be Oban native Robert MacIntyre.
The 2018 European Challenge Tour graduate has shone during his rookie European Tour season, recording back-to-back runner-up results at the Betfred British Masters and Made in Denmark presented by FREJA. Fellow Scots Stephen Gallacher and David Law, who won the Hero Indian Open and ISPS Handa Vic Open, respectively, will be teeing up with Law looking for another victory on home soil after clinching his first professional win at the 2018 Scottish Challenge on the Challenge Tour.
The European Tour event will be brought LIVE and Exclusive to Indian audiences by DSPORT from July 11-14, from 3 p.m. onwards.
