The Scottish Open has always been one of the biggest events of the Race to Dubai, often honored by the presence of Phil Mickelson over the past twenty years. The two American stars will take over from the California left-hander this summer, with the definitive appearances of Xander SC Chowdel and Colin Morikawa in North Berwick, holding third and USPGA respectively in previous Masters.
These two Americans will make their debut in a tournament labeled this Rolex Series and will therefore count for the European circuit. Morikawa, the sixth player in the world: “ I am looking forward to playing in Scotland for the first time. I can’t wait to make my tournament debut and play in golf country. I’ve heard a lot about this tournament and will enjoy playing on the European Tour again. »
Three years after his second place at the British Open in Carnoustie, Xander SC Chowdell would return to Scotland. Feedback: ” I have fond memories of playing in Scotland and hope to rekindle that form and find myself in contention at Renaissance Club. It is a historic tournament and I would like to add my name to the list of great champions. “
On the European side and still in the top 10 world circle, we will also note Tyrell Hatton’s presence for this Scottish Open to be played on the Renaissance track. Soon after finishing second at the Scottish Open that year, the 8th Englishman in the world won his first European title on Scottish soil (Dunhill Lynx 2016).
