Event Preview

An important month of action on the PGA Tour will be kickstarted in Europe this weekend, as the Scottish Open takes place at the Renaissance Club. This event has been competed since 1972, and it is the most notable event on the golf schedule to be staged in Scotland. It also offers a last chance for eligible players to earn a spot in the field for The Open at the end of July.

A lucrative purse of $9 million will be up for grabs in the event this weekend, as players compete over a total distance of 7,237 yards at the par 70 event. This weekend’s stroke play event has been won by some of the finest players throughout history, with the tournament record score being held by Brandon Stone.

Rory McIlroy will be a prominent selection on his return to action following his disappointing finish at the U.S. Open last month. The Northern Irishman claimed victory in the Scottish Open last year, and there will be a lot of attention on him this weekend, as he bids to shake off his heart-breaking loss in the previous major.

Xander Schauffele is unlikely to be that far away across the coming weekend, with the American previously winning the Scottish Open in 2022 by a shot. Other recent winners that could play interesting roles this weekend include Min Woo Lee and Brandon Stone. Meanwhile, Ludvig Aberg appears to be building momentum after finishing in a tie for 12th at the U.S. Open and making the cut at the recent Travelers Championship.


Scottish Open Prediction

Collin Morikawa is typically a player that I like to keep faith with when it comes to links events. The American is a previous winner of The Open, and was last seen finishing just six shots off the lead at the Travelers Championship.
