While many see the Scottish Open as a warm up event for the world famous Open Championship, it is without doubt a leading European Tour event in its own right. As part of The Rolex Series, The Scottish Open attracts a world class field each year as golfers from across the globe get their prep in prior to The Open.
Players such as Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler, the 2015 champion, turn plenty of heads when they venture to Scotland for their links loosener but the host courses are also among the stars of the show each year, with the tournament visiting some of Scotland's most loved layouts, showcasing the quality on offer at The Home of Golf.
The Scottish Open is traditionally held a week before the Open Championship and in recent years, after leaving its long time home of Loch Lomond in 2011, the event has toured some spectacular links courses including the likes of Castle Stuart, Royal Aberdeen and Gullane Golf Club, and has attracted some of the biggest names in golf including Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler, who all look to fine tune their games on a traditional links course before heading to the 3rd major of the season. The first Scottish Open was established in 1935, and since then, when the total prize purse was just £750, the event has grown into one of the richest on the European Tour.
The 2018 Scottish Open was held at Gullane Golf Club, a host of top players assembled to test their game against the East Lothian course. Whilst we saw the likes of Rickie Fowler, Justin Rose and Trevor Immelman challenge the leaderboard at times it was South Africa's Brandon Stone who claimed the title, ending up four shots clear of the field. With The 2019 Scottish Open due to return to the East Lothian region we're sure to see a fantastic tournament once more.
