Aig Womens Open Flag

This week it’s one of the most anticipated events on the calendar, as the AIG Women’s Open comes to Muirfield for the final major championship of the year.

For many reasons, it’s a week that golf fans around Scotland, and indeed the world, have marked in their calendars. It will be the first professional event where women have competed at Muirfield, since a vote in 2017 allowed them to join the club.

For the tournament itself, the best players in the world will be competing over one of the best regarded links layoutsin Scotland.

Brooke Henderson, Nelly and Jessica Korda and Jin-Young Ko are among those competing, in what is certain to be an exciting and historic week on Scotland's Golf Coast.

AIG have sponsored the eventsince 2019, with editions before that sponsored by RICOH. Last year, it was Anna Nordqvist who triumphed, pipping Georgia Hall, Lizette Salas and Magdalene Sagstrom to the title at Carnoustie. That week, Louise Duncan finished as the top amateur in the field, and she'll be competing for the second year running, this time as a professional.

With that being said, let's take a look at the details of the week...
