Genesis Scottish Open 2022: Preview, betting tips & how to watch

Scottish  Open Preview

It doesn’t get much bigger than this. The Genesis Scottish Open is coming to The Renaissance Club this week, and we have all the information you need ahead of one of the biggest weeks in the Scottish golf calendar.

The co-sanctioned event between the PGA Tour and DP World Tour has one of the strongest non-major fields in golf, with many of the world’s elite teeing it up in Scotland’s national open, sponsored by Genesis.

World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler leads a stacked field, which includes all four current major champions, and nine of the current top ten in the OWGR.

For many, more than one eye will be on St Andrews. In particular, it will be a chance for PGA Tour stalwarts to acclimatise themselves to links golf, before the 150th Open Championship. The chance to win a Rolex Series event, however, cannot be overlooked.

The players will head to The Renaissance Club in East Lothian for the fourth consecutive year, where they’ll face a course that will test the world’s best, especially if the conditions are anything other than perfect. As you can see here, things get tough if the wind picks up.

Last year, it was Min Woo Lee who took home the title, and the Aussie is in the field to defend his title. For home fans, Bob MacIntyre will look to lead the Scottish charge.

Let’s take a closer look at the details for what is sure to be an exciting week...

The bunkered Bet: 

Cameron Smith (22/1): It’s no easy task to pick a winner from this field, but Cameron Smith looks like a great option. Putting is going to be crucial this week, and not many roll it better than the world No. 6. While he might not be accustomed to Scottish golf, the experience of growing up in Australia should serve him well here.

Always gamble resonsibly. Odds available in the week of the tournament and are correct at time of publication.
