It’s the start of two star-studded weeks of professional golf in Scotland, as the Genesis Scottish Open returns to East Lothian.

The Rolex Series Event is far from just a tune-up for next week’s major championship, though, with the winner set to take home over $1.5 million.

Founded in 1972, the tournament is set for its sixth spin around the magnificent Renaissance Club in North Berwick – where Rory McIlroy was crowned the winner 12 months ago.

The four-time major champ is set for a return to competitive action for the first time since his US Open heartbreak at Pinehurst No.2 in June.

He’ll be joined by the likes of Collin Morikawa and Xander Schauffele, the champion of 2022.

Meanwhile, Robert MacIntyre will give his national open another crack after falling just short to the Northern Irishman in last year’s renewal.

MacIntyre is one of several Scots in the field before the attention turns to Royal Troon for the 152nd Open Championship next week.

Here’s everything you need to know about this week’s event…

The bunkered Bet

Wyndham Clark 40/1

The American arrives in North Berwick further down the betting market, despite enjoying a solid season so far. Clark won at Pebble Beach before finishing second at the Arnold Palmer and the PLAYERS, as well as a T3 finish at the RBC Heritage. His power and efficiency tee-to-green should stand him in good stead for a third crack at this title after previous finishes of 16th and 25th.
