Irish Open :: the Scottish charge

2014 06 1719846991

A number of Scots will be making the short trip to Ireland this week for the Irish Open, all hoping to follow in the footsteps of Colin Montgomerie and Sam Torrance and bring back the trophy.


A total of fourteen Scotsmen will travel to Fota Island, Cork, to take on the likes of  Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell.

Scots aiming for Irish Open success


U.S. Open - Preview Day 2

Stephen Gallacher – The world No.36 is enjoying a good year and is pushing for a place in Paul McGinley’s Ryder Cup team. He missed the cut at Pinehurst, but Gallacher is one of the highest ranked players competing in Cork and it would surprise many if he didn’t have role to play come Sunday.

Paul Lawrie – Lawrie has been struggling with his form of late, missing the cut in his last event and without a top-ten finish all year. However, as one of the more experienced players in the field and with an eye on the Scottish Open, this could be the tournament where he finds some form?

Richie Ramsay – Another Aberdonian looking to improve his form this week is Richie Ramsay. Since the beginning of 2013 Ramsay has fallen nearly 100 places in the world rankings, although he has finished inside the top-five twice in his last seven events. Will he challenge at the Irish Open?

BMW PGA Championship - Day Three

Marc Warren – A strong 13th place finish at the BMW Championship from Warren added to respectable performances in the Open de Espana and at Laguna National. He comes into Foto Island on the back of a missed cut looking to regain his form.

Chris Doak – Doak also failed to make the weekend at the US Open. However, as he pulled out of last year’s event, he will be eager to make up for lost time. He performed well at the BMW Championship and is just back from playing at Pinehurst, so the stage of the  Irish Open won’t phase him.

Also in the field: Scott Henry, Scott Jamieson, Craig Lee, Alastair Forsyth, David Drysdale, Peter Whiteford, Duncan Stewart, Jack Doherty and Jamie McLeary.
