Rickie Fowler is eyeing a repeat of his summer 2015 heroics when he returns to Gullane for the Scottish Open this summer.

The world No.7 has confirmed he’ll be taking part in the event, where he will hope to draw on memories of his last visit to East Lothian.

Fowler, 29, won the Scottish Open at Gullane three years ago, birdieing three of his final four holes to hold off fellow Matt Kuchar and Raphael Jacquelin to seal his first European Tour victory.

It was a second brilliant finish of an impressive season for Fowler, who had earlier claimed victory in the Players Championship, where he played his last six holes in six-under-par.

“Gullane is a special place for me and I can’t wait to get back there for the Scottish Open this summer,” said Fowler.

“I love links golf. The golf course can play so differently each day and its always such an interesting challenge. Gullane was a very good test back in 2015. I had played the last four holes well all week, so I knew that I had some birdies in me after dropping a shot at the 14th on Sunday, and it turned out to be a perfect finish.”
