Robert Mac Intyre

Scotland’s highest ranked golfer Robert MacIntyre will have reigning European No.1 Lee Westwood and major champion Collin Morikawa for company in the opening two rounds of this week’s Scottish Open.

MacIntyre gets his bid for a second European Tour title underway alongside the duo at 8.10am from the tenth hole of The Renaissance Club on Thursday morning.

Morikawa is a familiar face to MacIntyre, the pair having played on opposing teams during the 2017 Walker Cup at Los Angeles Country Club.
