Scottish Open :: Neeps & Tatties :: Day 3

Scottish Open morsels direct from Royal Aberdeen

Back for good?

Don’t be alarmed McIlroy fans, Rors is a stick-on to return to Royal Aberdeen. “For sure, definitely,” he replied when asked if he was coming back. Hallelujah!


Haar to spot?

Given his get-ups, you'd think Rickie Fowler would be a hard man to miss, but that’s exactly what one American fan did as he walked the second fairway. I had to point out that the Oklahoma man was currently on the hole as she ‘waited’ intently for her ‘favourite guy’.


Royal Aberdeen packs a punch


No question about it: Royal Aberdeen is one old lady with plenty of fight. Phil Mickelson finished the day on two-under-par. “It’s surprising a course this old is still testing players a couple of hundred years later,” laughed last year’s winner.


Robert Karlsson loves going out

Robert Karlsson must wish the Scottish Open was a nine-hole tournament. He’s played the front in a combined eight-under. On the back, though, the big Swede is a total of four-over - the biggest front/back contrast of any player.


Golf’s fashionista


Hats off to this woman who still managed to get round the Balgowie Links through a covering of haar despite wearing a skirt and sandals. A dedicated follower of fashion indeed.


The bitter end

The Scottish Open’s back-nine has been a killer this week. Fittingly, the last hole has been the toughest. It has played almost half a shot over-par and delivered the most bogeys and doubles all week.


Passport mix up?

Scottish Open

After Shane Lowry’s ‘defection' to the Ivory Coast yesterday, it seems Max Kieffer is in on the act, too. (Psst, leaderboard folk... it's upside down!)


Keeping your nose clean

Can anyone remember the last time Craig Lee had a bogey? Neither can Craig Lee. In his last 40 holes at the Scottish Open, the Scot has just the one blemish on his card. Not bad!


Flying the flag

After round three there are five Scots inside the top 20. That’s more than England, America and Spain. Clearly, the home support is working wonders.
