Double act




Marc Warren and Justin Rose looked ready for a Ryder Cup match rather than a Scottish Open duel. Thankfully, Rose took his jumper off midway through the round. Commentators breathing a sigh of relief.

Fowler’s foul


Rickie Fowler may be disappointed this year when he turns up for September’s Ryder Cup match. Asked how much he was looking forward to coming back over to Scotland for the contest, Fowler replied: “Well, I love playing links golf." That's great, Rickie. But the PGA Centenary Course is a heathland course.

The Scottish Open formula

Three’s a crowd


The Royal Aberdeen course record was broken three times last week. First it was Thomas Broberg with a 65, then McIlroy got in on the act with a 64, only for Felipe Aguilar to beat him with a 63. Three course records in four days - is that record in itself?

Ricardo Gonzalez finished up on six-under-par for the Scottish Open. He played the last three holes six-over-par for the week, though. If he had parred his way in, a spot in the Open would've been his.
