Scottish Open: Walker confirmed to play

2014 03 Jimmy Walker

American golf's man of the moment Jimmy Walker is the latest golfer to confirm that he will play in the 2014 Scottish Open at Royal Aberdeen.


The 35-year-old, a winner of three titles already on the 2013/14 PGA Tour schedule, will make his debut in the event this summer where he will hoped to follow in the footsteps of compatriot Phil Mickelson, who took the title at Castle Stuart Golf Links last year.

“I’m really excited about making my debut in the Scottish Open and tackling the fantastic links course at Royal Aberdeen,” said Walker, the current world No. 26 and current holder of the Frys.com Open, Sony Open, and AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am titles.

“We don’t get a chance to play much links golf over on the PGA Tour, so playing the Scottish Open is a great opportunity and a new challenge I’m relishing. The tournament always has a very strong field with many of the best players in the world, so I can’t wait to test my game there.”

Walker will be joined at Royal Aberdeen by defending champion Mickelson, as well as two-time major winner and former world No.1 Rory McIlroy.
This year’s Scottish Open will be the first European Tour event to be played in Aberdeen.

Others, including US Open champion Justin Rose, McIlroy’s fellow Northern Irishman Graeme McDowell, and English Ryder Cup star Luke Donald are expected to confirm their participation in the coming months.

This year’s tournament will be the first European Tour event to be played in Aberdeen. It moves to the North East after three broadly successful years at Castle Stuart Golf Links near Inverness.

Tickets are on-sale now, with early bird discounts available. A season ticket can be purchased for £60 in advance of the tournament, a saving of £20 on admission at the gate. Adult day tickets are currently priced at £25, rising to £35 on the gate.

Concessions (60 and over) start at £40 for a season ticket and £15 for any one-day tickets if purchased in advance. Under-16s accompanied by an adult are admitted free of charge and all car parking is also free.
