SSE Scottish Senior Open returns for 2014

2014 01 Torrance

Fairmont St Andrews will welcome some of the biggest stars of days gone by when it stages the SSE Scottish Senior Open for the sixth successive year.


The event, one of the most prestigious on the European Senior Tour, will take place on the resort’s Torrance Course from August 15-17, where Santiago Luna will try to defend the title he won last year.

The Spaniard’s victory was his first on the over-50s circuit and came 15 years on from his defeat of Tiger Woods in St Andrews during the now-defunct Alfred Dunhill Cup.

This year’s will be the 22nd edition of the SSE Scottish Senior Open, which was first won by England’s Tommy Horton in 1993. He claimed the title for a second time in 1997, while Neil Coles, Bill Longmuir and José Rivero have all added their names to the prestigious roll of honour.
There is an outside chance Miguel Angel Jimenez will take part in this year's SSE Scottish Senior Open

One man who will be particularly keen to win this year will be Scotland’s Sam Torrance, the brains behind the host course and a winner of the event in 2006 when it was staged at the Marriott Dalmahoy Hotel & Country Club near Edinburgh.

Torrance, the European Tour’s all-time appearance record holder, came within a whisker of winning last year, eventually finishing tied for second, one shot behind Luna.

The SSE Scottish Senior Open is a great opportunity to see some of the stars of yesteryear up close and personal.

There is also an outside chance that Miguel Angel Jimenez will be amongst the players taking part. The Spaniard turned 50 a couple of weeks ago and so became for the senior circuit. However, it is still unclear how much the oldest player ever to win on the European Tour intends to compete on the Senior Tour this year.
