Scottie Scheffler, Justin Rose and Robert MacIntyre have confirmed their returns to the Renaissance Club for this year’s Genesis Scottish Open.
The trio will help to form a field that is shaping up nicely, with Xander Schauffele, Matt Fitzpatrick and Justin Thomas already confirmed to be making their way to Scotland’s Golf Coast this July.
Scheffler, the world No.1 and reigning Masters champion, will be making his third successive appearance at the Rolex Series event.
“I’ve enjoyed having the Genesis Scottish Open on my schedule over the past few years and I’m looking forward to getting back to the Renaissance Club again,” said the 26-year-old.
“It’s a fun golf course to play, and I really like the style of golf it requires of you. I feel like it helps with preparation going into the Open the following week too, getting a feel for the style of golf and also playing in a big event with such a strong field and supportive fans.”
Justin Rose will be hoping for a repeat of his 2014 victory in the event, where his two-shot victory at Royal Aberdeen secured back-to-back wins, after he won on the PGA Tour the week before.
“The win in 2014 was part of a special run in my career, and it’s always a pleasure to come back to the Genesis Scottish Open,” said the Olympic Gold Medal winner.
“The Scottish fans are knowledgeable and appreciative of good golf, and they add so much to what is already a huge event. My game is in a great place just now and I look forward to trying to lift the trophy for a second time this summer.”
Robert MacIntyre will be making his fifth consecutive appearance in his home open, and will be hoping for a good result to help him in his bid to get on the Ryder Cup team.
“There is no better feeling than playing in front of your home crowds, and I can’t wait for the Genesis Scottish Open to come around again this season,” said the Oban native.
“It’s always been a huge event, and from becoming part of the Rolex Series to being co-sanctioned with the PGA TOUR, it has just become bigger and better every year. It’s always a highlight of my summer and I look forward to trying to get my hands on that trophy in what is a massive year.”
The Genesis Scottish Open takes place from July 13-16 at the Renaissance Club in East Lothian.
