Last week, Englishman Tyrrell Hatton claimed the European Tour’s flagship event, the BMW PGA Championship. This week, the Tour moves back up north for the Scottish Championship at the world famous St Andrews.
Brandon Stone – Grant Forrest – Eddie Pepperell
Stone is a former winner of the Scottish Open back in 2018, his only Rolex Series win. The South African finished T19 two weeks ago at the same event, although he missed the cut last week at Wentworth.
Forrest has been in good form of late, with two Top 20 finishes in his last three events. He impressed last week, but a disappointing weekend meant he finished T32.
Pepperell has found his form after a sixth place finish last week and a T9 finish the week before in Scotland. He has a good record in Scotland, having finished runner-up at the Scottish Open in 2018.
Lee Westwood – Robert MacIntyre – Aaron Rai
The 2019 Rookie of the Year finished T14 two weeks ago at the Scottish Open. MacIntyre had a great amateur career in Scotland, winning the Scottish Amateur in 2015 & 2016.
Rai claimed the biggest win of his career two weeks ago at the Scottish Open, his first Rolex Series win. He missed the cut last week at Wentworth after a second round 77.
Connor Syme – Renato Paratore – Stephen Gallacher
Syme had three consecutive Top 10’s after returning from lockdown but has struggled for form of late, missing two cuts in his last three events.
Paratore had a strong showing last week at Wentworth as he finished T7. The Italian has been in good form since returning from lockdown, winning the British Masters back in July.
Matt Wallace – Sam Horsfield – Padraig Harrington
Wallace finished T30 two weeks ago in Scotland and secured a T24 finish last week at Wentworth.
Harrington is a three time Major winner with one of his victories coming at Carnoustie. The Irishman has also won twice at St Andrews (2002 & 2006).
The English pair of Matt Wallace and Lee Westwood will be the favourites for the event, but with a number of players currently in form anyone could claim the title come Sunday.
