American Ryder Cup star Matt Kuchar and former champ Luke Donald have introduced their names to an already glorious field for Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open at the Gullane Golf Club.
Like his fellow countryman, who is also a reigning champ Justin Rose, Luke will be targeting to lift the most wanted trophy for a 2nd time, having winning when the event was taken place at the Castle Stuart Golf Links in the year 2011.
That magnificent performance – he reached home by 4 shots thanks to a closing round of Sixty three, earned Luke his 6 win on The European Tour and, having won the Yacht Charter Croatia PGA event for a 2nd time in the year 2013, the thirty seven year old will be look for an 8th Tour title when he deals with Gullane’s Championship course – a complex of Number One and Number Two – from 9th July to 12th July.
Luke boasts a magnificent record in #3.25 million event – he ended in the Top-5 in each of his 1st three appearances, before snatching it in its 4th try – and the ex world No 1 is decided to carry on that run and sharpen his match before The 144th Open Championship that takes place the following week on Old Course at St Andrews.
He stated that he has tended to do well in the Scottish Open whenever he has played the event in the past, so he would obviously be very keen to carry on that good run this year. He got the scope to play Gullane last year and really relished it, so he is looking ahead to going back and teeing it up competitively.
