Adam Scott heading to Scotland ahead of Open Championship

Adam Scott has confirmed he will head north of the border to play in this year’s Scottish Open, as he prepares for the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale.

The former World No.1 admitted that he usually prefers to spend the week leading up to The Open practicing on the course, but a change in schedule this year means a change in preparation, too.

The 36-year-old Australian will now head to the Dundonald Links in a bid to hone his game for Birkdale, and is looking forward to returning to action in the Scottish Open for the first time since 2009.

“I haven’t played a Scottish Open for a long while, and I am looking forward to heading back to Dundonald, as I went there about 10 years and just played the course for fun," said Scott. “The last few years I have spent the entire week playing the Open venue, just getting myself acclimatised, and getting used to playing links shots.

"But then this year, and with a second baby due in August, my schedule is a little different, so the thought of going over to play a few practice rounds at Birkdale, and then playing the Scottish Open ahead of the Open, sounds good to me.”
