American star Kuchar set to tee it up at Gullane

The Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open, a Rolex Series event, will once again play a key role in American star Matt Kuchar’s schedule, with confirmation that he will tee it up at Gullane Golf Club on July 12-15, 2018, and tickets to see him in action are available from just £15.

The four-time Ryder Cup player’s tied fourth finish at the tournament in 2017 led to his best ever showing at The Open Championship at Royal Birkdale the following week, where he finished as runner-up to compatriot Jordan Spieth.

Paul Bush, Director of Events, VisitScotland said, “We are delighted that Matt Kuchar will be making a welcome return to play in The Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open this summer. He is a popular player among golf fans around the world and it will be a real treat for the Scottish crowds to see him tee it up at Gullane. He adds his name to an already first class field which only reinforces the appeal that playing in Scotland, the Home of Golf has for even the world’s top players.” 

This year the Scottish Open is once again part of the Rolex Series - the premium category of tournaments on the European Tour’s Race to Dubai, each with a minimum prize fund of US$7million - and again takes its traditional slot in the week before The Open at Carnoustie Golf Links.

Six out of the last eight winners of The Open have taken part in The Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open before claiming the Claret Jug and Kuchar believes teeing it up in Scotland, the Home of Golf, is the perfect preparation as he chases his first Major Championship title.
