  • Played a week before The Open Championship, the Scottish Open is one of the most keenly contested championships on the European Tour calendar.

    First played in 1972, the tournament has been held at a number of prestigious courses including Downfield, St Andrews, Haggs Castle, Gleneagles, Carnoustie, Loch Lomond, Castle Stuart, Royal Aberdeen, Gullane before moving back to its current home at Castle Stuart in 2016.

    Only Ian Woosnam and Ernie Els have won multiple Scottish Open titles, with Woosnam winning twice at Gleneagles and once at Carnoustie, and both of Els' victories coming at Loch Lomond.

    In 2014 Rory McIlroy's Claret Jug victory at The Open Championship was the fourth in succession by a golfer who had played in the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open the week previously, following in the footsteps of Darren Clarke (2011), Ernie Els (2012) and Phil Mickelson (2013).

    In 2015, America's Rickie Fowler recorded three birdies in the last four holes to win the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open by one stroke.
