It’s links golf season.

The Scottish Open is the annual tune-up for players before the Open Championship, and always brings out the biggest names in golf. That’s no different in 2022.

Fourteen of the top 15 players in the world will play outside of Edinburgh at the Renaissance Club, which will host the Scottish Open for the fourth time.

The only player not in the top 15 of the Official World Golf Ranking who is not on the course this week is Rory McIlroy, who is playing in the JP McManus Pro-Am on Monday and Tuesday along with many of the top players before. to focus on St. Andrews. McIlroy is not someone who needs help in links golf.

McIlroy is the consensus betting favorite next week at St. Andrews, followed by the trio topping the Scottish Open odds board: Jon Rahm, Scottie Scheffler and Justin Thomas.

While Rahm, Scheffler and Thomas will be using this tournament primarily as preparation, they will certainly be out to win. All three finished T12 or better last year at Renaissance.

Reigning Open Championship winner Collin Morikawa and US Open winner Matt Fitzpatrick are among the next level for bettors, as is Xander Schauffele, who is coming off his Travelers Championship win.

The weather for this week looks like what you’d expect for Scotland in the summer. Highs will be in the 60s and winds will be consistently in the mid-teens.

The last big name player (at the time) to win this event was Rickie Fowler in 2015. Before him, Phil Mickelson won in 2013 and Justin Rose in 2014.

Change in 2022

In recent years, the Scottish Open has been a great stop on the DP World Tour. This year, however, it’s part of the PGA TOUR’s annual schedule.

Since all the top players were already spending this week at the Scottish Open and not in the United States at the John Deere Classic, the PGA TOUR and DP World Tour have it on their schedules for their respective seasons. Both tours will also feature this week’s Barbasol Championship and next week’s Barracuda Championship.

Previous winners

I’m not sure what’s in the Scottish Open, but there’s usually some major drama on Sundays.

The last three editions of this event have ended in playoffs, as well as four of the last five and seven of the last 10.

Min Woo Lee won last year, knocking out Thomas Detry and Fitzpatrick in a tiebreaker. Aaron Rai beat Tommy Fleetwood in extra holes in 2020, while Bernd Wiesberger beat Benjamin Hebert in 2019.

Usually the winner of this tournament does not have a big success the following week in the Open Championship. Mickelson is the exception, however, he did the double in 2013. Mickelson beat Branden Grace that year in a playoff at the Scottish, overcoming a five-shot deficit entering the final round to win his only Claret Jug.

Course Preview

If the weather remains dry, as is currently projected, expect the winning score to be in the 10-20s. Wiesberger tied the tournament record with his winning score of 22-under in 2019. In 2020, Rai was the winner with just 11 under par because the weather didn’t cooperate with the players.

The Renaissance Club is a par 71 of just over 7,300 yards. Strong iron players have tended to thrive here in recent years, which is no surprise.

Another thing that’s not surprising: DP World Tour regulars tend to come out on top here.

Lee has played on the PGA TOUR more often this season, but has thrived more in Europe since turning pro. Wiesberger is a staple of the DP World Tour, Rai is English and travels between the PGA TOUR and Europe throughout the year, while 2018 winner Brandon Stone is seen much more in Europe than in the United States.
