Rory McIlroy confirmed to tee it up at the ASI Scottish Open

Rory McIlroy has confirmed his participation in the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open.

The four-time Major champion will compete at The Renaissance Club in North Berwick on July 11-14, 2019.

The former World Number One will tee it up as the third event in the 2019 Rolex Series once again takes its traditional slot in the week before The Open.

The Northern Irishman clinched his 23rd worldwide title at The Players Championship in March and have one eye on claiming a second Claret Jug and adding to a Major collection which also includes the 2011 U.S. Open and the US PGA Championship in 2012 and 2014.

With his 2014 victory at Royal Liverpool, McIlroy became one of six of the last nine winners of The Open who prepared for their Major triumph by taking part in the Scottish Open the previous week.

He is joined in that illustrious group by Ryder Cup team mate Henrik Stenson, who lifted the Claret Jug at Royal Troon in 2016 and who will also be part of a stellar field at The Renaissance Club this summer.

Now in his 13th consecutive season as a European Tour member, McIlroy is making his sixth appearance at the Scottish Open and his first since 2017 at Dundonald Links.

The three-time Race to Dubai winner will contest the event on the world-famous stretch of East Lothian coastline known as Scotland’s Golf Coast for the first time.

McIlroy will be part of a world-class field, which also includes The 2016 Open Champion Stenson, American star Matt Kuchar, defending champion Brandon Stone of South Africa, and his fellow Rolex Series winners – local favourite Russell Knox and former World Number One Lee Westwood, with further star names to be announced.

This year the tournament will be played for the first time at The Renaissance Club – which was founded in 2008 and nestles on 300 picturesque acres along the Firth of Forth – when it takes its place as the third event in the 2019 Rolex Series, the premium category of tournaments on the Race to Dubai, each with a minimum prize fund of US$7million.

It will once again be followed by the Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open, which will be played over the same course, from August 8-11, 2019.

The Scottish Open has been billed as the perfect day out for all the family, with food and drink outlets in the championship village as well as retail experiences and entertainment for all ages.
