Fowler confirms Scottish Open
Rickie Fowler confirmed that he would be playing at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open in July.
The American attended the event for the first time in 2014, finishing a respectable tied for eighth place.
Following that, he played outstanding golf at the Open Championship to finish runner-up with Sergio Garcia, while Rory McIlroy took the honours.
In 2015, Fowler is preparing for the second Major of the year at the iconic St Andrews by playing at this weeks’ Irish Open, followed by a return to Aberdeen in July.
“I’ve really enjoyed travelling to Europe and the Middle East over the past year, and I will also be joining Rory in Ireland this week,” the 26-year-old told europeantour.com.
“I had a great couple of weeks playing links golf at Royal Aberdeen and Hoylake last year, and there is no question that my experience of adapting my game to links conditions in Aberdeen contributed to my runner-up finish in The Open the following week.
“It should be a blast to play Gullane in the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open before heading up the coast to St Andrews the following week.”
Fowler is coming of a sensational win at the Players Championship, in which BetBright have McIlroy at 4/1, and where Fowler played the final four holes in five under to force a three-way playoff, which he won.
