2020 Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open
The Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open will return to East Lothian when The Renaissance Club hosts Scotland’s National Open on the European Tour for the second successive season from Thurs 9th – Sun 12th July 2020.
Spectators flocked to Scotland’s Golf Coast to see a world-class field in action in July 2019 as The Renaissance Club hosted the Scottish Open for the first time, with over 66,000 spectators descending on the picturesque Tom Doak-designed course – the highest attendance figure since the tournament began travelling to venues across the country in 2011, following a 16-year spell at Loch Lomond Golf Club.
Bernd Wiesberger became the latest European Tour star to be crowned a Rolex Series champion when he claimed a dramatic victory at the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open.
It took three play-off holes in the twilight to separate the Austrian and Benjamin Hébert but that was not the only drama at The Renaissance Club.
The scoring at Renaissance was simply incredible with Wiesberger and Hebert’s 22 under total matching the lowest ever in a Rolex Series event and setting a new record for the Scottish Open. The five under par cut matched the lowest of the season and we had every score in the 60s barring 60 itself. The most remarkable scoring achievement of the week may go to Henrik Stenson, who only dropped shots on one of his 72 holes. The Swede may be a Major Champion, Race to Dubai Champion and Ryder Cup great but he had never done that before.
In 2020, the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open will once again form part of the European Tour’s Rolex Series, the premium category of events each with a minimum prize fund of $7 million, as well as taking its traditional slot in the week before The Open Championship.
It will be followed closely by the Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open on the same course on August 13-16, a key event in the schedules of many of the world’s best female golfers which will be played the week before the AIG Women’s British Open.
