Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open 2021
Three of the world’s highest ranked players have confirmed their participation in the 2021 Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open, with American stars Collin Morikawa and Xander Schauffele set to tee it up alongside multiple Rolex Series winner Tyrrell Hatton at the Renaissance Club from July 8-11, 2021.
World Number Six Morikawa, who burst onto the world stage with a maiden Major Championship victory at the 2020 US PGA Championship, and World Number Four and four-time PGA Tour winner Schauffele, who finished third at The Masters last month, are set to make their debuts at Scotland’s National Open.
They will be joined by World Number Eight Hatton as the Englishman goes in search of a record fifth Rolex Series title and his second this season, following his success at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship in January.
Morikawa and Schauffele will bid to follow in the footsteps of compatriots Rickie Fowler and Phil Mickelson by finding success in Scotland, the Home of Golf, as the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open once again takes its place in the week before The Open at Royal St George’s.
“I’m excited to play in Scotland for the first time,” said Morikawa. “I’m looking forward to making my debut in the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open and playing in the Home of Golf. I’ve heard a lot about the tournament, and it will be a lot of fun to tee it up on the European Tour again.”
The Renaissance Club was founded on respect for the traditions of the game. Tom Doak was hired to create a world-class course with regard to his renowned ability to move very little earth; showcasing the natural features of an incredible property such as Renaissance.
Our greens crew hails from the local area and brings vast experience of links turf. The condition of the course is paramount and has already resulted in the Renaissance Club being approached with regard to hosting major international tournaments. At over 7300 yards, par 71, the back tees are not for the fainthearted. Fear not as the variety of tees (7300 – 5500 yards) allows members to mix and match teeing grounds on a hole-by-hole basis, usually dependent on the wind!
The club is also home to a fantastic practice area. At 400 yards long, stocked with Titleist Pro V1 balls and sheltered in the trees, our range gives you the opportunity to hone your game with our highly trained professional staff. In keeping with the family ethos we run children’s camps, regular ladies mornings and of course one on one lesson options.
