  • Paul Lawrie made European Tour history in this championship in 2000.  Starting round one from the tenth tee, the 1999 Open champion recorded a hole-in-one.  He was the first player to begin a European Tour event with a hole-on-one, a record equalled by Thomas Levet in the .2007 Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles. He also aced the par three tenth in round one.
  • Since the event became part of The European Tour International Schedule in 1999, four of the winners have made this event their first victory.  They are: Warren Bennett (1999), Paul Casey (2001), Soren Kjeldsen (2003) and Emanuele Canonica (2005).
  • Defending champion Marc Warren defeated Simon Wakefield twelve months ago in a playoff.  Both of the Scot's European Tour victories have come via sudden-death.  The first was the Scandinavian Masters, beating Robert Karlsson in 2006.  He followed George Burns, David Feherty, Craig Parry, Paul Azinger and Richard Green as players to win their first two events via extra holes.
  • Warren's victory meant he became the seventh scottish golfer to win an official European Tour event on home soil.  They are: Sandy Lyle (1978 European Open, at the Westin Turnberry Resort), Brian Barnes (1981 Tournament Players' Championship at Dalmahoy), Ken Brown (1984 Glasgow Open, at Haggs Castle), Colin Montgomerie (1999 The Barclays Scottish Open at Loch Lomond and the 2005 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at St Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns), Paul Lawrie (1999 Open Championship, at Carnoustie and 2001 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, at St Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns), Stephen Gallacher (2004 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, at St Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns) and Warren (2007 Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles - The Gleneagles Hotel).
